i'm looking to build my first Gaming PC but I have no idea what to build. I have asked friend's for advice but i figures I would come on here and ask for help. I have a max budget of $1,100 I don't have a preference for AMD or Intel so either will do. I plan on playing my games at 1080 as the gaming monitors i currently own are both 144hz @ 1080p. please suggest the build you think bets fits my budget. All the help will be greatly appreciated

I even did a bit under budget. I feel like with this you can definitely mess around with it a bit, but this is what I put at this moment

I'm no expert, just planning on my first build, and I'm about 95% sure I'm going with what I sent.

Interested to see what others say also.
