$800-$900 Build

Hey guys, I'm a first-time builder, looking for a build around $800 for my first desktop. I don't need it anytime soon, not until closer to the end of the year. I would like to be able to run all current games on ultra, as well as games to come out in the future. The majority of this computer's use will be for gaming, not much else. I have absolutely nothing, no Windows, no monitor, nothing. I would prefer a multiple monitor setup as well, 1080p. Keep in mind I don't have a ton of knowledge, I know the basics, but not much more. Finally, I would prefer to buy from Newegg, if possible. Thanks!

  1. 1. For $800-900 you won't be able to run all games on Ultra settings, possibly medium-high.
    2. Since you need windows and a monitor that's a minimum of $160, so that's a huge chunk out of your budget.
  2. It's ok,I can live with medium.

  4. Thank you, that puts alot into perspective for me, I will probably wait until i can rustle up some more money before attempting a build.
  5. The build I put up will play most games at high-ultra on 1920X1080. However, if you wait, you could get an i5 with a 670, which will destroy games on ultra settings. :D
  6. Awesome, I'll go for that, and maybe attempt to learn Linux as to not waste money on Windows.
