New build for gameing

Going to be doing a new build. I have read alot of articles but i would like to see what you all think.
Budget is 1000-1200 usd. Primary use is gameing. I want to be able to OC. Would be willing to spend a little bit more but do want to stay in budget if possible. I prefer quality components rather than going cheap. I am not a fan of nvidia GPU i have had too many problems in the past.
