  1. Budget & Currency -id like to spend roughly $1,200 on this build. Has a bit of a range there if needed but if I can save a bit of $$$ that's better :smile:
  2. Uses (gaming, multimedia, etc) -mostly gaming, but I'm going to sell my laptop since its on its last leg, so I'll need to everyday surf the interwebs with it
  3. Time Frame (when you plan to buythe parts) whenever is the best. I could buy whenever.
  4. Part Preferences (this can be specific companies, manufacturers, etc. Think AMD/Nvidia, Intel/AMD, modular/non modular, certain cases, etc) -no preference. Just need cost efficient, yet powerful parts.
  5. Color code (do you want things to match? If so what colors?) -I'm not going to b*tch about colors so I don't care about that too much. However I don't want no rainbow looking build plz.
  6. How many monitors will you game on? 1 for now, 2 would be killer though
  7. Peripherals (mouse, keyboard, speakers, monitor, etc) -I need a wired mouse, since my wireless one doesn't work well, a decent keyboard would be nice but it doesn't have to be some Razer brand expensive one.
  8. Special Requests (exactly as it sounds, any special requests go here) red and black always looks nice on a case. And I don't need something that is just as good, but costs $50 more. I'd like to be cost efficient about this.
  9. Do you plan on building it yourself or buying pre-built (NOTE: Although be warned, building it yourself is generally better in almost every situation.) -I can learn to build it myself. If prebuilt it's fine though.
Thanks guys, take your time on this I'm just looking for some ideas. ANY input is appreciated. And let me know if I'll need to add money or if I'm overshooting a bit. I just want to be able to play my games on a solid machine. Thanks <3

Both are black/red themed with black/red mobo, red ram, black/red GPU the ram and video card are actually the cheapest of the specs to fit so its just chance the colors match the Mobo is just upgraded from the cheap mobo to a higher end mobo with black/red only a miniscule price change which I would recommend even if not going for the color scheme.

Really nice IPS Monitor, one of best mouses & a great keyboard better than any razer **** but its refurbished so its not gunna have like a lifetime warranty.

I will warn the K65 keyboard is a cut down K70 (Most popular keyboard on most forums) with no number pad if you are somone who uses lots of trainers on games some trainers do use a number pad and it may be worth investing 5 bucks in a number pad.

The k70 does come in reds, blue or browns and many people prefer browns while many prefer reds. The k65 is only reds.
