Looking to Build a Rig for Star Citizen


Budget (including currency): CAD $1,300

Country: Canada

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Heavy Gaming, mainly Star Citizen

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

Currently gaming on a laptop that BSOD every couple of days and looking to upgrade so that i can run SC with minimal lag, currently maxing at 20, but its more like a slideshow. I don't want to be spending alot and trying to do it on a budget, any help is appreciated for finding parts and getting good deals.

With a deep cool gammax 200t, you get almost wraith spire performance, over the wraith stealth that comes with the 1600 12nm . this can get you overclocks of around or over 4ghz
