So I'll get right to it. I'm currently disabled and have been for over a year. I'm looking into working from home as a video streamer/reviewer/gamer. However, my system is 11 years old and is on its last legs, so to speak. My father in law has very graciously offered to purchase me a new computer and has given me a budget of $2k. It's not set in stone more a guideline. I can be over, but want to keep it as reasonable as possible. He is, after all, being very generous. The problem is that I know very little about computer hardware and don't know what to look for. I've done plenty of searching online and found a number of sites that suggest this component or that and expect that I'm going to piece it all together. This is not really an option for me. I'm actually looking for the best bang for my buck without having to manually put it all together.
To the question:
- Can anyone suggest a package that would be ideal for me?
As stated above, I'm looking to stream videos as well as post previously recorded videos, so I'll obviously need a ton of storage space. Also because nobody wants to watch streams or video's with poor-graphic quality, this too will be a must. Obviously, that goes for the video quality of the games I'll be playing as well. I play such titles as Skyrim, Day Z, and Starcraft 2. As well as a host of old, more retro, games such as Diablo 2, Starcraft, and some even older Dos games. I should also state I'm looking for a desktop PC not a laptop. Also, I'm not at all familiar with Mac. So, IBM all the way.
I assume you are affiliated with BestBuy. That is fine. I'm just looking for help in what I should be looking for. Anything you suggest is helpful.
My thanks in advance,
