That's cool. I'm also looking into a gaming pc or laptop. I work on my iMac and want to just keep it for audio work. I just haven't been into PC setups at all for years so no idea what's good.

PCPP is the site i recommend to everyone, it's by far the most useful thing out there for toying with builds

if you're looking for a dedicated gaming machine that doesn't need to do other high end stuff, you'll want to look at an intel i5 for your CPU and the nvidia 10x series for a good GPU. you can build something very good that will future proof you for a few years with a reasonable budget on those two

be aware though, if you're like me and averse to the most recent versions of windows, you're now restricted on what kind of CPU you can use. the short version is, intel and AMD's newest stuff (kaby lake & ryzen, respectively) can only be used with windows 10. if you prefer to stick with 7, the newest compatible CPU from intel is the skylake series

Are ryzens pretty much the way to go these days? I’m building a new one as well and the i7 skylake and abzu's beverage lake seem to be much cheaper. I’ve been reading a lot of good things about ryzens though. I’m tempted to go for a ryzen 5 2600 (or should i go for the ryzen 7 1700 instead?)

That game was fun as hell. I’ll install it again together with GTA V and Diablo 3 once the new PC comes in. :xx:
