pc kit need advice

i'm looking at tigerdirect intel kits not sure which of these is the best for the money and preformance|c:333|lp:1000:hp:0|&Sort=3&Recs=30

and i need some help filling in the blanks what these kits are missing for a high end gaming rig

i had in mind a NZXT mid tower case but a full tower might be better.

thinking about liquid cooling instead of fans

or another real nice looking case with enough usb ports and stuff to cover what i need and my fav colors are black,white,blue


whats a good solid state drive thats reasonably priced that might not come in those kits ?

i currently have $500 saved atm and going for 1k total and i might have a little extra to spend on extra parts later on.

i wanted to avoid ordering parts from several sites.

    Combo deals with a bunch of different components like that tend to be a way to get people to take older and/or garbage hardware off their hands.  Having to buy a couple of parts that you're going to toss out anyway and overpay for others can easily overwhelm the combo discount.

    Several points:

    1)  If you don't have the money now, then wait until you do, and then ask again.  Prices will change, and even parts that are a good deal today might well be overpriced later.

    2)  That's too much to pay for a GeForce GTX 660 Ti.  You can get a far superior Radeon HD 7950 for essentially the same price.

    3)  I'd get a higher quality power supply than that.   At a lower wattage, it will be about the same price, even.  Corsair's CX V2 series is fine for entry level systems, but not what you want on a $1000 budget.
