Hey there, everyone. Thanks in advance for any help or comments.
I have some experience with assembling my own computers and such in the past but I have not kept up on parts specs for several years and could use some comprehensive opinions.
I plan to use this comp entirely for gaming and a dash of internet browsing in between. That's basically it. The games I intend to play (and mod where applicable) are:
Any Elder Scrolls from Morrowind and up. Want to be able to play VI when available and mod.
Any Fallout from 3 and up. Want to be able to play 4 and mod it once the community gets going.
League of Legends. I don't need perfect performance because I'm not an aspiring pro. Just want it to run reliably without performance spikes.
Various light games including Minecraft and Terraria. <Not the focus, just detail.
The budget is where I would prefer to keep this but if I'll gain some strong advantage by going up that justifies the deviation I'm all ears.
I would prefer to have this rig running well for a least a few years as I'm not exactly wealthy.
Thanks in advance (again) for any help and let me know if you need any more details.
