I play a lot of video games on my laptop and have become increasing annoyed with how bad things seem to run on it. I got permission to build my own computer with a budget of around $1000 (less would be fantastic).
Here are the pieces I am thinking of purchasing. I know that I don't have a case, I need some suggestions for a good one, hopefully not too expensive. Also, if there are any downgrades I could make that would make the computer cheaper but wouldn't lower the quality of my computer, I'd love any suggestions.
