Posted · Original PosterOP

Doing a new build for single 2.5k panel gaming, could use your guys input on builds. I Currently own the monitor already so do not include that into the price.

 

1. Budget & Location
   Budget: $2300

   Location: Canada

2. Aim
    100% Gaming and nothing else

    Edit: Would like to be able to play at 60 fps at 2.5k.

3. Monitors
    Currently single 2.5K Panel (OWNED)

4. Peripherals

    I DONT NEED ANY (ALREADY OWNED)

 

    THE 2300 IS JUST FOR A BUILD. OS IS NOT REQUIRED.

WD reds are really for NAS/Server use. Not really the ideal HDD for desktop use.

+1 

 

Could save a couple bucks with 1600 ram and air cooling. But yeah, +1....

 

R4 +100i usually fits fine, but it's sometimes a tight fit, just look it up first.
