Question Gaming PC Build for ~1200CAD


Mar 28, 2013
Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: Around $1200 CAD - can be slightly more if there is a very significant upgrade for only a few more $, however would like to stick somewhere around $1200

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Primarily gaming

Are you buying a monitor: Not part of budget

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Pretty much any website - prefer Newegg and Amazon but can use Canada Computers or other websites as well.

Location: Canada

Parts Preferences: None

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Thank you!

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Looking to build a PC for a friend. The most demanding game that they play at the moment is phasmophobia, however they will likely be playing other more intensive games in the future.
