I've looked through allot of the build submitted recently, but couldn't quite find one that fit my needs, so here goes.
I'm looking to build a new gaming pc for under a thousand dollars, including OS, a monitor, and speakers. I would also prefer to have a SSD, and at least four usb ports (not sure if that kind of thing standard or not, this will be my first time building my own pc).
any help is greatly apreciated

it is possible

where do you live?

and do you want to stick with intel/AMD? because using AMD cpu, will allow more budget on GPU side

Good choice on getting an SSD. I think that is a necessary buy for new builds nowadays. I'll put something together and post it. Are you a fan of Intel, AMD or does it matter which one?

I'm not really well informed on the differences between AMD and intel, although I've heard AMD is better for cheaper builds. that being said, I don't really have a preference as long as it works well XD
