Hey guys! longtime lurker here. It’s been about 4 - 5 years (or so) since my last build (GTX 970 & i5 4690k). My old build has served me very, very well these past few years and I have a deep sense of pride knowing I built it myself. But its outdated and It shows, sadly.
Some parts, of course, are in great condition and can certainly be reused. But on the other hand I have a decent budget for a new system (got deployed and was fortunate enough to save all my pay while embarked overseas). Well, since I’m coming home soon I wanted to do something nice for myself once I get back.
I’ve only built two PCs before and both around $800 each.. so I’ve decided to go all out on my 3rd build!
Now I have a couple parts/builds already in mind but I’m wanting to know what you guys would like to see in a pc of this budget. I play mostly FPS games and watch a TON of movies. I'm also getting a 165hz 1440p monitor as well (not included in the budget.
What do you guys think? Any feedback is much appreciated.
