    Switching PC

    Looking to upgrade my PC. Looking for a gaming one without having to go Razer or Alienware since i'd never use them to full capacity. You guys got any recommendation?

    1. What type of games are you planning to play?
    2. What is your price range?
    3. Do you expect to upgrade any of the components?
    We need a better idea of what your asking for exactly to provide you good suggestions.

    oh right mostly RTS games the heaviest would be Overwatch (not RTS I know). Price range would 3000 dollars max. And no not planning on upgrading components in the forseeable future.

    $3000 USD? That’s a lot of bang for your buck.
    Off the top of my head you’d probably be best off with:
    Latest generation i5 or i7
    GTX 1070 hits a nice balance between performance and price, the GTX 1060 is better value for 1080p gaming
    16GB RAM
    512GB SSD
    3 or 4TB HD

    As an aside I would opt for a graphic card that has water-cooling built-in, or you use a bracket adapter like the Kraken G10 to use any standard AIO water cooler. You get much cooler graphics card operating temperatures.

    With a 3,000 USD budget you can easily get a last gen i7 + GTX 1080 combo.. even on a branded gaming machine (HP, Dell, Lenovo etc..).
    If you instead build by yourself, 3,000 USD is really a lot of money, OP can maybe even target a Core Extreme processor, albeit that doesn’t really make sense unless the OP is serious about OC (and spend some money and time to get the right cooling system).
