Gaming build help request ($1200-1500)

I posted in pcparts forum and got a build reply, but nothing regarding my questions/concerns. Reposting in case anyone has something else here because I've always used this place for my build help (been 2 years or more). Also is the GeForce 980 a huge upgrade to the 970 for the 150$ diff?---

Budget: $1200-1500

– Location: Las Vegas, NV (USA)

– Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming (would like my graphics card to be able to stream to a flat screen separate from monitor if that's possible to watch TV from pc?)

– Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): ALL, using old PC for kids to use. The extra 300 I was leaving out for the monitor (some on newegg for like 250$ for 24" but I'm not sure how good they are for gaming?)

– Operating System required: Yes (was looking at an OEM Windows 8.1 , 64 bit at fry's here in town for 84$)

I'd like this to run high graphical games for the next couple years to come (usually upgrade every 2 or 3 years). If I truly need to increase my budget for that I will but would like to keep it down. I don't do any fancy scripting with my keyboards when I game so it's not required if that kills the budget. I'd like enough RAM to not have to upgrade either.

Truly appreciate all your help! Thanks, wolfespawn

    Keyboard, mice just get whatever you want for those and the 970 will do great at 1080p no need for a gtx 980 ti quad sli like some people here say
