First build, 1200 budget Gaming PC

Hello would like some help finding the best gaming PC I could afford. Best bang for the buck. I prefer intel over and but if the cost is better for the performance I wouldn't mind it. I would like to have a solid state drive in the build and a modular power supply. I do not need a monitor or case in the build. Just computer components. Thanks for the help :)

I dont know if its just me, but I would never suggest a Radeon ive owned 2 and they were never stable and horrible driver support compared to NVIDIA
