First PC Build - working list


Hey everyone! I'm saving up to build my first gaming pc to replace an old gaming laptop that's way too slow. I've got a running build list right now, and hoping to keep the build under $1800 or so.

I love playing the big open world games, but I primarily play on the console for those. I'd look to get back into some fps games or some action games coming soon, hoping to have a bang-for-the-buck type of pc. Would love some feedback on my list right now, thanks everyone!

    Greetings, I don't see really any issues with that parts list. The water cooler is a bit overkill for that processor in all honestly, most people will just use the included cooler or a slightly better air cooler. You could remove the budget for that and put that towards a nicer video card.

We love seeing what our customers build
