700-1000$ graphic design/gaming pc build

I am wanting to build a graphic design pc but also use it for gaming and school stuf.  

I'm not sure what peripherals you have, but I assume it's just the hardware, so I made this


When pick out monitors make sure you pick an IPS panel for graphic design, also be sure to check the response time, as some IPS panels are slow and you dont want that for gaming. IPS + refresh of 5ms or less.


I assumed you wanted Nvidia for this. If not grab a 7950 or something.

Slimm's build is great! The only thing I think is that you get a 8320, it is the same as the 8350 but at 95W as a 8350 is at 125W, which when you overclock it to 4.0 just like the 8350 it will be at 125W but the 8320 is $20 cheaper! I choose the RAM I actually use myself and its does a lot at such a good price. I got a 7870xt becuase it preforms better than a 7870 and I was able to get for the price of $915.76. Here it is:



CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($207.98 @ SuperBiiz)

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($100.55 @ SuperBiiz)
