These are my current specs.

RAM: 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 534MHz (8-8-8-20) (Corsair Vengeance Black)
Motherboard: MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL CO.,LTD 870-C45 (MS-7599) (CPU 1)
Graphics: 1080A (1920x1080@60Hz) ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series (XFX Pine Group)
Hard Drives: 156GB Seagate ST3160812AS ATA Device (SATA)
488GB Hitachi Hitachi HDP725050GLA360 ATA Device (SATA)

Need a few details. What you intend on doing with the PC, and your budget. Then we can cater to your needs.
If you are a gamer, I'm going to say the CPU and probably GPU.

Need Descent and Mechwarrior buddies!
If I helped you, give a thanks! ↓
