I have been a laptop gamer for a while now and I have been making do with a laptop that was acceptable back in 2012. So by today's standards the old girl is kinda outdated. I have bought a few parts and salvaged other parts to build my wife an OK gaming rig, which performs better than my laptop.
I have never assembled a computer on my own before since I usually take the parts over to a friends house and have him deal with it. This time I want to go hands on with this project. I have put together a part list that I am happy with, but I would welcome any input. I am on a budget right now (I am willing to spend between $700 and $850) so I am not buying all the parts at once. The parts I am unsure about are the CPU and motherboard (not sure if they are a good choice).
Thank you for your help in advance.
