My budget is anywhere between 1200 to 2000. If I can keep costs down while hitting my performance needs that will be pretty helpful. Also, this will be my first time building a computer. I'm pretty nervous lol.
First of all I need to have an i7 even though an i5 will currently suit my needs because I may in the near future start working on stuff that requires more power and I don't want to be tied down by an i5. In other words, it is future proofing.
Second of all, I want my computer to run most games at 1080p 60 fps and be able to easily upgrade parts to keep it that way for years to come. Heck, I may want to upgrade to 4k in the future, but maybe by the time that comes there will be more single graphics cards that will be able to handle that. I'm not in a rush to go 4k after all. Having a computer that can run things magnificently at 1080p is my main concern at this time.
Third of all, I may not want to overclock at all, but I always want the option to do so. I could be convinced otherwise if it is not worth it.
Once again here is my build option: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/VtwdxY
What do you guys recommend or is it pretty good already. What can I do to shave costs off while keeping the performance?
