Hi guys, I've followed this site for years, to keep up with my favorite games, but just today discovered the hardware section of the forums.... Anyway to jump into it I've gamed since I was around 16-17 starting with Ultima Online, and now I'm 28 playing GW2. Recently my gaming PC up an died on me, and I am now in the market for a new one.
In the past I have always bought pre-built computers, but after reading up on it, and seeing experienced builders saying how much further your money goes, I am seriously considering trying a build on my own, albeit I am a bit intimidated by it
With that being said, if you guys think I would be better off buying a pre-built I am certainly open to that idea, and if so please provide a link to what you think would be good for me.
My gaming primarily consists of MMO's with GW2 being my current, but I want a pc that will be able to run some of the upcoming releases such as Camelot Unchained, and Crowfall while getting good FPS. Also I would like it to be able to play RTS games such as Rome Total War II without lagging if such a thing is possible (I blame that game for the death of my old pc.)
Anyway my budget is $2250, and I need that to include a Monitor, speakers would also be a plus, but not a necessity as I have a nice headset that I use most of the time anyway. I have all the other stuff that I need as far as I know (Mouse, keyboard, and headset). So yeah, all help would be appreciated.
And thanks to everyone who reads, and takes the time to respond to this thread!
