Help me build a gaming PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I would like to build a gaming PC. I've been doing a lot of research on how to build a gaming PC. Let me tell you guys what I am looking for.

I want to use this case: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Carbide-SPEC-01-Gaming-CC-9011050-WW/dp/B00I6BJATW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1445081572&sr=8-1&keywords=gaming+case

 

I'd prefer a CPU by Intel and would like to use just the stock heatsink. Also I want to use a GTX 970 graphics card. I don't plan to do any high end gaming. I just want to play League of Legends, World of Warcraft, and a few other games at 1080p with 60fps+ at max settings. If anyone knows a better graphics card for around the same price, that'd be great. As for the memory and ram I want to use a 1TB hard drive and 16gb of ram, so if anyone could recommend me on what to get that'd be super helpful. 

 

PS: Price range at $1500 max.

 

If anyone can help me out or has any other questions to ask me I'll answer as best as I can, thanks.

If he's only playing LoL and WoW a GTX 950 and a i3 would do that fine at 1080p

It would be, but I was showing him that half of his budget could make what he wanted.
