I'm looking to switch all my gaming needs over to a computer instead of buying one of the new systems. I will primarily be using this computer for gaming, but I also frequently use Excel (which probably won't tax the system). I play a pretty wide range of games (everything from madden, to civilization, to call of duty, to skyrim), but I am not very into online play. I put together this after perusing the forums for a while.
I'd like to run all new games at or around max settings at 1080p and have the computer be somewhat future resistant. I plan on spending around $1200 for all of this. I appreciate any advice on how I can improve this build, and would like a recommendation for a good case to use. Thanks in advance!
I recommend using a 120GB Samsung EVO for your OS and a few games and storing everything else on a WD Black 1TB, which will be similar performing but much cheaper. For the case, I recommend a Corsair 750D, a Corsair C70, Fractal Design R4 with window, or a NZXT switch 810.
