[Hardware] January Gaming PC Build Guide ~$1000

Here's the January build guide.  I chose AMD for this build because after going through tons of websites, forums, and videos, I've come to the personal conclusion that side by side that you will not see a difference in gaming.  With that being said, that makes the AMD a very good bang for your buck buy.  Check the video out and leave your questions or comments below.
