Alright so this is my first PC build ever. Little nervous about it, but I had many people suggest that i make a post on these forums to get some helpful advice.
For a run down- I'm looking to get a PC that runs games medium-high settings (even higher if that's possible with my current budget) and has decent processing power to handle dual monitor usage. I'd like to have a game in one screen, and maybe have Skype+Chrome+Other basic tasks for general multitasking. I also use a music DAW that's high CPU intensive on some of the vst platforms, so having a good CPU to support this would be a big bonus for me. I currently use a smaller TV monitor as my current display(i'm using a laptop to power everything, so not really in my favor right now) as well as i have external keyboard and mouse already available to use.
I would like to at-least run games like Fallout, Arma/DayZ, Battlefront, and other miscellaneous titles while locking into a decent frame rate, and not have a lot of instability, even if that's the cost of some graphical detail.
This computer will be used via wireless connection as apposed to ethernet, so I don't know if most motherboards come with internal wireless NIC or if i need to add that to the current pricing. I'm willing to go upwards of 750$ for this build if extra pieces like that are needed into the equation.
I will probably need a cheap optical drive and potentially a version of windows if I can't get a hold of someone in that regards, so again i can push this upwards of around 750$ for any extra material needed.
I understand i'm asking a lot out of this build and really pushing limits, but I'm also open to any Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals on any parts. I have 500$ allocated to this fund right now as i'm still trying to save for the rest of it. If i can save some money by picking up a few parts early and waiting till i can afford the rest, i will gladly do that.
a pre-thank you already for anyone who looks into this and would like to help me out!
