Hello,
I hear this is the best place to come for advice. I am currently looking to build a relatively "future proof" gaming rig.


Approximate Purchase Date: End of Year, Early Next Year
Budget Range: $1000-2000 shipped including monitor.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Watching Movies
Are you buying a monitor: Yes
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon is preferred due to payment and shipping options.
Location: Nashville, TN, USA
Parts Preferences: Intel/Nvidia
Overclocking: No
SLI or Crossfire: No
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 or better
Additional Comments: NO RGB OR WINDOWED CASES PLEASE. I really want to play Automation without stuttering. It would be cool if I could play GTA and Planetside (does that even exist anymore?) again.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I haven't had a PC capable of gaming since 2015.

Current Build Parts List
I was wondering if all of the parts I have selected will play nice with each other and get some opinions on the choices I have made.
I have a WD Blue 500GB SSD and a 2TB Seagate Firecuda SSHD for storage already.


NOTE: If I have done something wrong or if this post is not allowed, please inform me. I am new to the forums.
