It's been a long time since I posted a computer build request here. My buddy and I are going to build a gaming computer for his 13 year old computer since his existing one took a dump. Right now he's very heavily into Minecraft as well as streaming and broadcasting which he's doing very well in. I'm sure as he gets older, his gaming choices are going to expand a bit more too. The budget is $950, which his mom is about to drop on an Alienware computer unfortunately.
We are going to need all parts. I'm considering an operating system too, however with the fact that Windows 10 just came out I don't know how that is going to play into things as I don't know much about installing straight to it, or if we should even pursue that route since it's so new and won't know about driver issues until the last second. Any advise is welcome.
Look forward to seeing the builds you come up with! Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
