Additional Comments: i guess it would be more of a workstation but im only 18 and still in high school. Would love an excellent price and please i would appreciate all of this, would love to game and mod games. im also learning photoshop in school and would like to start djing and making my own electronic music (trance, techno, house, dubstep, etc). and video editing for my little brother, if he doesn't want a real job, then maybe i can get him to do something he likes for a living.So please if you can, please help. Thank you.

  1. You really do need a budget. We could build you a beast for $3000 or something that'd barely scrape by for $500, or anything in between. To max the most demanding current games (60fps at the highest settings in Metro 2033, Crysis 2 and maybe BF3) you'd have to spend around $1700 or $2000, or more with peripherals, on a 580 SLI build. To get quite good FPS on quite high settings in those, and to max many less-demanding games, you could spend $900 or so on a single 570 build. Do you need a monitor, keyboard or mouse?
  2. ok.
    well uhm budget would be $ 1000 and up. need all parts (monitor, motherboard, mouse, PSU) basically starting from a blank slate. Would like to be able to upgrade whenever i can ( a motherboard that's powerful yet can be upgraded for several years to come, and anything else that can be upgraded). Would like to start off as primarily a gaming rig and have the capability to use FL Studios to start on my music making skills right away. Please include a very good video card for the price. Thank you
  3. This post is a work in progress. I'll finish it over the next couple of hours.

    Hm. The issue is the peripherals. You can spend any sort of money on those. All prices after rebates:
    $205 monitor, Asus VE248H 24" LED

    $35 mouse, Logitech G400

    $220 CPU, 2500K. Do you have access to a Microcenter? They're selling it for $180.

    $115 mobo, ASRock Z68 Extreme3
