    I've been out of touch with computers, so I have no idea what to get. About the only thing I would be using it for would be gaming. Go!

    That's about $1500 with the Gigabyte board.
    You would still need a case, keyboard mouse, but if you can
    use a few parts from your old build you would be good to go.
