Hi everyone , I need to build a gaming pc on a budget that can play Modern Games on High (Doesn't have to be Max) Settings. Will be using for the new FPS Games, Some Modern RPG's, and minecraft. Only thing I dont need is optical drive. I have a 1tb hard drive, but wanted to add an ssd to this build

Need monitor, mouse, keyboard, OS etc

Approximate Purchase Date: Soon

Budget Range: 1200$ max Before Rebates, LOWER THE BETTER ( as long as it achieves my goals)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Recording Gameplay.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Anywhere is fine

Location: California

Parts Preferences: No real preference on parts

Overclocking: Maybe
