I want to build a gaming PC that would run games at as close to max settings as possible at 30 fps min while recording. My budget is 1500 $.
I don't need any peripherals and I can raise my budget for 100 $ if necessary. And I am also going to have 3 monitors connected, if that changes anything.

Will you overclock?

This, as far as I can tell. If you want to overclock, this is probably still the best, but it's all open to some tweaking. You also might want to look into the case, and for a bit more, you can add a second graphics card in there, although you may have to get a slightly bigger power supply, for maybe $20 more. (I put in a beautiful power supply, if you don't plan on going SLI route)

Spend the remaining cash on quality peripherals, games and whatnot.

Have fun with your new build!
