Hello. I'm new to PC building, and the last computer I purchased was a pre-assembled Republic of Gamers laptop in 2016. It still performs okay, but in order to get a reasonable performance on games like Destiny 2, I have to lower the in game resolution to 720p (it's a 1080p monitor). It's got technology from 2014 (ex. GTX 970) and I've been seriously considering an upgrade. However, since I've decided to throw myself back into the world of computers, I need a good point of comparison to inform my later builds.
This is my first build, and I need to know what it's capabilities are.
I do not intend to build this at all, but I need to know what I can cut down on to make a computer that can reasonably run most games on high settings.
TL;DR Is this build overkill for running games like Destiny 2 on high settings and 1080p resolutions?
