I have been wanting to build a computer now for a long time, as I have always heard about the many benefits. I have been working for a while now researching, and trying to find some parts that will fit my uses. None the less I feel as though I could use a lot of help.
I am an avid gamer, and that will be the top priority for this computer. The main game I play is Starcraft 2, but also want it to perform well on Skyrim, and the modern first person shooters. I would also like it for basic schoolwork functions, excel, word, etc. I also watch streams frequently so I would like for them to run smoothly on 1080p. My budget for this project is around $800.
Here is a list of what my research has brought me to so far. Please feel free to change anything as long as in the end, I end up with a rig around $800.
