Best Entry Level Gaming PC (Budget: $1200)

If your wanting to start pc gaming, you should ask yourself. Do I want to get a pc that you wouldn't want to upgrade in the future. Well, my personal opinion is get the best you can so you don't spend more money down the line to upgrade. Get it right the first time. That's why I made this part list.

Wish I knew how to Quote but basically you said "Get it right the first time. That's why I made this part list" just made it better for a similar budget. But if you want to spend $1200 I am sure some one will give you a great build.

I'm confused. Why did you post a $600 build?

Here's a $1200 pure gaming build with high-quality components across the board.

For some reason the part list changed. Sorry for the confusion.

Its not a $1200 build. The motherboard may not be compatible with the CPU out of the box, the cooler is a bad choice and isn't needed, too much for that case, and that PSU is quite a bad choice and you could get better for cheaper. You could also get a better GPU.
