Hi, I am looking to build a new computer sometimes this December, somewhere around 1000-1200. I do not need a monitor,mouse, or keyboard. I am mostly gonna be using this for gaming so games like bf4,dota2,LoL,guild wars 2, etc

I would like my MOBO to be either gigabyte or ASUS, power supply a seasonic or cosair,

this is so far what I have, but i am willing to make any changes

Nothing's listed on that link buddy. Regardless, I'd suggest ASUS of those two mobo manufacturers. I've only had problems with Gigabyte. I'd go with an i5 processor, one of the $300 graphics cards like the R9 280X or the GTX 770, and supporting components.

Here's an example:

Just something I threw together with 5 minutes on that site, but it should work. You can also see that you can get an even better graphics card if you take advantage of those rebates. Have fun!

That build looks pretty solid. Just add in 8GB of memory for ~$50 and a sufficient power supply. Should still have money left for a gfx card in the low $300s.

Well you didn't list a motherboard, ram, or psu.
Nonetheless, you had a good starting point.

-Added a good quality Asus motherboard that supports overclocking.
-Added good, cheap ram.
-Put in a SSD for fast boot and loading times.
-I know it's not a Seasonic or Corsair psu, but XFX is a Seasonic OEM psu so it's just as good as Seasonic psus. It's also on a really good deal.
-Upgraded the gpu to a R9-280X.

I would suggest buying the motherboard, psu, ram, and maybe the case right now. The motherboard and ram are on great deals (haven't seen anything like that this cheap) due to Black Friday and it will probably end soon. The psu is on an extremely amazing deal (cheaper than any 500-550w psu deals I've seen the past couple of months) that ends tomorrow. The case is fairly cheap as well as the lowest I've seen it was ~$80.
