Building a PC always comes down to your requirements and the most key thing is having hardware that can easily be updated and upgraded. You want to make it as future proof as possible. And depending on what games you play deciding if you're going to go for a Intel/Nvidia build or a simple AMD.

SSD is in no way necessary for playing RS, or really anything, it just makes load times and boot up much quicker. It's paying for convenience if you're just buying a PC to mainly scape on. Specs look good man, I've built my last 4 pc's and would love to help anybody out if they have any other questions as well. I also know of some sites with some great barebones kits to get Ya started!

Not to bust yours, but if you read the last bit of my post you'll see that I addressed everyone, making the current life status of the OP only relevant to the bit where I was giving my opinion.

RIP OP

i7's actually don't provide a very noticable increase in performance over i5's (in terms of gaming), and most games don't utilize the hyperthreading that i7's have. Performance is usually going to be bottlenecked by the GPU and any money that you would spend upgrading to an i7 would be better spent on just getting a better GPU.

1.7k way too much. spend 800 and you'll be playing every game on 60 fps max settings no problems for 5 years.

Even though the OP is dead this thread has been gravedug so I may aswell get started.

 

Some of you don't know what the fuck you're talking about or are just being purposely vague. Firstly you aren't going to spend $800 and get a PC that will play every game on 60 FPS max settings without any problem for 5 years, that's bull shit. Battlefield 4 requires at least a GeForce 600 series card and a quad core processor and that games 2 years old. For runescape yes this is fine but you talked about every game and although you might know what you mean by it someone who's about to lay down almost $1000 may not.

 

As for the whole "Get an i7" it's an ignorant comment without really helping the OP find what he's look for. If he searches on Newegg this is what he'll come across

You'll get something similar when you search for i5 too so it's a vague answer and if the guy asking for help is a noob he's not going to have a clue what he's looking for. What will help is If you recommend the i7xyz which is a quad core processor with a decent clock speed that's also latest gen so it doesn't bottleneck so easily in comparison to the slightly more powerful graphics card that you/someone else has just recommended. You could also recommend the i7xyzk for an extra $20 because of it's overclocking capabilities, but if he isn't planning on overclocking it he could go back to your initial suggestion.

 

I don't understand the logic behind people recommending against an SSD either. SSD's make little difference to RS, true. However, this is a PC he's going to be using almost every day for at least the next 2-3 years and the chances are he's going to use his brand spanking new PC for more than just runescape. I noticed huge differences when I was running my steam games from my HDD and then from my SSD, load times matter. With a budget of $1,000 there's definitly room to slide a 256gb SSD in there without sacrificing too much performance.
