I am looking or a mid-range desktop to play games like civ5 on high. I have heard building a computer is cheaper then buying one, so I thought I would take the route. Would like it to be upgradeable in the future. I already picked some parts but don't know if I could do with less or if I need more. What do you guys think?
Approximate Purchase Date: around a month
Budget Range: less then $1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, video editing, some coding, internet
Are you buying a monitor: yes
Do you need to buy OS: Yes, what is the difference between oem and the regular version of win7
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, amazon.com
Location: Midwest USA
Overclocking: maybe in the future
SLI or Crossfire: maybe in the future
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I have a 2 year laptop but it is not cutting it anymore for my gaming.
