Hello! I would appreciate some help building my first gaming PC.
Budget I would like to keep it under 500, but can stretch it to 550 if needed.
Location I'm in the U.S
*Use I would use it for school (paper,research,etc), Web browsing, youtube, Netflix, hulu, and gaming ( most likely CoD, minecraft, Battlefront).
Peripherals I'd have to get a monitor, keyboard, and mouse but that wouldn't be included in the budget. Keyboard and mouse I can get pretty cheap, but the monitor I'd have to find on sale. Any suggestions for a monitor would be nice as well.
OS I would need an OS but again not included in the budget. I don't really want a disk drive in the build, as I would never use it. Is there a way to get the OS on a flash drive?
Preferences I'd prefer an Intel based build, but if AMD has more bang for my buck, then that is cool as well. I'm not big on graphics or anything like that either. I'd like for there to be a way to upgrade this in the future. For now I just want to a nice basic start into PC gaming. Also I don't have a wired connection in my room at the moment, so would this need a wireless adapter until I can get the router and stuff connected?
Any help for this would be greatly appreciated. Im not super knowledgeable about computer components but I'm learning. I plan to start ordering parts soon, and want to make sure I'm not making any major mistakes. Thanks eveyone!
