Original Build Date: January 2014

Budget Range: Trying to keep it under 600 total, but flexible

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and Streaming

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: CPU, Mobo, GFX, Ram, Power Supply if need be

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference. I previously bought on Newegg

Location: Phoenix, AZ USA

Parts Preferences: No preference

Overclocking: No

Additional Comments: Want to make sure parts last for a while. Last build ran new games on at least high until the last year. I would also like to keep my gaming case and power supply if I don't need to change them. Also I have heard good things about the new AMD processor, but no real preference on brand.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Want to run new games at a higher graphic level.

I would start by sourcing the GPU and then build the system. No point in getting a new box up and running when you can't get a GPU to run the games you want.
