Looking to make a new computer

Sterben4

Not to sure about a budget yet, got about $2000 ti spend would prefer to stay about $1500. I'm in Calgary AB Canada. Looking to run new games at reasonable frame rate (~60 fps) and high settings. I don't have any spare parts but already have all the peripherals I need. I'll need to run a couple of monitors, one is 3440*1440 34" the other is 1080 27". A wireless card is preferable but not required, I'll probably run Windows 10 cause lots of software I use won't run on anything else acceptably. The case ideally should be something that can sit sideways and is less than 11" tall. This machine is mostly just a stopgap measure as my laptop (a MSI GT72 Dominator G) can only just run newer games, I'll probably build a proper system in 2 or three years. I need access to a HDMI port and some type of Displayport - ideally a mini Displayport- for my monitors. I haven't kept up to date on stuff for the past ~5 years or so, as such If this just isn't feasible lets talk recommendations for alternate choices.

I would build something like this (prices are in CAD):

 

It is a small ITX case (same one that I use), but it can sit sideways no problem and doesn't occupy much space. Maybe consider buying 2x 120mm case fans to put beneath the GPU.


This PC would last you more than 2-3 years.

I usually edit my posts immediately after posting them, as I don't check for typos before pressing the shiny SUBMIT button.

The list prices are US but I converted it into Candian and it came out to $1979.58 but I don't know what pricing differnces their would be ordering from the Canada versions of Newegg, Amazon, etc.

I choose a USB wirless network adapter because the motherboard doesn't have any more PCIE slots.
