Good day everyone! My name is Mike and I am looking to build a new pc!
I am looking for a rig in the price range of $800 - $1100

The rig will mainly be used for gaming, photo editting email, web browsing, maybe photoshop, music.

Setting for gams I would try to shoot for..

Crysis 3: High/Medium
Simcity: Ultra/High
GTA 4: Ultra/High

I do realize I am asking for a lot on such a small budget. If it can't hit those marks then I would love the next best thing and a rig that I can grow into.


Oh ya I have a 1080p Monitor & Logitech Anywhere Mouse
I would need a keyboard.


Thanks so much for your help guys/gals!!

Best solution

sorry a little bit over budget :p  super gaming comp :D 


you could make this build cheaper...

take away the SSD, drop the vid card to 660ti and still be able to play games on pretty much max graphics
(other cuts could be made as well if NOT overclocking, such as mobo. Powersupply could be swapped for a cheaper one ;)  what are you happy with? :D )

It's not crazy over budget so that is fine. My only question is why is everything from Canada?
