Decent gaming pc build for 1200-1500USD?

I want a decent gaming PC that can run games like Witcher 3, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Watch Dogs, etc at High-Ultra settings, and basically last for maybe 4 years, until I have to play games at lowest graphics settings. Can someone recommend a decent gaming build in the range of 1200USD-1500USD? Thanks.

By the way, I am absolutely new to this pc building stuff, so I don't know shit about how to choose...I need help. Also, I can only order either online or in Singapore stores, since I live in Singapore.

I want to know if I should wait till the end of this year for prices to fall and for new products to come out, because I'm only going to buy all the parts and assemble it at the end of this year.

    The 16 GBs of RAM is completely unnecessary for a gaming PC and with the price of the RAM you could have went with a better SSD or a better GPU.

    Also on a side note you can get 3 free games with the R9 290 in the build I made you.
