Budget: Max is $800. Willing to go higher if changes performance greatly.
Location: Southern California
Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming mainly. I want to play games like Fallout 4, Skyrim, Company of Heros 2, Star Wars BF, BF4, FPS, on high settings. Will use it for internet browsing and light video/audio editing using Pro Tools, FL Studio, Photoshop, After Effects.
Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Only need the tower and OS. I will be reusing my mouse, keyboard and monitor. The monitor is an LG 1080p LCD TV and i connect via HDMI. Not sure if that will be a problem connecting.
Operating System required: WIndows 10. Not sure if I should just start with 10...
I come from console gaming and Macs. This will be my first build and really hyped to get into it. Received some lists off reddit - r/buildapcforme and experimented with pcpartpicker, but still kind of daunted with so many options. Mainly will use machine for gaming and internet. It would be great to have rendering capabilities, but nothing overkill.
There are other questions like wifi, optical drive and cabling/cables - do I purchases these things separately? I found a few instructive guides online, youtube, the build guides section isn't showing any here for some reason. only can see the featured build guides on pcpartpicker home page. Anyway thanks for any input in advance.
