Could you help me out here? I wanted to build a new desktop for myself, for gaming, and I was wondering if you could help me out a bit.
I have a fairly limited budget of $1k, that can be passed but really no more than $1,200.
Could someone who has made a computer like this lately please give me the specs and pieces? Sorry I don't know where to start in my research, I haven't been following the latest info on this subject for the past year and a half.

OS?) and such.
Here's a very limited example of what you should get (links to what won't change):
