$800 - $1000 Gaminig PC

Budget: $800 -$1000 Location: USA

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming, general work such as office.

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): all monitor keyboard and mouse, i dont need anything highend for the keyboard and mouse

Operating System required: I have a copy of 64bit win7 so (none)

I'm posting here because i want the best bang for my buck, i want intel as i will upgrade down the road, also want the ability to overclock and if liquid cooling is available i would prefer but its not necessary. I would prefer not going with NVIDIA card but will consider if you can show me its the best, also you can list other things for the build that you would recommend cause i will be upgrading it down the road, such as SSD, or other options that arent essential to the build as of now but will make it better.

I would get the Fractal Define S instead, it's about the same price. Also that SSD, it's a little rough, get the slightly more expensive, but still quite cheap Samsung 850 EVO 120GB instead.

Ok im curious as to the heat that the gpu will output, i hear it will turn my room into a sauna from friends because of the power consumption, i was also worried about overclocking as heat will rise with the performance and i dont want to ruin my card.

Yeah the 390 is quite hot compared to its competitor the 970. But it performs better.

that's hard to justify for the price. I would like those type of materials but I would rather invest more in the GPU
