My laptop died and I thought that I would build a computer instead of buying a new laptop. I had a previous post helping me put together and learn about parts but i made some changes. I had a budget of 1500 but still needed to buy a Keyboard, Mouse, and Monitor. All suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Forgot To mention that I wanted to buy some fans and did not know how many or what type I would need for the case I picked
  3. I think i might go for this because i was intending to cut back a little in order to buy monitors and peripherals and if this can run games smooth then I think I will take it. Unless there are any other suggestions, I would still appreciate it. Also, Is there an in depth tutorial on how to build it. I have watched Linus but I got a little confused with some parts. Thanks again.
  4. What is the benefit of buying the i7-6700k over the i5-6600k?
  5. I do want to use a water cooler for the CPU but I am fine with using a fan. As for the monitor somewhere under 100 would be nice. Ill check out newegg.

It based it off of one of the build guides I saw on pcpartpicker
  6. I will check it out and post a list If i can handle AAA games i would most likely switch over to a pc gamer (Buying latest games on PC instead of console). Is 1440x900 a good resolution. The only other tasks would be watching streams, videos, and just browsing the web. I do not plan on recording or editing any videos nor do I plan on streaming.
  7. I was planning on building my first gaming computer instead of buying a gaming laptop from best-buy. I do not plan on spending much more than $1,500 (U.S.) and i did not know where i should start. Gaming wise, I was not planning on playing AAA games. I was not planning on putting peripherals in my budget and was thinking of getting some cheap monitors, 2 eventually. I have been looking at tutorials, and i know that the components have to be compatible. I do not know much about the statistics of parts and was hoping you guys would give some suggestions.
