I just put together a gaming build that I hope will last me for a while. My goal would be to play Elder Scrolls Online, Far Cry 3, Metro Last light and hopefully the Witcher 3 and Far Cry 4 when they come out on max settings with this build. My current monitor is an old NEC LCD 3090WQXI that does 2560 x 1440, but I'd like to eventually be able to do 3K gaming maybe on that new LG ultra wide monitor. Also one of my main requirements is that the PC runs fairly quiet, my last PC was an Alienware aurora and it was incredibly loud. I am also looking for a recommendation on a case (preferably a mid ATX). I was going to go with an Fractal R4 but it seems that it might be a bit cramped.
This will be my first PC build in ten years so please feel free to comment and provide recommendations.
Thanks in advance,
