As title says I'm from Bolivia. Prices here always high here, but due to the pandemic, they are ridiculously high, more than double the original price. Having said that I had never built a PC or even bought one just by myself, so this would be the first one, I saved up to $1500 (I could go a little higher than that). I feel right now is the perfect time since new GPUs got released, and I have a relative traveling to Miami and he could bring it to me, or meybe ship it from there. (I wouldn't order it online since thay charge you taxes as if you would be selling laptops, and it's cheaper to buy to local stores who charge double the price, than ordering it)
>>What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Mainly gaming, I will use it to work with Office and some work related stuff, nothing too demandant, I would also be rendering and editing videos if possible, and learning some basic graphic design, but that would be just a hobby, as I said it would be mainly gaming .
>What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
My budget is $1500 I could go a little higher, but I also have to cover some shipping so not too much over that.
>When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
As far as I now they will be traveling in about two weeks, and they will be there a week or so, so it would be mid february.
>**What, exactly, do you need included in the budget?
I'd rather having all included, since prices here are insane, I'd love to buy a pair of headphones to since there's not much to choose here.
>Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
They will be buying on Miami, I don't really now where to get it though, any tips apreciated!
>If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Since it's my first PC I don't have any parts.
>Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
I would be interested down the line.
>*Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)... keep reading on reddit ➡

6th-8th in Sucre

10th-17th in Cusco
18th & 19th in Lima
20th I fly back
A couple last notes:
I want to make Uyuni Salt Flats work in La Paz if there's any realistic way to do that. Not sure how, as of now, though. I technically get to La Paz on the 1st, at 10PM, so I'm trying to see if there's any way I can go for just the 2nd and 3rd, and either come back that night, or take an overnight and be back in La Paz by the morning of the 4th.
Secondly, a lot of people have suggested Colca Canyon while I'm in Arequipa, and I could make that work, but I think I'd rather spend the full day one the 28th in Arequipa since it's Independence Day in Peru. I could do just the 26th and 27th, but you get into Colca Canyon at around 3:30 P.M., so you don't have time that day to really hike, and I don't think it's worth the 10+ hours round bus trip just for one day of hiking.
I would really love some suggestions, idea, criticisms, etc. Thanks so much!
