I'm currently gaming/being held hostage by a 2009 MBP and its obviously not cutting the cake for me. Needless to say I'm ready to make an upgrade. I am a little nervous about building my own system but feel with the help from this community I can accomplish the build. Lets get down to the nitty gritty shall we?
Desktop uses are gaming (Diablo3/War Thunder/Star Wars BF/etc.), musical recording, possible streaming. Will not be overclocking.
Parts I'm currently looking at: - 120/256Gb SSD & 1Tb HDD - i5 4460 - 16GB Ram (I know this may be overkill, but depending on the $$ may be worth it rather than 8Gb) - Gtx (960/970/980) 4Gb? - Monitor - any other parts I know very little about
I may be asking for parts that are unreasonable for my price point, but just don't want to have to upgrade in 2 years. Please give me your thoughts and keep the builds as close to $1,000 as you can +-$100.
