Depends on what's included in that $1000. This may be a good place to start: https://classic.pric...?showtopic=2068, then once we know what to include in that price we can get into choosing parts.

I may occasionally give advice regarding (consumer) law, but it is only my opinion based on my reading – I am not a lawyer.

For under $1k with monitor and so on you're not going to get anything fancy.

 

I'd strongly recommend an ex-lease desktop for $300 – $350, an ex-lease monitor for $160, a GPU for $250 – $350, a 250 GB SSD for under $120, and a keyboard and mouse combo $20 – $30, probably all from PB Tech (definitely the ex-lease stuff), totalling $820 – $1020. However, overclocking is out and the window is out.

 

If you wanted to build something in that price bracket, you'd be looking at the same prices as above for the monitor, GPU, SSD and keyboard / mouse, and adding a case ($50 – $100), power supply ($60 – $70), CPU ($100 – $180), mobo ($100 – $120), RAM ($80 – $130) and operating system ($180). That works out to a total of $570 – $750 ($390 – $570 excluding OS) to replace the $300 – $350 ex-lease desktop. The low end of the custom build would be worse than the older machine while a comparable build would be about $450 + OS. Oh, and that's completely ignoring any optical drive or HDD that one of those desktops come with. But you could have your window, and probably overclocking as well.

Ahaha im not good with a budget. Planned on using up to $1700, instead became $2700. Peripherals and monitors included since its my first PC, i made a dumb decision of not getting a IPS monitor.
