Hey all, I currently run on an 5 year old laptop which just isn't up to par. It's struggling to do what I need from it. I'm looking to upgrade to a real desktop PC but I'm pretty clueless as to what I need to buy. Here's what I want to do with the PC:
- Play online MMOs with friends
- Record gameplay videos, probably using FRAPS or similar program.
- Create youtube videos. I run a youtube channel. Currently I use Windows Movie Maker and I want a PC that can efficiently convert the files to proper youtube high resolution format (it takes my current computer several hours if not all night to convert these files).
- Stream on Twitch. I want to stream mainly PC games but also some Wii U games.
My budget is flexible, but I'm envisioning spending somewhere in the $600-$900 range. Also I don't need a monitor or any accessories. I was looking at these today: Revolt: iBUYPOWER® Gaming PC
I know I need atleast 8 GB of RAM, but as far as everything else I'm clueless. Any help, tips and suggestions are appreciated. I don't know my way around inside a CPU at all, so I'd really like to buy something pre-built. If building one isn't too difficult I'd consider it.
