I found through extensive research, the best deal for my gaming pc from IBuyPower. An Asus motherboard won’t suddenly blow up, and is made to last, so that’s where you start. From there, I’d go with oil cooling a 6 core to 4ghz overclocked, 1tb sshd only, a decent 4k video card if possible, but anything with 1g mem by Nvidia or Zotac is great. The hardware may be a bit cheaper with Chinese junk, but software I just like better there. The sshd will let you boot up in seconds. You’ll also need 8gigs of ram to just know you’ll never need more (as far as all my work has required anyway). There are better and worse power supplies, and ram, so that’s where I’d go with Corsair’s best if possible.
Don’t get Windows from the maker; get it somewhere else. Ebay and Craigslist , you can get a copy for 20 to 35 bucks of windows 7. Don’t use anything else imo.
You may want to save a wad of cash for a 4k monitor or tv, something with led not lcd . 120hz and 4k with the best input lag ratings you can find. There is a very very very wide range of input lags on various tv’s/monitors, so do your research there. Staring at a screen for hours on end is painful if it’s 60hz and lcd, like mine is. It’s burning my eyes out with UV light, and the 60hz is known to make one tired. Something about cymatics, idk, but it’s also just hard on the nerves since the refresh rate is right at the rate of the human eye’s abilities. Do research on computer fans. A quiet set of fans is very nice. You’ll end up switching out fans if you get something substandard.
