New $1500 gaming rig
Hi guys just looking to build a pc for around 1500 or less. Been out of the game for sometime now and want it to be created for the best games and I would like it to be good for yrs to come. Can you recommend a build for me including each part starting with a sweet mid sized tower. Thank you in advance.
here you go
will overclock and do crossfire. also, the motherboard comes with free ram so yeah
Here you go, this turned out to be pretty much TheBigTroll's build but with some of my own suggestions.

I don't think 128GB is enough space. and there is room in the budget for more, a data drive could be added for $85, like
or a much larger ssd drive for $270 more like

for a single monitor 1080p gaming you'll only need to splurge out around $1100 to make some decent playing time... i would go for larger ssd as 128gb ain't gonna cut it.. i don't think you'll ever need 2 cards to play at this resolution... i know some will say this psu is overkill for one card... but why bother when you can get more wattage for less.... unlike graphics card... you'll mostly change your psu after it's dead..
