Hello. The title says it all. I went through hours of talking with others from various sources on how I should edit my build. Here it is. If you have any recommended changes, please comment. I'm mainly going for some gaming (OW mainly) and regular daily use for this PC. Hope I can finally come to a conclusion using this website... (My budget is $1100 and this includes the tax @ 8.7%)

by trimming the costs of things like the keybard, the case and fans and a less expensve motherboard and monitor, we improve the CPU, the GPU, double both the RAM and the size of the SSD and triple the size of the HDD.


Its a better build all around.
