I wish I could spend that much, but I also need a monitor within that $1000, which is why I stated that I needed a monitor above, but thank you very much for your proposal.

Thank you guys a lot for the help! I just wanted to say that I forgot to mention that I might also do some streaming from time to time on this PC. I hope that doesn't change anything, but if it does please let me know, Thanks
