$3500 Gaming/Streaming/Video Editing beast! Need help!

SpencerCorliss
  • 72 months ago

I've decided to build myself a new computer, as the one I have now, is getting outdated, and it'll be fun again to build myself another computer. My budget is $3500, and I need help building it. I will be using this computer for gaming, streaming on Twitch.tv, and video editing. Heres what I would like in the computer.

Approximate Purchase Date: This week or next

Budget Range: $3500 With tax and rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Streaming, Video editing are the main uses.

Are you buying a monitor: When it releases, I will have it covered. DONT include it in the budget!!!

Parts to Upgrade: Everything

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Anything in the US

Location: Worcester, Massachusetts, U.S.A

Parts Preferences: I don't really like AMD (I will be using a G-SYNC Monitor so Nvidia is a must really)

Overclocking: Yes, I would like to overclock CPU VERY HIGH

SLI or Crossfire: If needed

Your Monitor Resolution: 2560x1440 w/ G-SYNC

Additional Comments: I want to max games like Skyrim, Battlefield, and pretty much every game you throw at it at 1440p. I would also like to record/stream gameplay in HD, as well as record/stream gameplay without any frame rate issues and such. A lot of storage space is needed for videos and so on. Just make it the best gaming @ 1440p / streaming / video editing computer you can.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Computer now is old, and I would like to build myself another computer again.
