Default Gaming Rig

First post

OK I want to build a computer, not just average but a gamer.
I got around $900 to spend (Less would be better, but I ain't compromising if anything)
I want a PCI express graphics card.
AMD BABY!!
A midtower, not a small or mini or anything.
I don't want watercooling, this will be my first build, I'm taking it slow.
So what do you guys recommend?
Is $900 enough?
Thanks in advance.

Edit: I have speakers, monitor, keyboard etc.
Just need the guts of the Tower, and the Case!

-do u need a monitor, keyboard, speakers, or mouse?
