Need help with a good gaming computer from $800-$1100 for games like CS:GO and Minecraft
I have never built a PC before so I really don't have any idea what I'm doing. I was hoping someone would be able to help me find out a good build to run games like Minecraft and CS:GO on windows 7 at a high fps (200+). My budget is currently around $1000 including preferably a 120 hz monitor.
You should list what case you plan on using and the other parts you have already picked out. I couldn't find anything compatible with what I wanted for the price. You have to give these guys a starting point. One of the Gurus will help you out once they have something to go on.
Archaic59 put this together for me... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/HKstVn
He actually only had 16GB of RAM. I changed that part. But it maybe close to what you need.
Here you go!
