Hey guys, saved up $1100 and I'm finally able to build a PC. This will be my first build, I literally have nothing except an OS and headset. I want it to be capable of running AAA games at 1080p 60 FPS. It'll also be used to stream Netlfix/Hulu/Twitch. I'd prefer this build to include the r9 390. I live in the US and a few miles away from a Micro Center. I'd like it to have room for upgrades in the future. I can go a little over budget if needed. Thanks!

This looks nice. Only 30 bucks over budget and cool red/black color scheme. Thanks!

I was looking at some widescreen monitors as well. But that one is a bit too pricey. What about this one? http://pcpartpicker.com/part/lg-monitor-25um56p

The ultrawide effect is really diminished at that size. Most people agree that you don't want to go lower than 29". You also lose Freesync and a higher refresh rate by dropping down to that model, which are arguably the best features.

It ain't that pricey if I fit it within your budget :P
