Need Help First time build for a gaming pc with potential!

Budget: $1,000 Location: PA Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): monitor Operating System required: windows 8? Not really sure about 10 right now.

I am looking for a build that will be able to handle most games on steam (witcher 3 to be precise) and some photo editing programs but most important I would like the build that will have enough space as well as components (ie good psu) that will leave room to upgrade. At the moment i am on a 1000$ and need a computer asap but as soon as my budget allows, i want to eventually buy a Geforce 780 ti. Also i do not want to overclock. Thanks for your help.

I'm assuming you meant 980ti not 780ti.

I am not really sure about the motherboard to be honest, but everything else looks amazing. I really really really like that case.
