Quick background on me: I retired from the Army in 2018 and went back to school for nursing. I mostly play LoL and D3, but I may get back into WoW once I finish school. I also like to do some photo/video editing for pretty basic stuff like the millions of photos/videos of my 2-year-old.
I've built 3 computers before so I'm familiar with how to build them, but my last rig I built was almost 7 years ago which is why I need a new rig. My current one is starting to go out on me. I haven't been able to pinpoint just yet what the problem is (other than 7 year old pc). I figure that I may as well just build me a new budget gaming pc instead of replacing the GPU which I think is the issue. It just makes more sense to me to build a $500-600 pc now to last me another 5+ years than replace parts of half the cost. I am not really in touch with current PC equipment so I have no idea what to build. That's where you come in to help me. I would ideally like to stay under $500, but I'm also realistic that is difficult to do. My current rig was maybe $750 at the time and couple play Skyrim on ultra graphics when first built. If you can get under $500, please do that but max budget is $650. Thanks!
