Gaming PC Build Challenge (Monitor Included)

Hello All,

Firstly, let me say thank you for anyone who takes a shot at this.

Here are my specifications:

Budget: $1600

Location: USA

Use: Gaming (High or Ultra Settings if Possible with high frames per second)

  • Witcher 2 and 3

  • GTA 5

  • Titanfall

  • Heroes of the Storm

  • Wolfenstein

  • Guild Wars 2

Peripherals: Monitor only. No speakers, mice, keyboard, etc.

Operating System Req.: Win 10 (See Below).

Additional Notes: I already own a 250 GB Crucial SSD which I will integrate into this build, but please include some kind of HDD storage in the build. Also, to save costs, I've decided (for now) that the OS is unnecessary. I probably have a copy of Win7 and Enterprise Office Suite lying around.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if this is even possible. Everything else (as far as I know) is up to the designers.

Thank you for everyones time!
