First Gaming PC Build (Budget: $1500-$1750)

JHS6-EAGLE
  • 71 months ago

Wanting to know if this will be a good setup for a gaming pc. My goal is to get the best graphics I can with the budget I have. (I didn't include the monitor, keyboard, etc.) Any suggestions of better graphics cards, motherboards, etc. for the price would be greatly appreciated. Also if I'm leaving anything important out of the build let me know. Thanks!

Question on this build for my education.

Can a dual r9 290 work with a mid atx case size with any supplied case fans?
