I am looking to build a gaming rig, and I would appreciate input on my idea so far. This is my first build, and I could always use more advice. I wont be offended if you hate it, and please include some kind of reasoning for a suggestion. I have a list bellow to help with a little background.
Budget $1500 max, including monitor/OS/Keyboard.....
Primary Focus - Gaming
Video Editing/3D creation - None
Overclock - Optional, hence the case that can support liquid later if I decide to.
Theme/Color - Accidentally made a red/black theme don't let that limit you though!
Graphics card - Debating GTX 970 4G vs R9 390 8G, kinda of leaning R9
CPU - Skylake, thinking i5; i7 doesn't have much overclock room for the $
Monitor - 1mn, 144hz, TN, 1080p, 20-27"; I have picked what I think these specs for the $
Case - Versatility is key, but I want something that will last and be easy to install upgrades on years down the road
CPU fan - Not entirely sure! Liquid is a little much for now, and I don't plan to do tons of OC (max 20%). Just want a little of the OC option.
Mouse - Anyone have a good, super cheap suggestion? bellow $40.
RAM - 8Gb is plenty for me now, but fingers crossed on a game that needs 16gb later.
