So since it's Cyber Monday tomorrow I've decided to finally build one.
And I want to grab all the parts I will need but there are so many of them that I am just not sure which is best. I was thinking about AMD CPU, but a lot of people are saying that Intel is better.
I want to spend around 1000-1100$ on it.

Would anyone mind helping me out, thanks :)

Do you plan to use dual graphic cards in the future?

I mean if it's not too pricy yes I might use dual cards, but if it is I might as well just get single and buy an upgrade later on

Go along the lines of a build like this. Get whichever mobo is on sale that's around $100 and look for deals on the ram, HDD/SDD, and CPU.
