Best 1000$ gaming PC build list

Thanks in advance for the help.
It's going to have to be able to run the best games at 1080p. BUT all I need is the actual computer and a copy of Windows 8. I've already got all peripherals (screen, keyboard, mouse, speakers). ALSO, I'd only like an SSD (about 120GB) as I've already got a large external HDD for all my stuff.
Thanks!

EDIT: AS WELL (one more thing) I don't need an optical drive.

    Thanks for the quick reply! I also forgot to mention that I don't need an optical drive. As well, would an Intel CPU be better seeing as I have a reasonably high budget? I can go all the way to the 1000$.
    Thanks.
  3. It won't make a huge difference tbh. 8core amd is beast
