First PC rig/Gaming rig
Good Afternoon Everyone,
I am building my first PC ever. I would like to use it to game. Specifically 4k gaming. I would like to use Microsoft Flight Simulator as a benchmark since it is the most demanding title that has me interested in PC gaming. I already purchased a Sapphire Technology AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Pulse Dual-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card from MC and that's the only item that I have for this build. I am open to suggestions on any parts other than the GPU. I'm looking to build this system in the next week or so depending on part availability in my area. I have done a lot of research on my own and tried to go to multiple sources and the PC Builder list below are the items that I thought looked like the best quality/price combo. I do not care at all about aesthetics, I only care about it running as well as it can and the parts being compatible to maximize each parts life span. I'd really like to keep the total of the build (minus the GPU) under $2k US. Any advice you can give a newbie would be greatly appreciated. In a perfect world, I buy all the parts from MC then put it together myself but if I have to get some assistance from the fine folks at MC then that is fine too. Thank you again for any advice you have.
