I tend to overdo it when I build my own lists. I'm not necessarily looking to get into 4k gaming, but I want to be able to play anything at max settings at ~60fps. I play MMOs, MOBAs, and basically everything else old and new alike. I'm pretty lazy so I want to just slide the graphics settings up all the way and be done with it lol. (If you're curious to see what I put together: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BhWhZL)
Use: Mainly gaming, but looking to get into video editing/photoshop/etc.
Peripherals required: Monitor. This is the part I have the hardest time deciding on. I want a monitor that is optimized for gaming, but is flexible as far as ports are concerned. I don't like to be limited with such an important piece to the puzzle. Ideally 24" unless you can find a decently priced ultra wide that will take up my entire desk..
Operating System required: Windows 8.1
-no mini atx builds -windowed cases only -prefer an all black scheme/black and blue if doable
