My budget: $700-800You can suggest a build/barebones/desktop.
Primary computer use: Gaming
Extras: Live Streaming, Recording
I've spent 2 months looking for the right gaming desktop. I'd search for hours at a time every couple days. It's safe to say that I've obsessed over this for a little too long. I learned a lot from all of my research, I enjoyed it, but now I'm eager to buy. I can't seem to decide for myself. So I give up! I need help guys. Alright let me list what I've come up with over the past few days...
CPU: i5 Intel
-Everyone rides the i5 bandwagon, makes me feel like its necessary. I really wanted an AMD for whatever reason, I know they're cheaper, but I don't want to sacrifice performance.
GPU: Radeon HD 6850-6870
-Something based around this, I've been attached to these from the start. I also know little to nothing about any other cards.
-I can go lower.
PSU: Must be safe.
Case: Not looking to expand. I'd like a simple clean looking case.
Motherboard: I'm not too familiar with this. Don't need expansion room for up to 16GB RAM or something crazy like that.
Fans: I'm not going to mess with overclocking. I just need enough to cool the desktop appropriately.
Disc Drive: Not important to me. Needed for OS though.
Hard Drive: Still not important. I'd like enough room for a few games and extras. I'm only using 150GB of my current 450GB HD.
So there you have it. Honestly, you don't have to follow what I listed above
. Please go at it for me, I'm too excited to buy and build my first desktop. If you make a post I will be sure to interact with you. I hope someone can make my dream build happen, I wouldn't be able to thank you enough.
I'm nervous about the fans and PSU. I don't want to overheat or have my PSU fail.
I will be playing games such as: RTS, MMORPG, MOBA ... maybe even a little FPS? Primarily the 3 I listed before.
