$1000 Dollar Gaming PC Build

Hello Tom'sHardware junkies. I am here today asking for your opinion on the absolute best gaming PC possible for $1000. I do not need HDD's, or an operating system. I am planning on buying on Cyber Monday this year, but i want a good base thought of what i should get. I will be mainly using this for gaming, but i will also be using it for some video uploading on YouTube, and multitasking. Thanks again.
