Hi, Id like to build a gaming pc with a 1200$ budget.

- No Monitor (still please tell me a good option for a monitor)

- No OS

- Cool looking :P

- If you can a pcpartpicker link

- If you want explain why you choose those parts or just the important ones

- Please add wifi, cd/dvd

- LED (but it wont count in the 1200$ budget)

- Let me know good mouse and keyboard (dont add it to the budget)

Thanks for your time.

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

I'd spend an extra $20 and replace the i5 with a Xeon E3 1231 V3. It's an i7 4790 for about the price of an i5 4690K(you can't overclock it, BTW).

But if you're adamant about not going outside of $1200, then I'd suggest buying 2 GTX 960s and putting them in SLI, which will save you about $140, but you'll have slightly weaker performance:

And while you're doing that, you'll have enough to upgrade to an SSHD:

However, if you're willing to step about $10-15 outside your budget, then stick with the R9 Fury and the HDD.

I agree with the Xeon but later on, he can Crossfire 390's which is WAYYYY more powerful than 9600's in SLI.  And SSHD's are more for laptops and at that budget, he should be able to get both an SSD and an HDD.
