Hello!

New here but heard some good things about the site so thought I'd check it out!

I've been PC gaming for about 5 years, but never been able to afford a decent PC, having to make do with computers that now struggle to play the most generic of games (LoL, CSGO, Skyrim, H1Z1). Since finishing uni and getting a job, I now finally have the money to afford a decent-ish PC! Woohoo! But have less time to play on it.

Anyway, looking for a decent build in relation to my budget;

Budget: About £900-£1000 Location: UK Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Would like a build for gaming- main games I play are League of Legends, H1Z1, CounterStrike: Global offensive but generally would like a PC that can run most high-end games. Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Peripherals aren't a priority but if someone can suggest a fairly decent monitor and/or keyboard then that would be great! Operating System required: Windows 7 or 10 standard are fine.

This will also be my first time building a PC so if anyone has any tips/ can direct me to a good guide then that would be really helpful :)

Cheers -C

Slightly over budget but looks great has a monito,r keyboard, mouse and OS.

Black colour scheme with a blue led cpu cooler.

Latest skylake i5 6600k

16gb of ram though this is overkill for gaming so you could save about £35 by going with 8gb.

120gb ssd and 1tb hdd.

A low temp sapphire r9 390 nitro which (runs cooler than equivalent 970s even when both are overclocked), also the 390 and 390x have been proven to only have 1-5 fps difference so you save about £80 without any performance loss.

Nice nzxt case.

Windows 10.

2ms response time 1080p monitor.

Keyboard and mouse bundle nothing too fancy but get the job done.
