Hi guys ! 

i'm gonna build my first computer and i need your opinions.

I already got an SSD.

 

I'm hesitating between two build.

My budget is around 800$ (can go to 1k if its gonna last longer).

 

PC usage:

40% League of Legends

30% Browsing web (twicth, youtube, forums,...)

30% Latex, programming, excel, distance computer

 

i dont think i need to overclock

 

i5 4460 + GTX 960 : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/WQYbgs

 

vs.

 

i3 4160 + 750 Ti : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/w7RnvK

 

Or if you got anything better for me go for it !

 

Thanks guys,

st-lows

Don't forget, you need a copy of Windows.  You cannot reuse your current one if it is a System Builder/OEM edition since it is tied to your motherboard.  I like the first build you link to.  I would suggest an Intel Skylake-based build, but I think that is a little bit out of your price range.

 

An AMD build may be little less expensive, but unless you already have an AMD system and are looking to upgrade that, you may see better performance with an i5.  The only exception I can think of is if you have a highly threaded program that favors physical cores over HyperThreading.
