Hello everyone. I'm usually a console gamer (still am to an extent) but I'm seriously thinking about building a gaming rig in the coming months because why not.

So how good of a rig can I build for about $800-900? I wanna be able to run games on high settings with little to no problems. Is that possible or do I need to drop a grand or more on it?

I take it you need everything? Monitor, Windows, Keyboard and mouse?

Of course if you don't want to build your own. It will be more expensive. I could make it cheaper by cutting parts back.

If you have a TV you don't really need a monitor. Also you can get windows for cheaper if you're a student in college or know someone that is.

So that would drop the price about $200 to your original target.

With this setup tho you can run almost any game on max settings so it would be above your expectations.

If the TV is SPVA or IPS then yes. If it's MVA it will look like crap. also you need 1080p and hdmi.
