I'm building my first gaming PC. My budget is $1000 (usd) This is not including a monitor, keyboard, or mouse. I can go over budget about $100. I will be using the computer for gaming, recording, editing, and rendering videos. I would prefer an AMD CPU and an AMD GPU. A PC Partpicker list would be appreciated.
Thank you all in advance!
Here is what I have so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FmnddC

It would be valuable experience for you to start off and present us with a list of parts. That way you get to do some of the work. :)

You're going to have to scale back a little if you want to stay in your $1,000 budget. :)
