2016 Build Help

JerryRig

I am new to PC building and need help deciding what to get for a good PC around 2000-2500CDN$ that will last me around 2-3 years.

 

I am just playing in 1080p right now, but I would like to be able to play 4k.

 

I dont need peripherals or any of that.

 

I want to be gaming on max settings in all the new content for 2016 and 2017

What is your build for? Work, 3D, editing, rendering, gaming?

PC only or with Monitor, mice, keyboard, etc.

1k watts is a little bit too much even if you plan on OC'ing, a 750W or a 850W would be better, hell even a 650W would be

@JerryRig you might want to go with a 390/390x as they are more cost-effective and still have very good performance at 1440p/4k

 

 

This will handle 4k very well, but get some extra case fans to keep the airflow going in the case because those GPUs can get quite hot without it
