    I'm looking to build my own computer in the future, and I want to see. I want a computer that's powerful enough to handle a bunch of games and such, do you guys think you could help me out maybe?

    Probably start with a $700 budget, and if you can save more money by the time you want to start building, that's even better. Are you gonna need any peripherals (monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc.)?

    So around 800?

    How much would it take to run on semi-high settings and maybe 2nd to max res?

    Edited:

    I was thinking of building the main computer and saving the speakers, monitor, keyboard, and mouse until I get a bit more money.

    That really depends, would you be able to reuse anything in your current computer? What are your current specs?

    nothing reusable in that I'd imagine so you'd have to probably spend about 700-800 at minimum, though around 1000 would be a lot better
