  1. What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using. I’ll only be using this PC for gaming. I got a used powercolor red dragon 6800xt for a great price. I mainly play Tarkov, CoD and a few AAA games.

  2. What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes? ~$1500

  3. When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy. Within the next 2 weeks

  4. **What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? I have a tower (Corsair 5000x) and the gpu already in my possession. Peripherals not required.

  5. Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location? United States, OH. Have a micro center within driving distance that I will be going to.

  6. If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated. Not reusing any parts.

  7. Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU? Not at this time

  8. Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc) The motherboard needs to have WiFi capabilities

  9. Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-tower/full-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components? Black Corsair 5000x already purchased.

  10. Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference? N/A
