Hi there! As the title suggest, I'm looking to build my first gaming rig. Up until now, I have been using my laptop (bad I know) to play games such as League of Legends, Diablo III, and Guild Wars 2 sooo it's time to stop doing that, haha.

Will this set up work out okey? I'm mostly going to use it for gaming and maybe a little design work (but I have my laptop for that). I'm looking at a $1000-$1500 budget at the moment..

Any advice or tips is greatly appreciated! (If I can save money anywhere that'd be great as well~)

Thank you! :D
