~$1000.00 Gaming PC Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,

 

In the upcoming month or so I am planning to build a new gaming pc and was wondering if some people can help me put together a build. I will be strictly doing 1080P (or maybe even higher if it is within my budget) gaming on it and my budget is around ~$1000.00 USD (I live in the USA). 

 

I want to go intel/nvidia as I have learned the hard away about AMD CPU's and gaming. Please only keep it an intel/nvidia build as I don't plan to go AMD and if possible and within budget, I would like an i7 as my CPU..

 

Furthermore, if possible, I would also like to see a build with a monitor included and one without to see what components I will miss out on if I do decide to get a monitor (my current one is a crappy 60hz and I am always forced to use vsync otherwise I get bad screen tears).

 

Thank you very much!

You don't want AMD CPUs, but I guess you're fine with AMD GPUs (you should be).

That being said, this is the best bang for the buck build you can get for 1080P maxed out gaming.

The problem is that this is an nVidia product and scoring any nVidia product a "zero" is also highly predictive of the number of nVidia products the reviewer will receive for review in the future.

Only yours, you don't shitpost on the same level that we can, mainly because this thread is finally dead and should be locked.

I wasn't wrong. It's extremely rare that I am. I provided sources as well. Different devs can disagree. Further, we now have confirmed discrepancy from Twitter about he use of the pre-release 1080 driver in AMD's demo despite the release 1080 driver having been out a week prior.

You apparently haven't seen his responses to questions on YouTube. He is very condescending and aggressive in his comments with which there is little justification. He acts totally different in his videos. I don't necessarily care for this content style and there is nothing really unique about him or his channel. His endless dick jokes and toilet humor are annoying as well.
