Hello PPP community,
I've recently gathered the will to build my own gaming computer, I've just started college on becoming a electrical engineer, so I argued with the lady, that building a computer would be instrumental to the field I desire to be in and got the O.K. Even tho I was wanting to build one regardless as I have been gaming on console's the past 15+ years. The only real PC gaming experience I ever had was when I begged my grandmother to upgrade her old Dell so I could play Oblivion on min specs. Enough with the life story, my budget is sitting around $2000 +/- $200 so I have some wiggle room with this, I'm not super satisfied with my selection; and am asking your opinion on everything, case, monitor, keyboard, graphics card etc.... I was originally going with a GTX 1080 and the Phanteks evolv atx, but had to cut costs to stay around my budget, and I'm still over.
Al so I'm getting a compatibility error, this error has been flagged on my last few MB selections.
