This is what i can do for 1000$, but this beast can run all games on High. Also you can add SSD in future it will be cheap like 50$ 128GB or 100$ 256GB. If you have any question let me know.

High? You can max out any game you could ever imagine on Ultra at 1080p and still get 120 FPS! That's overkill, man.
