    I have a question for all of you that are into building PCs, PC parts, etc. I'm thinking about getting a gaming PC finally in about a month. My budget is $2,000 for it and my buddy said to look at iBuyPower. What would be the best PC for $2k? To the point where I wont have to worry about upgrading it for a bit. Keep in mind, i'm going to use it to simply play games on it. So none of that recording videos and shit, just simply gaming. Im just not into PCs like that so im not sure which one to get. Any help?

    My main concern is, would I be able to run game with no issues at all with that setup? And not have to worry about upgrading it for a bit


    even the $750 one would run em good. they wouldnt be noticable at 1080p

    Well, i'm a little broke after that purchase, not going to lie. Lmao. I think I only have like $200 left in my bank account and all my bills are coming up in about 2 weeks. Would it be bad if I just get a cheap monitor for now and then buy a 4K one later? I was looking at iBuyPowers monitors and they low key fuck people in the ass with their prices. Look at this:

    I can get the same exact monitor for cheaper and have it in about 2days, with free shipping from Wal-Mart. Like, dafuq?
