$1000 Gaming PC (hardware only)

Hey all! So recently, I've been struggling on picking parts, and have decided it would probably be best if I get some one else to do it for me.

I will use it mostly for gaming, though it will of course be used for other things, like school work, and a place to write and store my pictures. The color scheme doesn't really matter, because I will be storing it in between my desk and a wall. For the same reason, a windowed side panel is not needed. I have a max budget of around $1000, but if you need to exceed (by a small amount) that will be okay as well. Try making it quiet and cool. I plan on playing with a good bit of mods specifically Skyrim.

If you could recommend a cost effective monitor and headset, that would be much appreciated.

My offering.

Fabulous air cooler, top of the line i5, SSD boot drive with HDD storage, a 390 to max nearly any game at 1080p, a sleek and wonderful to work in Phanteks case, and a highly reliable semi-modular power supply.

I didn't use any rebates, and the H7 comes with great thermal paste. Also the ram you suggested is just as fast as the one I suggested but costs 35% more.

Your list looks fine overall, though, considering it's essentially the same as mine after changing the case.

Then let me fix that. Thanks. I think this is what I'll go with.
