I am relatively new to the high end pc gaming scene and am looking for advice on a lasting purchase.

I have a gtx 980 ti to put into said desktop which should help with the narrowing it down, but I am really impressed with the Digital Storm Bolt 3 and the new version of the Origin Chronos.
 


Much much better. Thank you! :)

All those systems are really nice, however you'll save yourself a noticeable amount of money building a rig that is VR ready yourself.

So take a look at this, first off, try buildng your own Chronos in herehttps://www.originpc.com/configurator/c/c4.aspx?SYSTEMID=61 Tell me what the price is.

It would definitely be cheaper to build my own. I'm mostly just afraid of breaking it. Any suggestions on building tutorials?
 
Yes. There are TONS of building guides on youtube.

Go ahead and look up Paul's Hardware on youtube. He has a very good guide on building computers.

You can also look up LinusTechTips for more info aswell.
