    I have a question for all of you that are into building PCs, PC parts, etc. I'm thinking about getting a gaming PC finally in about a month. My budget is $2,000 for it and my buddy said to look at iBuyPower. What would be the best PC for $2k? To the point where I wont have to worry about upgrading it for a bit. Keep in mind, i'm going to use it to simply play games on it. So none of that recording videos and shit, just simply gaming. Im just not into PCs like that so im not sure which one to get. Any help?

    buy prebuilt to save money and not get raped by graphics card prices since crypto miners fucked the market

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    change to a 1070ti graphics card
    change to ryzen 5 1600x so u get free ryzen 7 1700 upgrade
    add a 250gb samsing evo ssd
    power supply i got is a thermaltake toughpower grand 650w

    should cost $1626


    normally you could build that pc for like $1100 but the cryptophaggots ruined the gpu market making $500 graphics cards cost $1500+

    So after adding everything you told me and getting a different case, it came out to this.


    With the shit you recommended though, would I be able to play all the big games easily? Im not expecting ultra HD quality but I just dont want to upgrade my shit for a few months at least

Like I said, i'm a complete fucking scrub when it comes to PC parts and shit. Would you be able to look at their Valentines Day sale and possibly try to find a better PC for me? Of course, still under the $2k mark. If not, i'll just get the one you told me.

    Again, I want this shit as best as it can be but stay under $2k, lol. I can use it to simply play games. No streaming, recording, or any of that. Please and thank you

    Would you recommend getting this one than? https://puu.sh/znhp1/b0743e30ff.png

    My main concern is, would I be able to run game with no issues at all with that setup? And not have to worry about upgrading it for a bit
