My wife is returning from deployment in roughly two months and I'm looking to set up a sweet build for us to game together. She doesn't need the same horsepower that I need for audio production and editing, but here's a run down of what I'm looking at getting her. (Sorry, I'm on my phone)
I5 4690 (Locked) Asus H97 Plus Mini ITX Mobo G Skill 1600mhz 8GB Ram Crucial MX100 256 GB SSD Seagate Barracuda 1 TB EVGA Superclocked GTX 970 Cooler Master 130 Mini ITX case
I have a couple other parts that I'm going to put on it, but I just wanted to get an opinion on the core setup. Trying to stay in the area of $1000-$1200. She has no clue how to overclock and doesn't really need expansion room. This will be 90% pure gaming and 10% Web stuff. I just want to build her a really sweet powerful machine that'll handle anything she wants to play.
What do you guys think?
