Build me a 1500$ PC please

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Build me the best gaming computer than you possibly can for a maximum of 1500$, going up to 1600$ is fine but no more than that. (Do not count shipping, power bills or other unnecessary stuff)

 

Bonus: You get a slow clap if you somehow manage to fit a 780ti in there, without slowing it down with the rest of the parts.

 

(EVERYTHING INCLUDED, CASE, PSU, COOLING, ETC)

 

www.pcpartpicker.com is appreciated :D

8 GB of crucial ballistix is fine for RAM. Corsair RAM is overpriced and ue the saved money for SSD

Meh, I like corsair+ 16gb is overkill, but he might need it due to the games needing more ram soon.

I made the 780ti fit... thats why. SSD could be a later upgrade, just my opinion :P <3

Personally I'd throw the ssd in there so OP doesn't have to worry about data transfer and can upgrade to a second drive if needed.

I almost got a 780Ti to fit (3 whole dollars away), but that's with my preferred merchants, not necessarily the cheapest ones.

Like yours best, you get a slow clap from me.  :)  But I really would need an SSD, if you can put in the cheapest one you can find, regardless of speed, as long as it's 120GB minimum, that'd be great.
