Help building a good budge PC

Looking to build my first PC for gaming mostly, some side work on basic email stuff, and recording videos. I want to be around 1.5K including the peripherals and all but that is flexible. I have done some research but the more I dig the more confused I get. Please help!

    Peripherals can eat up a big chunk of that budget depending on what kind you want/need. Do you have a rough idea of what kind of monitor mouse and keyboard you'd be looking for?
  • Thanks for the response. I have done some research on good monitors but you are right, they are very expensive, especially the higherend gaming monitors. With that said, I am still leaning towards a more affordable keyboard and mouse combo but I am willing to spend more on the monitor. What do you advise?

    I would select your monitor and mouse/keyboard first. Let us know what your budget is after deducting those two components.
