Help me build a gaming PC Part 2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok so a few days ago I asked the community for help on building my first gaming PC. I would like to get more complete builds.

Again this is the case I would like to use: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Carbide-SPEC-01-Gaming-CC-9011050-WW/dp/B00I6BJATW/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1445196721&sr=1-1&keywords=CORSAIR+CASE


Now I would like to run my games at 1080p with 60fps at max settings. The games I play aren't to demanding. Examples are League of Legends and World of Warcraft. I would definitely love to play WoW on ultra with a consistent 60fps+. I prefer a CPU by Intel and plan to use the stock heatsink. I do not want to overclock. Also my plan was to use a GTX 970, but if my demands aren't possible with a GTX 970 could anyone recommend a better GPU for around the same price or one that is slightly more expensive? My original budget was $1500, but I've decided to cut it at $2000 max. For storage I prefer 16gb of RAM and a 1TB Hard Drive. Also a 250gb SSD that's good quality. Also if anyone can recommend a good monitor I would be extremely grateful(this doesn't count towards the budget).

390 > 970


RAM isn't storage, it's memory, 16GB is too much for JUST gaming.
