This rig will be primarily used for web surfing/ school work, YouTube/Netflix, and occasionally some gaming. Usually stuff like Warframe or D&D Neverwinter but sometimes Skyrim or Borderlands 2. My goal is to be able to use a 29" 2560x1080p monitor at 60 Hz with Freesync to eliminate screen tearing. Here are the builds that I have come up with so far....
Rig 1: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/8K9NgL CPU would be overclocked to 4 GHz and GPU would be overclocked to 1 GHz if possible. Rig 2: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/J6JfFd Same overclocks would be applied.
Question 1: Would these rigs meet my goals? Question 2: How could they be improved while not exceeding a MAXIMUM budget of $800 USD? Question 3: Which would be better? Any other useful advice is appreciated!
