A friend of mine asked for help with picking out parts for his new machine. A complete parts list for a suggested build would be much appreciated.
Approximate Purchase Date: 24 July 2013~24 august if prices will go down...
Budget Range: 700 after rebates.
System Usage from Most to Least Important:Gaming, recording and livestreaming, surfing the web. Some RAM intensive games like Minecraft, but mostly MMOs, League of Legends and shooters. It would be nice to see this computer to survive well into 2015 or 2016 and still maintain "High," "Very High," or "Ultra" settings on most titles. With this in mind, having a rig with upgrading potential would be good.
Are you buying a monitor: No
Parts to Upgrade: This is a brand new machine.
Do you need to buy OS: yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg and Amazon are the most common but i am willing to buy from anywere reputable in the U.S
Location:Miami Florida, USA
Parts Preferences: Intel and NVidia fanboy, all the way. A first class PSU manufacturer is a MUST. What i mean is a brand with reputable PSU maybe something semi-modular would be nice? I know this is a lot for this budget but something that will last a couple of builds.
SLI or Crossfire: This isn't happening in the initial build. Don't mind having the possibility for future upgrades, though.
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 - Wont be doing more than 1 monitor
Additional Comments: I'm on Skype with this friend constantly while gaming. His current setup is LOUD. Ear relief would be pleasant, but not at the expense of anything else. This machine will need a wireless network card at least initially - the router is on the other side of a small home.
His current gaming machine is an old HP laptop. It's performed an admirable job for the last half a decade, but it can't keep up with new releases anymore. It struggles even with games like League of Legends at higher settings.
You guys are the best of the best at these requests. Thank you for your time in helping us out!
