I want a computer with at least:
- 16 GB RAM,
- 1 or more 1 TB Hard Drive,
- 1 Solid State with 256 GB or more,
- No taller than 20", and no wider than a foot,
- A KEYBOARD(sorry lol) WITH the volume up/ down/ mute buttons and the number pad,
- A mouse,
- Windows 8.1, or 10 whenever that comes out,
- I already got a monitor
- andddd, a CPU (AMD or Intel, idk which is better for gaming) with at least 3.0 GHz
- No more than $1, 500, maybe $2,000, that's the MAX

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

How much FPS do you think I'd get from this?
Thanks, also, does the amount of memory a graphics card has affect it?

OP, I suggest you wait less than two weeks for Intel to launch its new Skylake CPUs. I'll come back (on my own Skylake machine ) and put together a parts list for you then.

Most people get an insane amount of hard drive memory and RAM.. It's not really necessarry. (16gb is fine, not too much like people said, but 3 tb is insane. I use like 10gb out of my 200 SSD)

Also, a 2.5GHz CPU should work just as well and be a lot cheaper. I use an AMD 8-core 4.5 GHz (tho I only get 2.8) processor that was only 250$.

As for video cards, I'd recommend an AMD Raedon

NamezNo need for that much ram, no need for that PSU, overpriced and bad GPU, overpriced mobo, no need for a 512gb ssd and a 3tb hdd.


again, I built this for myself.. which it does exactly as it needs to.
-I've maxed out the 32gb of memory and hit the page file before
-My total storage on this computer is about 70% full (and i've recently added 2TB onto it.. lol)
-The PSU is there so I can eventually do crossfire if i chose to do so (or for other upgrades/add ons i may want to do)
-I really can't complain about the card considering the gtx 970 is about the same cost and has roughly the same performance (http://www.hwcompare.com/18034/geforce- ... on-r9-290/)

and lastly, it's a really simple task to just slim down what I have and cut the cost by about 500$, which Does come under the OP's budget of 1500$ and does not sacrifice any performance.

higher clock speed typically means more performance per application, and more cores typically mean more applications that can share the benefit of the high clock speed. which is completely irrelevant if the application is designed to take advantage of the multiple cores (which is usually 2 or 4 depending on the application, never ran across anything for 8+) Furthermore Intel completely throws the core thing out the window by adding hyperthreading, so 1 core = 2 logical cores, which for the most part, act and perform just like 2 normal cores. anywho, moving on...

I thought my PC build was relevent so here you go

A higher CPU clock frequency does not mean a higher performance. You'll have a quality mobo with a great fan, so you'll be able to overclock it without a problem (the mobo has the Z97 chipset, which is a great chipset for gaming & overclocking). The PSU is fully modular, so the cable management will be easier and cleaner. NZXT makes quality cases, and it looks sexy! For the keyboard, I choose a mechanical keyboard, and from what I saw from the pictures, it has volume buttons.

Sufficient enough until Skylake and NVidia's next line of GPUs come out. Also overclockable. A keyboard with your needs shouldn't be hard to find.

Here is a non overclocking build,
Should run great!

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xvPgf7

PS: The gpu might get hot, and i didnt look at the case size.
PS 2: The ram might be expensive but it has low cas latency. Also the case had alot of good reviews so thats why i selected an expensive one.
