Let me start by identifying my uses for the computer. I primarily play EVE (for those who know what it is) which is fairly non-demanding, and i am able to run it at full settings on my laptop now. I would like to be able to run two, three, or four game clients at once, without too much strain on the computer (laptop can do two, but it runs really hot with a cooling pad - not ideal for its lifespan). Beyond that I do standard internet junk, Netflix etc. I have a build in mind, and another with slightly upgraded components, but it is just past my ideal price range. Ideally I would like to keep it under 900. I'm also a sucker for appearance, so that factored in some (eg the fans - fan controller is to shut them up for things like netflix). Anyway, here is the cheaper build:
and here is the pricier one:
My main questions are whether the upgrades are worth it for what I need (I have heard not, I don't plan to OC). A note on the keyboard - I don't really care about what keyboard I get, I'm just including one that looks okay so the final price represents the whole build, as I want something cheap, functional, and backlit blue.
