Halp Am Noob $1,000 Budget

I want to hear from the community, who has better computer building knowledge, because i am noobish with pc's. To start off my budget is $1,000. I want strictly gaming pc that will be future proof for upcoming pc games running at 1080p 60-120fps+ on high settings. Aesthetics are a MAJOR key for me, i want to be able to show off my 1k beauty. The color scheme should be nice color combination like white and blue or black and red. Sorry if i come off as picky, but rest assured i value your help and opinions.

this is a very nice black and blue build including the case. The cooler is not needed, you can use the stock one if you want to save money. I just included the cooler for the blue color.

you're welcome... this is the only build suggested with a high end graphics card. The 960 and 380 are mid range gpu. you need to consider that..

at 1080p 60-120fps+

I would have suggested the locked skylake i5 but they are not available yet...

A touch over for the tower only, but it's a beautiful mix of parts that will look really nice once it's fully complete.
