    Greetings! We can look into that with you. Do you already have a monitor / peripherals or would you be looking to include them in the cost of your budget? 
  • No i already have a keyboard, mouse, headset, and monitor. Just looking for a new pc.

    Alright here is what I would have for an Intel and NVIDIA GPU build - Configure Your PC: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=bcd229d0-cd1a-4f65-bf3c-4719ee69e56f

    You could swap out the water cooling for an air cooler to save some money on the build if needed. Besides that, processor wise, for just gaming the next processor up would be the 9900k which wouldn't be a big benefit for gaming, if really much any and would jump about $130 in price for that as well.

    Windows is included in the build price as well, so it comes to a little over $1500 before taxes as-is.

  • So I believe I got a good build for you here.  Just a few things to let you in on.  The cooler and the extra fans I got in the build aren't same name brand so if you want to keep the aesthetic the same across with similar colors or name brands you may need to change those up.  But the corsair fans I picked are a really good set up magnetic fans.  Got a nice cpu & gpu combo of an i7-9700k and a 2060 super.  If you can swing about an extra 140 bucks then you can jump up to a 2070 super from Gigabyte that they offer for 499 which may be worth it.  But other than that this pc will handle all 1080p gaming at maxed settings well above 60fps and do some pretty good 1440p gaming at medium to high settings well above 60 fps.  And if yo hate the case, you can always remove the Seagate drive and go up to something like the meshify c or whatever case you want.  Enjoy

    That is INCLUDING Windows. If necessary you can save a bit of money in different spots, like going with a slightly cheaper case or an 80+ Bronze PSU instead of Gold.
