New build around $1500-$2000 for upcoming games...suggestions pleaseeee. - Page 2

I've never really been a second-hand buyer, I've done it before and have had it not turn out well. Kind of like the security of buying new. smile.gif

Why would that be the best advice? Go ahead and post up your build.

The EVGA SuperNova GS is very average and the G2 is far better.

this could be an option witha freesync monitor

with better cooling

or if you plan using one GPU only get an i5 instead.

or you could add 2 of these which will outperform a GTX 980ti and the Fury X

another option could be with a 5820k if you will use more than 2 cards

Personally, I think it would be the best advice because for a complete build at this price point can sometimes be much better if you buy certain parts used for a far smaller price than brand new. I can already tell you that you could easily save a couple hundred dollars alone by buying a second hand 980 Ti and getting a better used 144Hz/1ms monitor instead of a $400 60Hz/5ms one.. Plus with the new Pascal or Greenland GPUs being released next year (hopefully) you might not want to spend $700 on a brand new 980 Ti.

But I understand if you had problems buying used in the past and definitely would advise you to purchase something used unless you were completely comfortable.

But personally, this is what i would do.

Go with an Intel i5-4690k & 212 EVO CPU Cooler. The 4690k will most likely never become a bottle neck for a computer of this price point, unless you really want the upgraded i7 for another $100, this will do just fine. I still run my i5-3570K overclocked and it is never an issue with this bottle necking.

The ASRock Z97 Extreme 4 is a good mobo, But i would spend half the money on a G.Skill Ares 8GB kit over the 16GB. If your mainly just going to be gaming, 8GB will be enough, unless you start getting into video editing and what not then you might wanna look at 16GB, again you could save ~$50 here and have room to upgrade for more if you REALLY need it.

I then would look into buying used, or even refurbished SSD, these especially can be found extremely cheap used.

Also along with a graphics card. the 980 Ti is a great card, but theres so many out there than can be found used, and barely used for $100-$150 less than brand new.

I would also look at better & cheaper monitors. I personally am a competitive csgo player and if you play a lot of FPS games, you will want a 1ms and 144Hz monitor. The ASUS VG248QE 24" is less than $250 and is 1ms/144Hz compared to the $400 5ms/60Hz 27".

Id leave the choice of case to yourself, find something you like. There are good and bad cases, but for the most part a lot of it is preference on size and looks.

Could always save $100 and just find a "free" version of windows 7, 8.1, or 10. (I always do, most do, but again this is preference)
