I've been digging through old forum post on this site and others, guides, and current prices for PC components. It's been a long time since I've built a gaming PC but I am currently saving up as I am ready to dive back into PC gaming.
My question is as the title suggests, how much is needed to build a serious gaming PC that will run the newest titles on high settings for a couple of years? I've seen a wide variety of budgets and nice builds but I wanted a general feel for how much you would spend if you were building a PC with no parts besides a monitor/keyboard/mouse. I'm thinking $1,000.
