So before i get started i just want to tell you all the games i am planning on playing here are a few; H1Z1, BF1, DOOM, The Division, CSGO, League of Legends, Overwatch, Bioshock Infinite, Far cry Primal and some other new games that might come out at high settings or medium. OK now that that is over I am going to go over my parts please remember i have never built a pc this is just all the knowledge i have built up from about a month of research on these parts.
CPU- For my CPU i chose the I5-6400 2.7 GHz mainly becuase it runs cool and it is a good CPU for the price and it apart of skylake which from what i have heard is a great series.
MotherBoard- The Gigabyte GA-H110M Micro ATX. I honestly didn't do much research on this all i know is that it is a 1151 socket so i am able to upgrade to a i5-6600 if i wanted to and it is compatible with my parts and it is cheap.
Memory- Avexir Core Series 8GB. It is DDR4 so it is new and it was cheap and looks ok.
Storage- Wester Digital Caviar Blue 1TB. This was easy all i really need is 1TB and if needed i can just add another Terabyte and it is a very trusted storage unit
Graphics Card- Gigabyte GTX 960 4GB. I am really torn on this one i have done most of my research on the GPU and i really cant decide. People are saying this card is great for 1080P gaming but i see a lot of other great deals such as this GTX 1060 3GB for only $185 on newegg and a lot of others. But this card is cheap, runs cool, and it looks nice. I have also been seeing a lot of talk about the GTX 1050ti and 1050 but i am not to sure yet i saw the Benchmarks but people are still saying it is bad and then other people are saying it is amazing. BTW this is what i need help on the most.
Case- Zalman Z3 Plus White ATX Mid Tower Case. What can i say it has good reviews, good cable manegment, Good airflow and looks super nice.
Power Supply- EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply. All i saw was good reviews on it so i just picked it up and it is pretty cheap right now.
Monitor- Acer UM.WV6AA.B01 21.5" 60Hz Monitor. I saw this on sale for $89.99 so i just picked it up because i had the cash and didn't want the sale to end.
So in the end i really just need help deciding on my CPU and GPU i need something that can run new games and old games at 1080P at medium-high settings or ultra settings. Thank you guys for your time have a good day.
