So I am trying to put a gaming pc together from scratch. I have $1,500(can go a little over) but not sure where to start with this. He wants a gaming pc that works great with gaming, vr, and also video recording... Things we dont need is a Operating System, Dvd drive. As far a hard drive goes.. Just one SSD is needed.. I have a 250g SSD and 1 trig HDD.. So just a better SSD... Looking for the best I can do.. So again can go a bit over.. Lol


Edit: Gonna check these out, I totally forgot to mention.. I don't need Monitors, keyboards, mouse.. I am sorry for forgetting to mention this. 1080.

Still waiting on feedback for my build (if everything is compatible, fits, CPU fan, etc.) Hope this helps somewhat and gives you something to think about while you wait for more knowledgeable input :)

What resolution do you want to game at? Do you have a monitor, if so which one?
$1500 is a decent budget for getting a good 1080p system IMO, considering you din't need OS and only one SSD.
