Hello,

I am currently trying to build my own pc for the first time and was hoping to see if this is a decent setup for gaming/get an evaluation of it. Thanks!

EDIT: I apologize for not reading the first thread on how to create a New Build Thread earlier- hopefully this is more satisfying.

Approximate Purchase Date: this weekend

Budget Range: 800-1100

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and Student Work then everything else

Parts Not Required: None, buying everything from scratch

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country: US

Parts Preferences: Intel preferably

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 I believe

Additional Comments: None really, just hoping to hear back from an intelligent community of pc builders more skilled and knowledgeable than I.


Here is a list of all of the parts I am currently looking at:
