Hello everyone. I am trying to build a new gaming pc that will last for a while into the future and is slightly upgradable. I have given myself a budget of 1000 dollars. I don't have any restrictions other than id like to include a monitor (1080p) and keep the case on a slightly smaller scale. Any input or changes would be greatly appreciated. These prices come from Newegg.
