Right now I play pretty much every game at 1080p 60 fps. Now I am looking to prepare for 2k gaming at 60 fps. Obviously a GPU is a main component of that, but I wouldn't want to buy something like the RX Vega with other components that truly need an upgrade more than my current GPU.

This is a much better list, seems like its more expensive but it's actually cheaper because the one you listed did not include the price of the motherboard.

A much better cpu for cheaper, better graphics card(double the memory/same price), a better motherboard, i know the tridentz RGB looks super nice but it's not worth spending the money if you're on a tight budget, you're better off spending that extra money on a better processor and an ssd which is going to make your loading time for games & windows a lot faster, if you really feel like you need 1tb of storage, I highly suggest at least getting the 240gb version of that SSD and a 1tb harddrive, using the ssd for windows and games, hard drive for random storage.


You can also get windows 10 for $12 instead of $100, you just need a usb, download windows media creation tool, run the tool & install it onto the usb, then stick the usb into the computer when it's ready to boot for the first time and it will download windows for you, make sure you select windows 10 pro when you install it.

After that, just follow what he says in this video and you'll be set
