I was thinking of this.

A little bit over budget but...

Dual monitor 1080p, 1ms response time. (Realized I forgot the keyboard, can cheap a bit on the motherboard to choose one if you want ;) )

Windows 8.1 :3

For some intense streaming, 16GB RAM. Maybe you decide to do Youtube too, so 2TB of storage too. 250GB of SSD for the OS and some important games/programs.

R9 390 to CRUSSHH IT :3

Enjoy.
