Need a gaming pc build for under $1k (messed up my other thread)

I need a gaming pc build that's under $1000.
Doesn't need to include mouse, keyboard, monitor, or an OS. Just the hardware inside the tower.
I don't know if I want water cooling because I heard you have to worry about condensation so if I can maybe get a build with fans and one with water cooling?
I'm also looking for a full tower for further modifications to my build.
I prefer amd hardware over intel.


Best regards, Ethos

    Here is a gaming build with an SSD for $1000. If you nix the SSD you could upgrade some other components to let me know if you'd like to do that.
    I went for a full-modular PSU as you said you'd like to do some upgrades, so i'd advise sleeving you cables. If you won't sleeve you cables you could get a cheaper PSU.
