Hi all. So recently I got a bonus from work and have decided to buy a new computer. While I could theoretically upgrade my old one, it would probably be easier at this point to just buy a new one. If people want to know what I'm currently using, just ask and I can PM my DXDiag.
Laptop or Desktop? Desktop
My budget for the new computer is: $2500
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Gaming (perhaps programming)
What software do you intend on using on the computer? For now, nothing fancy (at least nothing worth mentioning).
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? A lot of variety here. Everything from games made in the 90s to games that have just come out. FPS', RPGs, MMOs. If there's an "All" category, I'd probably be that.
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? I usually have a few programs running at once. Not including the bare essentials (Anti-virus and such), I probably run around eight small programs (steam, battlenet, skype) and around two or three big ones (internet browser, a game and perhaps something else).
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? No.
Will you be overclocking? No, unless required.
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? I'm in Canada, but am willing to order international if required.
How many monitors are you planning to use? Right now I have one, but a second monitor would be nice.
Do you need peripherals? OS? My mouse and keyboard can probably use some replacing (they aren't bad, just getting on in years). No need for printer/scanner/fax. OS will probably be Windows 10 (unless there's a reason to use another one).
Any particular reason why you are upgrading? As I stated before, I probably could upgrade, but I've had this computer for a good number of years and it's starting to show it's age (the video card especially). I've had to reformat around three times for different reasons. I originally bought it around five years ago, and figured it was time for an upgrade.
Thanks in advance,
