Hello everyone I'm looking to build my first computer ever so naturally I have no freaking idea what I'm doing at all. The games I'm attempting to play on my current PC are Dayz standalone and Rust but to put it very lightly... I'm experiencing horrendous difficulties. At the moment I got an idea from a Youtube link but I'm not sure about it. Is this how you would choose to use $1000
it looks fine really, solid parts from solid companies, and a good amount of power from the CPU and GPU too
the only suggestion I would make is to downgrade the hard drive to a Caviar Blue or a Seagate Barracuda, Caviar Black is for performance, you don't need a performance HDD when you have an SSD to do the heavy lifting, a nice general use hard drive will be enough.
the money you save can go towards upgrading that PSU to a modular version, so you can have better cable management, and/or some case fans
