  3. I'd be happy to help you if you can answer a couple questions. What size monitor do you prefer? Is IPS (higher color quality) or high resolution a must? How much are you looking to spend on a keyboard or mouse? A gaming keyboard and mouse can greatly increase performance more than a better video card sometimes, and they last years longer than anything else, as they do not become outdated. Will you be overclocking? Do you have a preference towards AMD/Intel or AMD/NVidia? What form factor (mini itx/micro mid full ATX) do you prefer? Do you care how it looks or do you just want a good case, disregarding appearances? How much storage space do you need? I know it's a lot of questions, but it will help you get the best build for your money.
  4. Best answer This is a very well rounded build, with a powerful graphics card and processor, a good motherboard, a very fast SSD, good power supply that will allow an upgrade in the future, good cooler, great keyboard and mouse, and an IPS monitor, basically everything you want in a computer. It leaves some room in the budget to upgrade something, or to just spend less money. My reasoning behind an IPS monitor is for higher color quality and viewing angles, it makes a huge difference. The keyboard is mechanical, which means it will last a very long time, strain your fingers less, increase typing speed, and be better overall. Try one at a store if you get a chance, it's definitely worth the higher cost. The mouse is just a good mouse that fits most people's hands and has adjustable weights, but I encourage you to look at different ones, one you think looks nice, or has more or less buttons, it's really all preference. One of the best mice I ever used was a $20 Logitech office mouse, I only replaced it for more buttons for MMOs. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I'd be happy to help.
