Again, I appreciate all the info guys. Two things I’ve realized is I think what I want to build is going to be closer to 1k with peripherals and I’m going to be patient and wait for prices to come down.

This may be a curveball but what about a laptop? I’m guessing you lose quite a bit of performance for the price. Just a thought though.

You'll pay more for less performance in a laptop

They are notorious for skimping on the graphics and some may try to saddle you with older mechanical hard drives over the much faster SSD's of today

Ya I have had a few gamming laptops and I kinda regret each one. Right now I have a Razor Blade (2016) it has a GTX 1060, 16 gigs of ddr4 and a 512GB NVMe drive. The battery life is about 5 minutes. A gamming laptop is luxury item, you will pay more for less because its mobile. The kicker is that its not really that mobile because you kinda need to be plugged in when gamming. I mean you can try to game for a little while but the battery will drain very fast. Gamming laptops are good for students who are living in a dorm and dont have space for a desktop. Maybe you want to play games at work but not on the company PC. I got the razor blade to play games in hotels since I travel all over the country spring to fall for softball. I never recommend a gamming laptop unless the person has specific needs that only a laptop can satisfy.

@Anthony Martino and I seem to share a brain when it comes to PC's. I will say that he is far more artistic than I am when it comes to building cool looking PC's. Mine are cool looking but he brings it to the next level. Post some pics of your projects so we can drool.
