I am a uni student, recently I have become interested in PC builds, I have decide after graduating and finding a job. I will be putting my Xbox console to one side and investing in my 1st PC build, I have realised games are cheaper on the PC, and I actually prefer playing them on a computer.
In summary I want my build mainly to allow me to play my favourite games such as Dragon Age Inquisition, GTA V, Elder Scrolls Online...
I have done as much research to my abilities but I am a complete newbie, therefore it would be nice to get some advice in case I am not spending enough or I am going over the top for what I want to use my PC for.
Thank you :) Part List Edit
