Looking for some help with my first build. Windows 10 and a nice 27" monitor need to be included in the budget. Will be using the PC for everything (gaming, graphics, programming, streaming, etc). Lets see what you guys can come up with!

I feel like people jump at the idea of a reward and don't put much thought into the builds.

Optimized for fairly quiet operation with a sound dampening case, a good aftermarket cooler, and other things considered.

4790k is great for gaming, streaming, editing, rendering. gtx 970 is still a great card without overclock, it also is very easy to overclock. finding a cheap enough 27" monitor is a hard job my friend. But all in all able to keep it under budget! Also gave you the extra power in the PSU for some breathing room.

Xeon processor, performance similar to an i7 just without the integrated graphics which you wont be really using. 16gb of ram, an ssd, a R9 Fury for graphics which will be a beast, a 750W PSU to juice up the whole system.

This build is 40$ above budget but doesn't include mail-in rebates.
