When are you purchasing the parts ?
now or by the end of january next year.
moving to a new apartment in next year, so getting the PC then might be a good idea.
What is your budget ? 800-1000 (excl monitor), or more or less, quite flexible really, but i'd prefer not to overkill stuff

What are your needs ? runs recent games smoothly at highest setting

Your expectations from the PC :

Your location : indonesia

Your preferred sellers/websites : none in particular

Your part choices :

Are you upgrading or taking parts from any older PC/laptop ?
nope

Why are you upgrading ?

Your current PC specs :

Do you plan to upgrade this PC ?

Do you need a OS or any other software ?
yes please

Do you need any Monitor ?
yes please 21"-27", that can make use the most of the PC, again no overkill dont need 4k res monitor)

Do you need any peripheral ?

Any other notes : i also go for looks, soo help me pick something that looks nice (both the monitor and the PC).

thank you very much. and again, im a complete noob, an explanation for the choices would be VERY much appreciated.

i understand most of you might have no clue about sellers in indonesia, so dont bother looking into this. I'll a newegg/amazon reference will do.

cheers

You want your GPU and CPU to be equal to avoid bottlenecking, plenty of RAM (16gb), a power supply capable of handling that, and a motherboard that supports it all. You need a harddrive to store information and an SSD to put your OS and games on. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1Npbh That has all of that. If you feel that is too much you can drop the SSD (it isn't completely necessary) and get a 7950 instead of the 7970 and save around $50.
