Hi everyone I need help building a rig from scratch for casual gaming. Hearthstone, Dota, League, PUBG. I would require a monitor, keyboard, mouse and OS too. Budget is around $1.5K

Hi all, I'm currently facing issues with my desktop.
Details of my desktop on the right --->
1. Screen freeze
2. Screen black out but PC still running
3. System crash or auto restart
4. Speaker sometimes no sound

Can I rebuild it within $600 but use back my HDDs?
What would be the recommendation to rebuild for 4K movies and Dota2?
Need to purchase new OS right?

GFX card giving way ?
If it was working fine, just buy similar gfx card and continue using.

Does Fortran still sell custom made PC? I bought mine from him years ago and would like to purchase it again. I understand the other alternative is to head down to SLS but that's difficult for me because of my disability.

Hi gurus,

Please recommend a system for basic Internet, music and video use. No need GPU. Budget around $800.

Thank you very much.
