All of your submissions seems to be good contenders for The Best Build in this category however I'd like to remind everyone submitting to re-read the rules posted in the Opening Post and tweak your submissions. Notable tasks by some/most of you, would be to change parts with relevant links(adhering to the rules) and also to stick to Amazon and/or Newegg, mixing and matching both if you think it helps. Again, re-read the rules and all shall be clear.

Please understand that we want all of your submissions to go through, at the very least to fall on the eyes of the Juror's. That being said, keep em coming!

Case Fan: Cooler Master - SickleFlow (Blue) 69 CFM 120mm Fan ($8.86 @ Newegg)
Base Total: $999.74

Scraping in at just under $1000 (at the time of writing), this build is something that I would happily build for myself, if I was limited to this budget. In fact, I recently used the same top 4 components to rebuild my dad's PC.

As the name suggests, it should have no trouble playing most games on Ultra settings with at least 60fps at 1440p (or 1080p). Rather than sacrificing components for a more powerful GPU, I chose quality parts with decent storage, and a fast boot SSD.

Probably being picky,but how can this be one of the best when Newegg Business prices are used?
Here are the ground rules:
  • Only one build per budget category, per user. Multiple builds from a single user or duplicate accounts will be disqualified.
  • Do not go over budget.
  • Use only Amazon AND/OR Newegg to source parts.
  • DO NOT USE Amazon 3rd Party Sellers or Newegg Business to source parts.!!!!!
  • Use list prices only: coupons, rebates, bundles or any other limited-time offers will not be accepted.
  • Do not include shipping or tax in your final budget.
  • Do not include the Operating System, Monitor or VR Headset, Keyboard, Mouse or Gamepad.
  • All builds must have a name.
  • Do not put your forum handle in the name of your build, and avoid odd capitalizations & symbols.
  • Provide links to the Amazon and/or Newegg product pages of each component — we encourage users to use PCPartPicker's System Build for speedy construction. Do not post a link to your build, but rather please be sure to export as BBCode for a quick copy/paste to the forums:
It also said best build under $1000,- in the title not best streaming build under $1000,- as said in the poll.
