$1000-1300 Gaming First Build

I need to be able to play games the same/better than XboxOne/PS4

I do 3d Graphics (Blender, etc)

Watch movies

I have $1,000- If my xbox sells I'll have $1300, but idk how fast that will sell ..

I need the best that I can get under/close to that cap.

Here is a list I have so far:

Please let me know what you think, can I do better?
