Are you buying a monitor: No I already have a benq gaming monitor


Parts to Upgrade: everything

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Location: Exeter, New Hampshire 03833
Parts Preferences: I would like an intel computer with air cooling, no liquid cooling and good airflow

Overclocking: Maybe if I learn more about it (tips would be helpful)

Additional Comments: I would really like a silent computer that runs fast, I do like LED's but they are not needed.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I don't have a desktop and it is hard to do gaming on my laptop. I would really like this computer to last me through college and I am a freshman in high school. I have done some research about building computers and know a little but I am not a star.

  1. would an i5 cpu be enough? and I would like to get 16 gb or ram
  2. -i5s are for games. i7s are for work
    -8gb of ram is more than enough for gaming systems. unless you are running VMs or video editing, its not necessary
  3. would it still be fine for graphic design work?
