First $1000 Gaming/Editing Build! HELP NEEDED

Rallyman8800
  • 69 months ago

Hey, I need help with the parts for my VERY FIRST gaming/ editing rig. I am wanting to spend AT MAX $1000 or maybe $50 over. I need the keyboard, mouse, and the OS included. I have the monitors covered. I plan on running two to three monitors at once with one for gaming and two for other windows. I hope this works for guidelines. Please give so advice for a beginner like me in building this.

I agree...say No to Visiontek and yes to Sapphire. I removed the EVO and suggest stock cooler for now. Add CPU cooler later when you are ready for overclocking. Also, I found a better quality PSU.

I don't have any intention on over clocking I don't think its worth getting a little bit more power and risking problems.

Wow I didn't realize that. You probably want to go with a little more well-known company than that.
