I'm trying to build an htpc for my living room that i will do some gaming on. not much, mostly guild wars 2, elder scrolls online, and rts games. Also trying to keep it around $500. I should be able to go a little higher but nothing crazy. Mostly decided to build this vs buying a ps4 for now.


**I do also own a copy of windows 8 already. Sorry I forgot to mention that earlier.
