Hello, I been looking into building my first ever rig for a while now, I'm a big gamer and it's frustrating not being able to play the games I own at anything besides low settings.

I'm looking into getting a rig of around 500-800$, the cheaper the better of course.

I prefer Nvidia cards and don't need to be any fancy 4k gaming. 1080p will be just fine. No Hard drive is required since I'd like to just transfer my current ones. (2 of them)

It will be used mainly for games but I tend to multitask a lot, especially on google chrome. If the possibility of dual monitors is available that'd be even better.

I reside in Florida, the cheaper the better!

Thank you in advance.

Thank you very much for the builds, the AMD one looks really good from both price and performance range! So definitely going to build it!
