Hi guys so im looking to upgrade from console gaming to pc gaming. I dont know if im posting this in the right section because I do need a parts list but really I need advice on how to build my first PC and which components are best suited for me. I really have no idea on what parts to get or how they fit together. I have a couple of questions though! My budget is £1000 up to £1500gbp although I am willing to put a little more in as I am planning on buying the parts a few months as I save up money. I am looking to play the latest games on close to max graphics as I can on a pc monitor and a large tv with a xbox controller when Im just chilling with mates. Any advice would be much appreciated, any articles that I can read on building would be great as im sure I have lots of research to do and a rough idea of a parts list would be awesome!
1) Where do I start (lol) in what sort of order should I be looking at components wise? 2) I like the idea of buying a single graphics card that is capable of playing games at console level and above, and then later installing another graphics card to boost the graphics to around max, is this a good idea? And would I be looking at something like an evga nvidia gtx980ti? 3) What kind of processor would I need? I personally would like an intel graphics card, is this the best choice for me and would I be looking at an i5 or an i7? 4) Do I need to liquid cool my pc or is this too expensive for my requirements and is this possible to install as an upgrade?
Thanks for looking! :)
