    Nah, I don't need anything ridiculously crazy like that as I won't be using it for graphic design or video editing or anything like that. Something a little more mainstream I think would do fine. Have any monitor suggestions? Again, don't need top of the line.

    What's the quality difference between 1080p and 1440p? If I were to get a 1080p, any suggestions?

    What PSU would you recommend then?

    Is there a reason you didn't include fans? Does the case already come with one? Also, any monitor suggestions?

    What's the difference between the case and power supply you suggested versus the one I initially had?

    While it does fit my budget, I'd rather not spend an extra $300 hundred to get the 1080ti. I think I will switch to the 1070ti though. Also, why did you not include any fans for the build, and any suggestions for a monitor? I don't need anything crazy over the top, just something that'll work well and for a while.
  11. Hey, 1. Budget & Location My budget is between $1000 - $1500, but I plan on buying everything during Black Friday/Cyber Monday so there is a bit of flexibility. I am in southern California. 2. Aim This PC will be primarily for gaming. I will, however use it for high school work, but I'm not taking any graphics design classes or anything like that so I don't think this is of much consequence. I'll also use it for web browsing, but nothing along the lines of video editing or streaming. I will be using it to play games such as Civilization VI, Starcraft 2, Heroes of the Storm, TES, Shadow of War, XCom, and of course to play any future games of interest. Also, I don't need anything flashy, so RGB and anything like that is unnecessary for me. 3. Monitors I plan on using 1 monitor, with no intentions of using more in the future. I currently have a 1080p 60hz, but highly doubt that will be substantial. That being said, I have no idea what monitor is recommend for what I have. 4. Peripherals I do not need a mouse or keyboard, but I might need a monitor and OS. 5. Why are you upgrading? My current PC is exceptionally old and the replacements and repairs needed to make it functional again would be too inconvenient and expensive. With all that being said, here is a list of the parts I have found. For some reason, I couldn't find this particular CPU on PCPartPicker so I included it separately. It says it comes with a cooler, but I'm not sure if I'll need a different one. Furthermore, I'm not sure if the fans I have are sufficient or if anything I have will cause serious bottlenecking. I don't know if I need anything else or if I should replace something.
