Hi Everyone,

I am going to buy a new computer. My old computer (i5 4670k, ddr3 ram) is too old to play great games.

I was thinking about this

I want a good power supply and CPU as well as mobo, my last mobo died on me a couple years in and was not fun replacing. The cheaper the better, but max probably like $2200 or so. I could also wait on the monitor as mine is a 30" 1920x1080 59 hz samsung; not bad but sucks for gaming because it's meant for production not gaming. Can see pixels too without the 'enhancement' features.

Also - is gsync worth it?

EDIT: I would like to play just BF5, Dyling Light 2. I have a Samsung (830?) evo ssd 500 gb and a copy of windows 10 64 bit

I did a spin on your build, with some refinements along the way, albeit a little pricier;

You can work with a Freesync monitor and have support from Nvidia's end since they've announced in early this year that Freesync monitors will work on Nvidia 1000 series and above GPU's.
 
Do you really need a full tower case? Won't 16 gigs of ram be sufficient?
