Build Guide – April 2016 (APRIL FOOLS!)

Welcome to the April 2016 version of our build guides. As always, we have implemented hard price limits ($500, $800, $1300, $1800) on ourselves and have had to make tough decisions with each build. Your personal budget will likely be flexible, but we hope this will give you a baseline. You can of course spend more or spend less, but you run into a case of diminishing returns at either end. Please keep in mind that pricing information is immediate and may not necessarily reflect real prices by the time you have read this article.

PC GAMING IS DEAD. Just remember our YouTube channel is available for box for box / sub for sub. Dual Comms with Scott cost extra.
