[SOLVED] $1,000 - $1,100 gaming build recommendations

A friend mine is ready to build a new gaming rig and he'd like build suggestions for a $1,100 max budget. He already has a new Seasonic Focus GX-750 PSU and a Noctua NHU-12S cooler. He also own two old displays which are sufficient for now. Therefore the budget should be allocated to CPU / MB / RAM / GPU / storage / case. Thank you.
