After days and many hours of research, I have decided I now want to spend $1000 vs my original $800. What I want......
1) This is mainly for gaming. No recording, video editing, etc. Strictly gaming, movies and web browsing.
2) I think I want an i5 CPU. If you think I should not go that route then please explain why, but it seems that Intel is the best quality.
3)Feel free to include cooling if necessary. I do not have a preference for overclocking on way or another. I simply want the most performance for the money, so if that would be an OC with cooling then so be it. I only use MSI Afterburner for OCing.
I will be getting BF4 and I also play Planetside 2 a lot. I just want the most bang for my buck
I do NOT need a keyboard/mouse/speakers or an OS. I DO need a monitor. 1080p.
There ya go. $1000. Make me a beast Thanks in advance! Will be back tonight to check answers. I am tired of doing research and one of the builds posted here will be bought by Tuesday.
I am in love with this build and plan on building it when my tax return arrives. The Time lapse of the build is a huge bonus for a first time build. The only thing you might want to do if you go with this build is switch out the psu. You can get better quality for the same price. I'm also adding the SSD which I consider optional.
