$800 Gaming/Streaming PC Build Please

Hey guys, well recently, I asked for a $600 build but I realized a $600 build would not be so good for streaming and gaming and all that stuff so I decided that I would buy maybe the end of the year or Early next year so I can up my budget to $800 so yeah now I am asking for an $800 build, please include everything from monitor/mouse/keyboard/OS. I am not sure if I need a wireless adapter or does the MOBO already have one? I can't connect to the ethernet cable because it is in the living room and I want to set up my computer in my room. Thanks in advance.

  2. Best answer
    It's over budget, but considering your needs (gaming, steaming) and the fact that you need WiFi, monitor etc. It's the best I could do! :(
    Would you mind AMD parts? Could make it a little cheaper using a different CPU and motherboard. :)

    well we can't do better than that
    though i will recommend to change monitor and ram
    because this benQ monitor have much better viewing angles and ram is cheaper smaller and of same performance and capacity

  4. Nice recommendations. :)
    G Skill memory is great, I have some myself. It just can have compatibly issues with some MSI motherboards, although a BIOS update will fix this if there are any problems. :)

    Thank you :) I will see if I can up my budget more.

    Thanks to both of you !
  6. No worries! Let us know if you can do that. If not, I'll be able to replace some of the parts with cheaper alternatives, although I wouldn't recommend it. :)

    I picked your build as the solution but can I exchange the Windows 8 with Windows 7 Instead?

    EDIT:
    Yes I can but I will have to wait for a few more weeks. Can this run DayZ at decent settings?
  8. For sure! Just click 'edit' and then pick a Windows 7 copy instead. Or would you like me to do this? C:
  9. Yes, what I picked can run DayZ at decent settings for sure. :)

    Thanks again!
  11. No worries! Let me know how you go, and PM me if you need any more help at all C:

    Why don't you wait until it's closer to the time when you will be purchasing these parts to ask this question. Remember that prices fall when new model or versions of parts are released; so the best PC built recommended to you now probably won't be the best by the time you are finally ready to buy these parts.

    I've thought about that but I may be buying it sooner than I thought if I save up enough money so I decided to ask now. And I can always upgrade parts later right? So yeah, if I have to wait for longer though I will come back to ask.
  14. Yeah, that's why you should PM me or reply to this thread when you have the money, so I can update the build based on new parts that may come out, or pricing changes. :)

    Let's say you think you will reach the money by next week, then this week or even next week you ask the question.
  16. ^ what...?
    You aren't really making any sense. And please don't quote spam. :)
