I'm looking to build a PC ($700 - 1000), and was wondering what would be a good build for gaming?

You have the audacity to make a shitty thread such as this one on a generally high-quality board because you are too incompetent to research for yourself? You should be ashamed.

1. From what I can infer from this thread, you did absolutely no research beforehand, and you expect us to feed you information.
2. You didn't clarify what games/software you desire to install on the computer, for all I know, you might want a 1000$ computer to play fucking Minecraft.
3. This is blatant consumerism, you are giving these corporations money so you can be entertained for a brief amount of time by games that exist solely to product profits (What games require a 1000$ PC...)
4. You made this thread on a medium that disregards games for the most part, this thread would be much more successful on a medium such as 4chan's /g/ or 8chan.
5. This is my opinion for the most part, but the image you included is one of the worst "memes" I have experienced in recent times that is particularly popular among immature teenagers and normies.

>LOL I WUZ JUST TROLLIN XDDDDD TROLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
I hope you can cope with the fact that your life is limited, yet you decided to spend your time creating this thread instead of participating in better activities that would (probably) make you more happy and content with your existence.

So be it, if an individual such as yourself cares not about learning, they shall not be taught.

>Back to 8chan
It is you that needs to go back.

I wouldn't mind libre games as long as they aren't shit.

>>11469
I wouldn't mind windows for gaming and Linux for regular shit. But I read GPU passthrough through requires two GPUs so I would need to dual boot

>brainlet doesn't know that there's GPU sufficent for window managers and watching 10-bit mongolian slide shows in 3840p HEVC in every Intel processor today
>he didn't even research about skylake engineering samples that cost 1/2 of retail versions
back to 8chan, nigger

Summary of actual info in this thread:

1. pcpartpicker.com

2. tech contains hostile douchebags who need more bran in their diet

So, does an SSD actually make a damned bit of difference *during gameplay* for any popular games? If one doesn't give a shit about boot or load times, is skipping the SSD and going with the classic bigger, cheaper, mechanical hard drive in a gaming rig the way to go?

Depends on your ram space and your setup. I don't think you get a choice on windows, but on GNU/Linux you can have no swap space in which case it makes no difference but you need enough RAM. Can also depend on the game with level loads. Short answer, it makes a difference. A noticeable difference? Depends.

It pretty depends on what type of games you play as you can save money here or there by buying specific parts that will be used heavily in those games. For example, if you like to play games like Total War, you might want to get a Ryzen 5 or 7 as the threading and price will help out immensely. Those games don't really put a dent in your GPU as much as other games. If you want to play FPS' in 4K or whatnot I'd recommend spending more on the GPU and sticking with a modern intel quad core and something like a 1070 or even a 1080 if you can manage.

Another thing. I'd recommend to get a small 80-120 gig SSD to store your OS and other files and go for a 50 buck 1tb hdd for your video games. Most video games will take a lot longer to load as you're moving the data off of the platter but if you have enough RAM to handle the game's cache you're A OK. Honestly anything over 8G is enough in terms of RAM. If you can squeeze it out try getting mid priced memory modules and overclock them just a bit from there. The reason you want 8 gigs or more is because games (and most programs now) often cache the game's files in memory directly as memory is the second fastest thing you can retrieve your delicious bits from (the next up being your CPU's caches).
