Need a Computer Build To run games at 1080p at 60fps on high to max settings for $700-$800


Oct 23, 2015
I'm a newer pc gamer in the way of this is my first pc build. I need to build a computer for roughly $700-800 that includes an operating system and if possible a monitor. The computer I really would like would be able to run games like CS:GO, Minecraft, GTA V, Gmod, and games like that at 60fps with high to max settings. Medium settings would be tolerable if it will still run smooth and look good. Please help me!
You could drop the i5 to an i3 to stay within budget, but would really recommend sticking with the i5...
