I am in the market for a new PC and want to get one built with a budget of approx. ~$1000, give or take $100-200.
I have no experience with building PCs at all so I hope some of you gurus can help me!
The primary uses for it will be for gaming and image/video editing. That being said I'm looking for a balanced PC (keeping bottlenecks in mind) ideally with a graphics card that is capable of running high-end games (such as Rift, Skyrim, etc.) with little difficulty. I am also not afraid of OC'ing within reason - will make me a sad panda if OC kills the hardware.\
Also looking to go for a SSD instead of a hard drive, not looking to have massive amounts of storage.
One last thing, I will be getting this to replace my 2010 21" iMac for gaming which is spec'd at:
- i5 CPU 3.60GHz
- 8GB RAM
- Radeon 5730m 256mb(?)
I hope that this is a possible endeavor and I thank you all in advance!
Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as possible
Budget Range: ~$1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Image Editing, Video Editing, Browsing
