background on me:
Im very technically savvy so building would not be an issue, although I have never built a computer before. Usage will be some web browsing, music and movie downloading (iTunes) and I do video game so this will be its main use. I currently play Guild Wars 2 which is an older game by todays standards but may expand out into BF2 and some FP shooter. I moved to Mac about 5 years ago and may come back to Windows. (hate on Mac if u want but its been way more stable than all of my windows machines!! I have been gaming since the 90's)
System I am considering to build:
Some of these parts are over priced on parts picker, I have this down to about $1450.00ish (price spike on the 580 )
but here is the question, right now theres a Dell PC (i know i know) for $1299.95 with much more
So I ask, why build? Same video card, 32gb ram vs 16gb in my build, 1800X over the 1600. I would prefer to try my first build but the price.....some honest, no troll, advice would be appreciated.
