Wondering.

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if [MENTION=28]Christopher`[/MENTION] still provides PC help. Because.. I basically want to know the best possible build for somewhere around $1000, The only things I require are: Must be able to edit/record/stream/ games and MMO's, Play other games decently, such as FPS's, this is a weird one but I want some sort of back lit keyboard. Not included in the $1000 budget is the monitor's which i don't want to be over $100, but want a dual monitor setup. Hopefully you can help me out because my laptop is getting to the point where I just want something much nicer. ALSO, included in the budget must be some sort of Wi-Fi card because I live in a dorm where there is only wifi available. I know this whole thing is poorly constructed, and I'm sorry but it's currently 12:47 AM and I'm very tired. So if you can help me out it'd be much appreciated. Edited by Rich

Threw this together real quick before work this morning. Could probably be tweaked a bit.

Also, a budget of $100 for [b]2[/b] monitors is wishful thinking. A monitor that's actually worth it (and isn't like 18") is going to be at least $120 for one.

Hey [MENTION=88844]Rich[/MENTION], how have you been, dude? Haven't seen you in a while.

Anyways, the build Ziek provided would be pretty good - If you don't want an SSD, you could always remove it and upgrade your graphics card to either a 970, or 980.

Also, I forgot to mention the need for a compatible case for all of this. And what is the need for the SSD? Just curious.

You could possibly find monitors for that price on Black Friday if you're willing to wait.

[/QUOTE]I'll probably have to wait anyway, due to the fact I need to save the money up anyway, so hopefully by then some of the parts will be cheaper as well.

An SSD is great to put your OS and a few essential programs or games on. Windows 7 on a SSD can boot in like 5 seconds or so. Programs and games on it will run faster as well. As Chris said, though, you can take the SSD out and put that money towards a better GPU if you want.

As far as waiting, yeah, the parts will be cheaper then, but also out of date. Save up the money and hit me or Chris up again and we can revise the build to be up-to-date and still best bang for your buck.
