As the title says, I am looking to build a new gaming Desktop. My budget is around $2,000 and I need everything except the display, keyboard, mouse and speakers, which I can get elsewhere or already have.
I would like a high-end gaming machine that will be strong for the next 5-6 years, if possible.
I will not be doing super-intensive things other than playing modern games, but am open to a dual card option if it would be better to have to keep the machine strong for that time period.
Other things to consider: I would rather have a desktop replacement-laptop for the mobility, but am looking for a strong machine that is around that budget, so that might not be strongly possible and/or recommended, so I am seeking a desktop build as well.
Have no preference on AMD or nVidia because I have used both in the past and they have both served me well in one form or another.
No need for an i7 card because of what I'll be using the computer for, so a high-end i5 will suffice.
I have a friend who will put it together with me for free, so no worries there.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
