$1500 Gaming/Editing build

I'm looking for a good build that can play most/every game @ 1080p on ultra & at high while recording.
($1700 is my real budget but i don't really want to go that high but if that's what it takes to get a decent rig than you can go over the $1500 mark)

  1. How close is your nearest Microcenter?

    Do you need an OS, mouse, key, speakers, monitor? How big do you want the motherboard? do you want a smaller physically sized PC or does it not matter? It wouldn't affect performance.

    I need a monitor but i don't put that in with my pc's budget & i've already found one i like but i don't need any of those other things

    This thing will run every game at its highest settings @1080p, but if you want you can always slap a GTX 780 instead for even more raw power.

    If you want to go the other way. you can downgrade your CPU to the i5-4670k for an easy $100 savings.

    Good luck!

    This is my recommendation.

    16GB RAM for modded 64bit games.
    An Air cooler thats cheaper more reliable and performs the same as h100i
    OS gets own SSD. 256GB 840 Pro for Game storage.
    Fastest 280X
    MicroATX. 660 PLATINUM PSU.

    You still never mentioned anything about being near a Microcenter?
