I need a $1000 gaming part list.

Budget: $1000

Location: Southern California

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Just gaming. (Skyrim, CS:GO, Fallout 4)

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): I need a Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse,

Operating System required: Windows 8

I would like the build to look good too. So if you have to sacrifice a little bit of power for a nicer looking case that is okay.

Used MicroCenter pricing for CPU since one in Southern CA (Tustin). Two builds close to $1000.00; one just under using 4690k, second $100.00 more moving up to new architecture with Skylake CPU.

Just get a CM 212. I'm doubtful of the TX3's ability to cool a Skylake chip.
