I want this for gaming and that's what I am looking to build right now my budget really is a little above 1,000 dollars but I would love to keep it lower.
I play GW2, Skyrim, and WoW. I'm not too nuts about maxing everything out but I like things to look pretty and run smoothly at the same time
This will basically be for gaming only. I really don't multitask and I stop most things from running on my computer when I game except for my antivirus. Not really into storing tons of music and movies, I occasionally stream Netflix. Not a hardcore gamer either, I play really on the weekends and briefly during the week if I have time. This is just an upgrade from my Alienware Area-51 m15x. (I am pretty sure anything is better than this lump of crap they called a laptop) This is also my first time building a computer so I am nervous about messing up on expensive components.
PC Part picker tells me everything is compatible but I was wondering if I should make any changes to get a better bang for my buck or even perhaps switch to Intel. Any input or changes are greatly appreciated, and thank you for looking it over in advance.
