Laptop or Desktop? Desktop

My budget for the new computer is: $750 USD but I can go a little over if I need to 

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?  I will be using it for gaming but I will be starting to learn to program on it

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Windows 10

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Yes I play games of all genres

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 will usually have a few running at the same time

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? No

Will you be overclocking? No

Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? I live in Ohio USA

How many monitors are you planning to use? 1 at first but will be adding another later on

Do you need peripherals? OS? I am good on peripherals but I don't know what OS means

Any particular reason why you are upgrading? I need a better computer for gaming.

Your current computer is what? All you can get from it helps as budget is quite tight.

I am going to wait until black friday to get a new computer. I will have a $1000 USD budget then. If a computer could be found that would go with my monitor and my headset would be nice but it is not needed.

 

My computer is:

From your old computer you only could get HDD and DVD out. With $1000 you can get good computer especially if you buy on black friday.
