Gaming computer - 1100$ budget - 60 fps or more

Hi, thanks for clicking on my post. I am new to computer building and I don't really know what I am building. I need a gaming build that is affordable, preferably around 1100$ including a monitor that is 60hz. I prefer Intel for the CPU and at least a r7 280x graphics card. I have looked at cases and found this - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-case-spec01redled - I just need like 1 more fan that is close to high quality and would prevent over heating, another preference is a cpu cooler, so that could be a high quality fan or liquid cooling system. Over all I just need 60 or more frames whilst gaming with Skype open and possibly streaming on twitch.tv or listening to music. I'm a multi-tasker lol. If you do read this post and don't really know any parts that would suit me, I would also appreciate it if you could refer me to a site where they have top quality gaming computer that fit my budget. Thanks!

maybe the i5 4690k is a bit enthusiastic for this budget

you want the hyper 212 cooler as minimum

i would go with ddr3 1600 also

that psu is overkill any cheaper alternatives

that monitor isnt the best either

what you want is perfectly feasible by may require going AMD if you cant sort this out abit or allow a slightly bigger budget

Thanks for the build! Also, just wondering if its optional to add a case fan since I don't see one here. Btw, since you are using this atm as you said in your comment, what games do you play, how many fps uncapped, and does it overheat much? One last question is can I over clock the CPU and GPU? Thanks so much!

The gpu you cant oc but the cpu can. overheat umm you can add a fan if needed to like bf4 will stress your pc. Games that i play include bf4, minecraft, cod, and assasins creed. But overall its a good pc. So if you end up buying it you made a good choice

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/HXpTVn this is something I threw together myself, do these parts look good? its almost at my price range and I was told that the CPU and GPU are amazing. I just don't know if they really are and if they can be overclocked. Im a noob at this lol
