New Build Help

Can someone help me pick out parts for my build? I am interested in having the best gaming computer possible with my budget. My budget is 700-750 but could potentially go up just a little bit more if completely necessary. To make things harder, I need a monitor included in this cost that takes capability of my graphics card. I do not need a keyboard, mouse, or speakers. I believe I can cut out a CD drive if I can install an OS through a flash drive, which I am pretty sure I can. Recommendations? If it is possible I wish to purchase everything from the same store but could split it up if I came out better cost wise. Thanks!
