1070 :alien: that's a very nice setup. the only thing i can match that on is the SSD, i have the exact same one :redneck: what kind of monitor does she have?
 
i will probably do a rebuild/upgrade in june to move up to a 1000-series GPU and a few other improvements. i financed my current rig through my work at 0%, once it's paid off i'll see if i can get another freebie loan for the next wave of hardware

i7s are a lot more expensive both in cost and power consumption, and don't provide any real performance advantage over the i5 for gaming. unless she's planning on doing video rendering/editing or some-such it's kind of a waste

the monitor is actually not amazing, its an ASUS VS228H-P 21.5, but you know it looks alright and we're okay with it. it's running at 1920x1080 so this rig should pretty much slay everything. the only thing i cheap'd out on was the ram but i don't think it really matters these days.
 
i put it together last night (i only wanted to kill myself once or twice) and it booted up on the first try :gay: i woke up at 5am and saw that she was just going to bed after a long night of gaming :redneck:

about $1300ish, pretty expensive but this pc will last for a long time. you could save a few hundred dollars by getting some cheaper parts.
