It's a little over, but if you want to start skimping somewhere, the SSD should go first.

Another something that we need to know, do you have any accessory items? I mean do you have a mouse? keyboard? monitor? Those kinds of things.
The more we know you have the more we can concentrate on other items. If you don't have anything to start with then we will have to include those in your $1000.00 budget. That will really limit what we can suggest for you.

LatiosXT's build is like 3 PS4s. Seriously, that is an impressive build for $1000.

If you need an OS, you'll have to lose about $100. Personally, I would:

I would try to hold onto the SSD as long as possible - makes a considerable difference.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, it helps a lot. I am not sure about changing the case. I need a good case, because if it has a good cooling system i dont have to spend more in fans and all that stuff. After that, which case should i use?

If you want a nice looking case, take a look at the fractal define r4. If you want cheaper, try an Antec 302. I got that for $50 and it's pretty good for the price.
