I hope I’ve found the right place to request help. I read one of the stickied posts here so I will try to give all the details I can as requested.

As the title suggests, I am seeking a build within the $1,500-2,000 range. I aim to use it primarily for gaming but it will be used for business as well (nothing intensive, just spreadsheets). I will need an OS and a monitor, so that is included in the desired price range. I live in Georgia (that was mentioned as helpful information in the post). I mainly go for modern AAA titles but play a bit of about everything else (I assume that’s most people). I have built a PC once before but sold it after college. It’s easy to search for all the best parts independently, but when it comes to harmonizing everything into a desired price range I’m out of my element. I’m seeking the best I can afford of course. It’s not an urgent purchase either; I just want it within the next month.

Thanks!
