As the title says, my friend wants to build a new computer and has a budget of 800$ dollars. I haven't made any builds in a while so I was wondering if this would be good for running Witcher 3, for that is the main reason he is getting a new computer. He has an extra copy of Windows 8.1 at his house already.
