Build Advice Need build 1.5k-2k stewing/gaming pc


Nov 4, 2011
Hi, any help appreciated.

Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: 1.5 to 2k (willing to go to 2k if better future proofing/performance)

System Usage from Most to Least Important:
  • streaming to Twitch with OBS/facerig/live2d and discord voice chat running and game playing at the same time
  • Discord chat/Skype
  • gaming : WoW, Apex, overwatch, steam games
  • video and music steaming -listening to spotify/youtube, watching YouTube vidoes
  • some Photoshop and Paintool Sai work (not often)
  • Lots of google docs usage
  • Lots of Chrome tabs (I have up to 30 tabs open)
Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: completely new build (PC) I have all peripherals such as monitor/keyboard already

Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Please note that if you're using an OEM license of Windows, you will need a new one when buying a new motherboard.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
any online retailer is fine

Location: Kokomo,IN united states

Parts Preferences: no preference

Overclocking: not needed, unless you recommend it

SLI or Crossfire: not needed, unless you recommend it

Your Monitor Resolution: I would have to double check

Additional Comments: need SS drive to boot Win 10 and probably 2 tb drive for storage

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: my computer is 5 years old and it has trouble streaming to Twitch with facerig/live2d running.

old rig: Windows 10- 64 bit, intel i3-6100 CPU @ 3.7GHz, 16 gig ram, NVIDIA GForce GTX960,

i don't plan on reusing anything from the old PC as even the case is too old to use (broken button and yellowing plastic)
