Hey I am looking for some help choosing the parts of a new gaming pc. I don't need any peripherals all I need is the pc itself and its mostly for gaming, watching streams, internet and general stuff like that. My budget is 1500-1700$ and I'm currently living in Calgary and will do most buying from Memory Express if possible. Also, I prefer Intel and Nvidia compared to AMD. Thank you in advance!
