What's a good computer for my needs?
Hello everyone!

I'm looking to get a computer and have been researching on parts for the last couple weeks. And I'm absolutely confused. I'm looking for a computer that can handle be used to create games and other applications. I assumed that if I was making a game I should probably go with a gaming system, am I correct? I'm trying to keep my budget within 1300-1400, as I'm thinking that as time progress and parts become outdated I will just buy the parts separately to replace them. I've used the Build to Order System that Canada Computers but would like to know if my current setup will be okay and or should I make some improvements.

Cavalier IGC-I Gaming System

Switch out the motherboard and CPU to a Ryzen 1600 for better value.

Swap out the PSU for something from Corsair or EVGA, like this:

+1, for best value / performance go for AMD Ryzen 6c/12t or 8c/16t. Don't waste your money on i5-6600 quad-core.
