CPU: Intel i5-7600k 3.8GHz ($240)

MB: ASUS Z270-A $170

Case: Corsair Air 540 ($122)

Graphics: GTX 1050 SSC Gaming 2GB GDDR5 $160 April 2018

PSU 650w EVGA $100

Heatsink Noctua 6 NH-D15 $100



256 GB SSD which literally isn't even big enough for Windows and World of Warcraft now lol

1 TB WD Hard Drive

DVD Drive



I've got a little money and the roommate and her kids need/want a PC so I'm starting to look in to options.

I am not much of a videophile and I didn't own a subwoofer for 20 years so I'm not exactly super in to the cinematic experience. I just want everything to work really, really well. I do record video of most my Warcraft pulls so that's the most demanding thing I do.

I probably want a new graphics card ...dang is this one 4 years old already? Seems like yesterday.

thats pretty much expensive for both mobo and cpu, prolly would opt i3 10100f/10105f or i5 11400f + any b560 motherboard

I'd guess $400 .... tech depreciates quickly especially when you can get something like this new.
