Need a compact gaming build

Hey guys, so I'm looking for a compact gaming build with a GTX 960 or R9 380 inside it, that I could bring with me everywhere. I'm from the Philippines and these coming months I would frequently travel everywhere. I wouldn't worry about the monitor though. My budget is 45,000 PHP (Philippine Peso), or roughly 1000 USD. Thank you.

I could but what would be the point, as this is a gaming rig... He would just be wasting money. With a 960 or 380 you can even use the i3-6100 and it would be fine.

I would get a better gpu instead.

Check the benchmarks for (6600k and 6700k)

I'd add more storage at some point but this will be awesome
