I want to upgrade from a laptop to a desktop, and this is my first time making one so I need help. I only have $1000 budget for the desktop, and I'm going to use this for mostly gaming new gen games with. I have a separate budget of $500 for monitors, headphones, and keyboard; I'll take suggestions on these but they're not required. I also need it to have Windows 10 with it.

Do you plan on overclocking? Any streaming or video editing or just gaming? Any color scheme?

I don't know how to overclock, I might stream, and color does not matter.

I decided to do something different than my usual suggestions to people.

Edit: Forgot SSD

Run anything current and room to upgrade. Z170 MOBO not necessary, but on sale and will give you M.2 capability if decide to add, in addition could add an unlocked CPU later if decide to try to overclock. Also, has SSD, great PSU (big sale on it right now).
