Nov 24, 2018
Approximate Purchase Date: Cyber Monday or this weekend if deals are live

Budget Range: 1250 USD

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming on High

Are you buying a monitor: Maybe. If can't be fit into budget can wait until New Year. Currently have a 23 inch 1080p but want to game at 1440p

Parts to Upgrade: VC, CPU, MOBO, RAM. I have a keyboard, mouse, ssd, and 650 psu already.

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference just looking for reliable deals

Location: St. Louis MO. There is a Micro center close by

Parts Preferences: No preference. I trust the advice on TH

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1440p preferred eventually. Will include now if I can afford it, but if not then in the New Year

Additional Comments: Upgrading from a 780ti

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Gaming PC is 5-6 years old and just isn't holding up.

I have not chosen anything yet as I just determined I can afford to purchase now. Hoping that I didn't miss any BF deals.
