Hi! I am trying to put together a gaming rig. I would prefer to use Amazon for all parts as I have Prime and love the hassle free returns. I would also like to stick with i7 processor, preferably the 4790k. I would really appreciate your suggestions.

  • Budget: $1000 - $1200
  • Location: East Coast US
  • Only need the tower, have everything else, will be running Windows 10.

I think the CPU price is gone, but for OP the price will be around 1100.

No benefit in upgrading to i7, doesn't really factor in future proofing? Thinking of swapping the XFX for this Sapphire card (out of stock until the 2nd though): http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-11244-01-20G-Radeon-NITRO-Graphics/dp/B015DXHEAW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456277443&sr=8-1&keywords=sapphire+r9+390
