This is what I have so far. Kind of on a budget so I was wondering what you thought about this set up and if I could make it better for cheaper or what not.
I will be playing games like battlefield etc. I don't really need it to be the best of the best but I want it to handle games with ease.
Please give me suggestions on what I should change (if anything)

thank you!

Also, if someone could recommend a monitor, keyboard, and mouse that would be great!
