I have a budget of about $1,300 with a little bit of leeway.
I'm located in New York about an hour and a half north of NYC.
I want to use the PC for gaming, streaming, and I'd like to be able to do 4k.
I only require a monitor currently and was debating getting a cheaper one for the time being then upgrade to a better one and then use the old one as my second monitor.
I do also require an OS and was going to go with Windows 10 although I may be able to obtain a copy for free through a friend.
I was having trouble deciding on either Intel or AMD, NVidia or ATI, Crossfire or SLI, and a few motherboards: MSI Z97-GAMING 5 ATX LGA1150 / Asus X99-AUSB 3.1 ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard / Asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard / Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
I have created a few saved parts lists for a full system if you'd like I can post them for some feedback and to give an idea of what I was thinking.
All help and feedback is appreciated and thank you in advanced!
