Budget - Around $3000

Location - NYC

Use - Gaming and streaming

Operating System required - Windows 10

Peripherals required - Two monitors (one high refresh for gaming, other for regular use), webcam, mic (I'll be buying the arm on a separate budget), and headset (preferably wireless).

I'll be streaming Overwatch mainly and playing other things like WoW, Diablo 3/4, CoD, Halo, Battlefield, etc on occasion.

Thanks dude! First thoughts, what if we went down to one 144hz monitor and one 60hz. Is there a brand/model with identical physical shape but different refresh rates? If so, where would the money saved go into the build?

If we went down to one 144Hz panel + a 60Hz panel, you could get a much more balanced list

That would sound good i'm just not used to the usd prices and trying to get back into Pc's. Keep the dell 144hz monitor as it's a good monitor with great refresh rate and 1ms response time, for the 60hz one i think you should get this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Nk648d/asus-monitor-vc239h. If you don't like the dell one look at asus and benq as they both make really good monitors.

Thanks, Smithy
