Hi,

I am super new to PC building, (you could call me a SUPER noob). I need a good gaming PC anywhere between 800-1200 CAD, (cheaper builds would be preferred, I am willing to stretch the budget to 1200 MAX). I made a $1150 PC build, not sure if it is any good but I will drop the link here, http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/JBDB8d. I will be really grateful if anyone can make me a good build or improve upon my current one.

Peripherals needed in the build. -Monitor -Keyboard -Mouse -Speakers -Wifi Adapter -Optical Drive

Thanks, Hype

Here is a build for you to consider. I went with a single stick of 8GB ram so that you can get 1 more down the road when 16GB of ram becomes the standard for gaming, for now 8GB is plenty. The R9 380 with 4GB VRAM is an excellent video card and beats the GTX 960 most benchmarks. This build has an SSD for your OS for fast boot up also room for a few other must run fast programs and a 1TB hard drive for basic storage. The bit fenix case is just the best deal and a gorgeous case. Also you can get it in many different colors this site only shows that color for the window version. here is a direct link so you can choose the color combo you like best. http://www.directcanada.com/category/?minorcatid=1517&pricerangeid=1003&vendorid=3123

The rest of the stuff speaks for itself. Hope this helps in making a final choice for your PC parts. All the best with your build.
