    Ive been out of the loop for a few years, i have NO idea whats good hardware and what isnt anymore. I already have peripherals, full tower case, and a monitor. Its currently water cooled but i may stick with air for now. So basically $1000 to spend for OS and the guts... whatcha got?

    What peripherals do you have exactly? $1000 is a pretty good budget and with some of the new stuff out I'm sure we can make you something nice! :)

    Here's a build I did for you, excluding everything you said you already had, and it came up just under $1000. I'm sure this will be able to handle pretty much anything you throw at it.

    Would be a nice system, but a shame its slowed by a HDD.
    If he has drives already maybe we can drop the HDD and use the rest of the budget to get an SSD, now that would reduce his loading times :)

    Good point! Maybe with the amount I had left, a 120gb may fit within the budget, thanks for the tip! :)
