I have put lots of posts on here of some computers that I have designed in my head for my first build, but I want to know what you guys can come up with. I want to know exactly what parts to buy for a gaming pc for around $1000. I would also like to know what parts I should buy for a pc around $1500 and how much better it would be in comparison to the other one. Please put links or specific names of parts so I know what to look up. Just for some background on me, I want to be able to play games like starcraft 2 hots and skyrim on at least high, preferably ultra, and also want it to get on the internet and do some work. Thank you for helping me with this
If it's just gaming then here is what I have for a $1000 build. It would be nice if you had a HDD or optical drive you could reuse somewhere so we could fit in a 120GB SSD but I couldn't at that price without sacrificing performance elsewhere.
For $1500, I have a similar build but upgraded your HDD to a 2TB WD Black, a 256GB Samsung 840 Pro, upgraded the GPU to a 7970 Vapor-X, upgraded your case to something way more stylish, and upgraded your PSU.
