Can you please tell us your budget?


For the games you stated, it will do great :)


Personally, I would recommend getting an Intel Processor and Nvidia graphics card


I would go with:


Motherboard: ASRock ATX DDR4 FATAL1TY Z170 GAMING K4

CPU: Intel Core I7-6700K (Intel Core i5 6600K would do the job too)

GPU: GeForce GTX 970


And I would go for 16GB memory


About monitors, are you looking for 4K gaming?

I have a 24" DELL U2412M. Note that is a 16:10 ratio monitor with a resolution of 1920x1200 instead of 1920x1080 .

This is nice for gaming but means your computer has to work slightly harder to create more pixels which can bring slightly lower FPS at times.


Look for response time (lower is better), refresh rate (higher is better)


Here are one of the best monitors you can get. Hope this help
