Hello, I am going to br building my computer, and my dad has given me $1,000 to use for it. I want to save money (I get all the cash I didnt use) but I dont want to be skimpy. I do mid range gaming, I would be playing Minecraft, DayZ, Garry's Mod, Team Fortress Two, World of Tanks, Maybe some GTA, and Kerbal Space Program. I want to get 60+ FPS on things like DayZ, and Gmod preferably with no lag. I also do a lot of video editing, recording, and streaming, so I definately want an AMD Processor for that. So, Yeah. I know I want the Cooler Master HAF 912 for a case, and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo for my CPU cooler. So yeah.... I also want at least 8 GB of RAM. so yeah.... Thank y'all SO much for looking at this



P.S. In recomendations, please can you only chose from Newegg and Micro Center. (only ones my dad will let me buy ftom)

This build should be fairly good and will allow you to skim a good $140 off the top. Though if you want to make it a bit better, and SSD would be a good upgrade.
