Hey there I am new to building computers, I am not too sure if I should be getting a $500.00 CAD or $1200.00 CAD computer. Location: Canada B.C. I play CS:GO, Overwatch, DayZ, also will be using it for school work. OS and Sound Card needed. No Monitor, keyboard, or mouse needed.

Why do you need a sound card? Nowadays, the motherboard's onboard audio codecs are strong enough for 95% of applications.

Otherwise, here is a really solid build for gaming at 1080p. 144Hz and higher-res are out of the price range for sure. If max settings aren't a big priority, then you can scale back on the GPU to save some money, as well as on the case and SSD
