I'm trying to get the best bang for my buck for a custom built computer. I want it to be able to run well and keep up with the new games and allow future upgrades. I would like to keep it under 1000 and here is what I've come up with so far http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Builder111111stTime/saved/XFXP6h Thanks and have a good day. 8).

This will have much stronger gaming performance for your money. It will also be more upgrade-able due to the better motherboard which will allow you to overclock your cpu in the future if you choose to get a k series cpu. Since this build is still under budget, I would also add a 250GB ssd to help with loading and boot times.

Will the graphics card allow me to play games at decent temps? This doesn't have to be part of this but do you think it could also be able to record games and still keep good fps?

The Rx480 is a very capable 1080p card, you will probably get 60+ FPS and fairly low temps and will do a good job recording, although I kinda recommend an NVIDIA GPU so you can record with shadowplay, it's pretty nice to have, unless you really need the customization it's perfect

I was looking at a 1060 3 gb, would that be better for recording and would it stay the same performance and temp wise?

It would be a good card, NVidia is also releasing the 1050 and 1050ti really soon
