I am a gamer who has been using some bad hardware for a while now. I was not financially stable enough to buy a good PC but now that I am out of college I would like to finally make the investment and could use some advice.
To answer some standard questions, 1.) I will be gaming, both graphically intense games and less so like League of Legends. 2.) I will need a new keyboard and Monitor but not mouse or headset. 3.) I would like a high end PC but not an extreme one, my budget is the following: Ideal - $1200 If needed $1500 give or take.
First of all I have never built a PC and am scared to do so, I feel like if I mess up there is no going back and all that money is down the drain. I have no experience building PCs and no techy friends to help. I am wondering if even considering all that I should still attempt to build a pc and if I do how do I get the proper information to ensure I dont mess up.
If buying a PC is possible im wondering if there are sites out there that take the parts you want and put them in a PC. I have looked over IBuyPower and Cyberpower but the price per part seems kind of ridiculous. The amount they upcharge everything is really just not worth it from what I have seen.
Below is a link to a pc part picker i put together. If you could look over it and tell me if im on the right track that would be great.
Thanks so much for all your help in advance!
