Building Gaming PC, Need help with Parts

Okay, I need help with picking out parts for a gaming PC I'm willing to build myself. I was going to purchase from CyberPower but then I did a little more research and in the process read too many horror stories to continue. Anyways I have now decided to build my very first gaming computer and I just need help picking out parts. I would like to be able to run Tomb Raider on Ultimate settings at 60 FPS and Crysis 3 at 60 FPS also. My budget is between $700 to $1500. If you could give me PCpartpicker links or similar sites please, I would be most grateful......unless you feel like linking me to a buy page for every single part. :)

    That looks great but could you recommend the best monitor, gaming mouse and keyboard on my budget also? Make sure the monitor you recommend is at least 27 inches. :)
