Hello everyone. I am trying to build a new gaming pc that will last for a while into the future and is slightly upgradable. I have given myself a budget of 1000 dollars. I don't have any restrictions other than id like to include a monitor (1080p) and keep the case on a slightly smaller scale. Any input or changes would be greatly appreciated. These prices come from Newegg.

Corsair Obsidian 350d (89.99)

Gateway 21.5" monitor (99.99)

WD 1tb hdd (64.99)

EVGA superclocked gtx 760 (259.99)

Rosewill HIVE 550w PSU (69.99)

Corsair Vengeance 8gb 1600mhz (73.99)

Gigabyte B85 socket 1150 Motherboard (79.99)

Intel i5-4570 Haswell 3.2ghz (199.99)

Total: 938.92
