It would help if you told what you have now.

But basically, for a new build, here's a rough sketch:
  • Intel i5 @ 3.5 GHz or so
  • 8 GB of RAM, 16 if you feel like it
  • Nvidia GTX 1070 or higher - that's the most crucial part!
  • a good quality power supply
  • the rest - a hard disk, a case, fans, optical drive, input devices, operating system...
Quote from: BaldEagl, applies to myself, too
I've got an older system by today's standards that still runs the game well by my standards.
