Help with my first PC


I have been refining a list of parts I want for my first PC for a while now, and I am posting it here to see if there are any suggestions anyone would like to make. My budget is $1000 - $1400, but I would like to stay somewhere in the middle of that. I would like to play more shooter/FPS games than my computer can now, and I would like to have solid frames at possibly medium settings. I couldn't find all of the parts I had already picked out on the microcenter PC builder, so here is my pcpartpicker list: I already have a monitor and some hard drives I would like to use, so they are not on the list.

All suggestions are welcome!

    Greetings, Looking over the list that looks very solid for your budget. Keep in mind you may need to look into adding a copy of Windows to your parts list but besides that it looks great!
