Started off with a simply budget build. Haven't built a Gaming PC in 5 years. Last PC was custom water cooled loop that cost me $5000. Traveled the last decade and never used my custom gaming pc builds in the past. They just went to waste would end up selling them for cheap. Finally upgrading from my macbrook pro retina ($3500) and surface pro 3 i7 ($2000). The PS4 Pro and Xbox one s just upgraded too from ps4 and xbox one to go with my Samsung 4k 65ks8000 ( bought it the day it came out) and 4k bluray player. The tv makes graphics look great but its just not as smooth i would like, with the details you get from a pc. Figured it was finally time get back into pc gaming and build new gaming rig.
