Again relativity. A $700 GPU is "good" for me. But for what I do I would need two of those. My work laptop has a $1300 GPU and it's just okay.

Right video editing is a whole other ball game for sure but maybe lead with that :) .     This dude just wants to play CS:GO and I'd be sad if he seen that comment and got discouraged because he thinks the video card he NEEDS to get a good one costs his entire budget haha.

He's still going to need a high end "good" :shades: GPU if he wants to stream and play today's AAA games in HD/UHD.

Also, I highly recommend getting some LED lighting for around your monitor. Just attached this earlier this month and I love it. Before and after.

Since my tower is under my desk, I didn't really try to make it fancy with LED lighting. In fact, this is the only picture I have of inside the case and it was right as I was booting it up for the first time.

Since I don't get to nerd out that often. I have a female roommate so this is the man corner.

How do you like the ultrawide monitor? I'm scared it's going to be to much...I already don't look around enough on my screen that I have now. Everyone enjoys them though.

OP, you should post your parts list on https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales. You'll have to filter out what some people say, but you'll get some good advice and someone will find good deals for you.

I was unsure about the ultra wide but I LOVE IT. Especially for video editing. But I've been playing Skyrim in 1440p Ultra wide and it's sex. The other is a 27" 4K.

Must of missed this thread, dunno how. Like DeX has said if you want to stream and play AAA titles at decent settings your going to power. With that budget for the build your going to need to be extra picky on what parts you pick/wait on sales for some parts...ext. 

 

Also are you looking for full tower/mid tower...ext

 

lots of questions to be answered. 

 

 

As for dex's build I'd switch out the 1050TI for a rx 580, comparable price but pretty good performance bump and extra 4gb of vram. you can get them for 200-220.

Go get yourself an ultrawide, and you'll never look back. it's pretty damn amazing.

BTW  if you buy from Ibuypower you can use Affirm internet financing( with approval)   I bought a $2200 desktop ( paid about 250-300 more than I could doing it myself) but I got a nice warranty and I couldnt' afford 2200 out of pocket at the time so the Affirm deal worked great for me.   I think I made $180 payments for 12 months.  Turned out great so far. PC is a year and a half old now and not even the slightest hitch.

I also bought an iBUYPOWER (from Best Buy) and it's a fuging beast. Came with a warranty and they actually used quality parts/brands for the build.

    • I am so starved for intellectual posts that contain optimism.  The OP is on to something worth considering.  If we wanted a QB in the draft, we might have to move up and take the third best.  Signing Bridgewater is smart.  Now we can draft a qb next year or the year after. People do not realize that we have addressed the needs on offense.  Pretty much all of them.  The OL is the big question mark, but we are better at LT (Okung and a second-year Little), LG (Do not underestimate Reed--he is not a star, but he is serviceable; Daley is also in play), C (a healthy Paradis and Larsen in a better system), RG (We drop a little, but not much.  Kerr can hold his own), and RT is Moton.  I think we are solid at TE.  So we improved at 3 OL positions, stayed the same at 1, and dropped a bit at 1.  At WR, do not be surprised to see how much the Jets misused Robby Anderson.  Getting the ball on time to Moore--with what he can do after the catch---scary.  Samuel will be used better.  We have 3-4 others that should be on our roster.  We are much better, and we could draft one. At RB---CMC, yes.  Davis.  We kept him on the roster last year for a reason.  I think he becomes our #2.  Scarlett and Bonnefon are going for #3.  Good depth. Not sure Armah stays. And at QB, we should be interesting to say the least---however, I doubt we go QB this year. So in the draft, we might draft an OL (C) late.  We might not.  On defense, we have done NOTHING at CB, NOTHING much at LB, and we have 2 DT openings. We are CERTAINLY drafting a CB, MLB, DT, NT, and S in this draft. Maybe a WR and an OL.  We have 8 picks, maybe more if we trade. I am done.
    • So cases went down and deaths went down today.  Good sign?  Or just a pothole on the continued rise?
