Do you already have a monitor? what brand/model?

Hello zlife17

While iammykyl is offline Here is a list of parts for you to check over.

Couple of things to note are that I have not included an OS disk as you may already have one, if you plan on overclocking the k version of the CPU is available for $10 more, there is plenty of room inside the case to allow for the heat spreaders on the Ram and the monitor that I have selected is IPS standard which offers better widescreen viewing but does have a slower 5ms response time as opposed to the 2ms I would normally suggest.

Thank you :blush:

The parts will more than meet your requirements :thumbsup:

As I said earlier the only thing that you may wish to change is the CPU for the unlocked k version of the i5 4670, I did not suggest it as I do not overclock and have spent an awful lot of time helping people to try and repair an overclocked computer that has gone wrong, k versions of the CPU however can be found Here

Keep in mind that the suggested video card has 4GB of video memory which is twice what most other high performance video cards have :)

What OS do you intend using and do you have it already.

I am using Windows Pro 8.1 64-bit on each of my computers now and find it faster than Windows 7, many people however do prefer Windows 7 to Windows 8.

Gday.
Thanks Phillpower2 for stepping in with help and your suggested build.

Sorry a bit late with mine, both build are about equal in performance just gone slightly different parts,


Below is a configuration for your consideration, it will give very good performance in application and play games at very high settings.
Please note, Mice and keyboards are very personal, consider visiting a shop so you can try some out, Same goes for speaker. You stated your preference for wireless, you will find more choice with wired as this appears to be more favoured with gamers. I have also included speakers..
Be happy to answer questions and give reasons for parts choice.
