  1. The computer is multi-function - I will be using it for gaming - I play (or want to play) Star Wars Battlefront 2, EVE, WoW, Star Citizen (someday maybe if they ever finish it) now, but haven't been able to try other titles (including SWBF2) due to current system limitations. It will also be used for "household" stuff such as MS Office-type applications Quicken, etc. There will also be limited-to-moderate video and picture editing via Adobe Creative Suite.
  2. There are tons of these I see on here, but all are relatively unique. As such, I am posting... I am looking to build a new custom PC for gaming. I am looking to balance performance & functionality as well as future-proofing (if such a thing is possible) against budget. I am trying to keep the system under $3,000. I have done a bit of research into things like processors, gpu, cpu, boards, etc., but truth-be-told, I don't know anywhere near enough to be confident in what I set up. As such, if you could look at the build below and provide any feedback, I would appreciate it.
