Update on First PC build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Trying to build first gaming/all-around PC
I'll be able to buy this PC on Friday July 19th and I want to make it the best build possible for all around use especially gaming and light business work. Right now I have an old 2011 E-Machines PC lol.

UPDATE:

Ok so I'm able to buy the PC TODAY, since today is prime day I was wondering if there were any builds that would have more power while being less expensive for the price. My budget is still $1500 and I was wondering if there were any builds that could get me a deal on ultra-wide monitors or anything lol. 

PC Builds
- Budget: $1500
- Zip Code or Location: Riverview, Fl
- Specific Use: Gaming/Business, maybe light video editing
- Any preferred components?: I like Intel over AMD but if I can get more performance for cost from AMD then I'm fine with it
- Any spare parts you can re-use?: Nope T-T
- Overclocking your processor?: Yes
- Need an Operating System?: Windows 10
- Need a Monitor? / Mouse? / Keyboard?: I'll be using a regular 1080p monitor for now but in the future I would like to use two 1440p 144hz monitors
- Need a Wireless Card or Adapter? I would to have wireless capabilities but it's definitely not needed
- Need Another Component? (Specify): I know this is kind of abstract but a quality sound component is wanted but not needed

Other Useful Info

- Preferred Case Features (Ex: Color, Side Window, Flashy): Doesn't need to be too flashy but a side window would be awesome and if possible RGB (heh)
- Number of Monitors: 1 for now but I would like the ability to use 2
- Other Info?: The games I'll be playing shouldn't be too graphics hungry like Minecraft and such. Video editing is a little important to what I want to use this PC for. It's mainly a business computer that I'll be gaming on occasionally, so an all around build is kinda what I'm going for.

- Side Note: This will be my first build so please tell me if anything is confusing or feel free to ask me any questions or tell me anything I might need to know. If you need any more specifics just ask :P

It's helpful to know what has been suggested before.

 

I'd still recommend the one you ended up with and hope things are on sale.  Performance is still more important than saving a few bucks if a slower CPU/GPU is on sale a bit, IMO.

Yeah ik what you mean, I think I'll just tweak one of the builds and then see if it's good
