My First Build Keeping it Under 1000$

Hello, I have been planning on building a pc for some time now and was wondering if it can be improved while keeping it under 1000$.

Any advice is welcome as I have never done anything like this before.

Thanks in advance.

You could probably find some cheaper ram and save $10-15. Then you could step up to the 4670k or 4690k and still be under $1000. I'd also stay away from that raidmax power supply. Should be able to find something better around that price. Look at the corsair builder series.

Thanks, I'll probably go for G.Skill ram. What do you think about evga power supplies?

I think they're pretty good. I know the G2 series are good. They might be pricy though.
