Budget: $1000

Location: California, USA

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): None, I have 2 monitors and I often have Netflix/Hulu up while gaming.

Operating System required: Windows

As for games I tend to lean towards Blizzard titles(currently sucked in to Diablo, looking at Overwatch coming up) but I would also like to be able to play the AAA titles from my Steam library as well.

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated. And, if it's impossible that's okay too.

You can always add an SSD later-on.. But can u change out a lesser CPU??

A Tomshardware EDITOR RECOMMENDED Motherboard..

Bechmarks have suggested a +4 % performance in effective speed favoring the 390..

A Tier-1 R9 390 from the GPU TIer-list.. scroll down to the R9 390 section.

I don't think Xeons are meant for gaming and the 970 almost always gets beat out by the 390. Just saying as advice

Wouldn't it be better if he was able to overclock though?
