Hey, I have never built a computer before but I am tired of getting store bought computers that need tweaking and such. So I would like to put an end to that by building a computer that can support what i want. I am looking to build a gaming computer for around $1000-$1200 that can run games such as Swtor, D3 and GW2 on Med if not High settings with ease. I am a complete newcomer to putting a comp together and what would be best to spend money on and what I really wouldn't need. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
If you want, you can add an SSD to decrease load times a bit. However, you'll need to downgrade the GPU a bit in order to make the budget. If you want top notch performance, just get the build I suggested above. You can add the SSD later once you obtain the cash. Hope this helps; good luck!
