I've never built a computer before, although I'm somewhat open to it... (I just get really nervous about screwing something up) I'm also leaning towards just buying a pc already built. I don't need anything extreme; however, at the very least, I want to be able to play the Sims 4 without any hiccups, stutters, or slowdowns. This is the onlygame I'll be playing. Additionally, I'll be primarily editing photos, watching HD videos, and listening/organizing music. I'll also be using ShadowProtect backup software.
I want at least 2 USB 3.0 ports and a chassis that will allow me to add at least 3-4 HDDs for backup purposes.
If you guys could kindly point me in the right direction as far as either building my own and point me towards a system that's already built, I would gladly appreciate it.
My budget is $1,000.
I've tried looking for PCs already built...... but I keep running into AMD systems? I would prefer an Intel processor i5 Quad.
