Approximate Purchase Date: I am willing to shop around, but hoping to start ordering parts tonight or in the next week.
Budget Range: (Willing to spend around 950, if less that's perfectly OK.)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming/streaming while I play. I'd also use my rig to watch movies on the flat screen
Currently I mainly play League of Legends (Which doesn't have the highest game req's I know), but I would like the ability to play more graphically intense games.
Are you buying a monitor: No, I just picked up two Acer P236h bd. So would need the system to be able to handle dual 1920 x 1080 23" monitors 5ms 100-240v 50/60ghz 1.5a.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes (I run win 7 home on my laptop and I like i quite a bit...How ever I would be willing to try windows 8. I would just need a little push! I'm open to the concept, but learning a new OS that appears to be for a tablet/phone doesn't seem ideal)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I'm honestly open to any reputable source. I do have amazon prime.
Location: Brooklyn, NY U.S.A
Parts Preferences: I don't have a solid preference, but i was leaning towards Intel/Nvidia
Overclocking: Maybe. I am too unfamiliar with the process to overclock anything right now. But I would do a bit of research down the road.
SLI or Crossfire: I don't know much about this. I don't know that I NEED two graphics cards right now or in the near future. I would be open to suggestion.
Additional Comments: The last time I built a PC windows XP had just came out. I have watched a few tutorials now and been lurking on this site the last day or so. I was enjoying the BestConfigs: Budget Intel-Based Gaming PC thread, but didn't want to buy one of those systems on the off chance the poster was really not that informed!
Hi im going to build you two PC's.The first one is purely for gaming while the second one will have an SSD which means faster loading times and better responsiveness.They are both great builds and im sure you'll be proud to own one.
As for me, i did not include it, because CPU in my list is not made for overclocking, so it doesn't need aftermarket cooler. Don't be afraid though, it's still slightly overclockable, but with that kind of load box cooler will do(the one that comes with cpu)
