hi, I'm trying to build a gaming pc, this pc should give the best gaming performance (i.e. playing bf4, eso, star citizen, titanfal etc)while streaming live and when editing videos for the best price. i will first start with one monitor with possible options for a secondary monitor.
my have a budget of £950 for a full rig.

so my question is which processor and graphics cards to choose?
AMD or INTEL
AMD or NVIDIA

apologies for not phrasing it correctly. my £950 budget includes the monitor, mouse, and keyboard.
for the hardware excluding the monitor, mouse, keyboard my budget is round £800. I'm going to invest more on the gpu and less on the cpu.

can you pls give your main suggestion and another option i.e. if main is intel and nividia, suggestion is and and and.

thanks
