    Default New gaming pc

    Hey guys, looking at building a new PC and was wanting to get some ideas on what you guys think would be both affordable and close to a top line PC. Would love to play basically all the best games on high + settings and to get over 15 fps on arma 3.
    If you could post what you think would be best .
    Thankyou

    Sorry no one replied but the reality is, no one can answer that. You said you want to game but you failed to provide a budget. "Affordable" is a relative term and "affordable and close to a top line PC" is an oxymoron for many.

    Top gaming rigs can easily cost $4000, $5000 or more! Is that "affordable" to you?

    The top gaming rigs require at least one "high-end" graphics card. "Serious gamers" often use 2 or even 3 "high-end" graphics cards. Is a "top" graphics card like the EVGA 12G-P4-3992-KR GeForce GTX TITAN Z in your budget? Including the 700W recommended "minimum" PSU to power it?

    $3000+ for just the graphics a bit too much? What about something a little less expensive like the AMD Radeon R9 295X2? Or two?
