After the successful build of PC for my son I am now looking to build gaming PC for myself. Looking to play MGS 5, Crysis 3 and few others at highest resolution possible. Will need monitor and Windows 7 also

Thanks

Have you thought about playing games at 2560 x 1080?

What about overclocking, SSD's etc..?

1080p and higher if possible.

SSD is not essential but happy to consider. Not particularly bothered about OC

i myself was in a (well actually still am) dilemma between whether to get 1440p@60hz or 1080p@144hz (exact same price) with this build. I think im sticking with the 144hz one because I tend to play more fast-paced games/twitch games e.g. csgo, cod, and other shooters/3rd person. I see myself tending to turn down graphics to get as high an fps as possible (ask yourself if you do the same thing). IN THIS CASE, the GPU i listed will be more than sufficient.

if you see yourself turning graphics up at the expense of fps - or only play slow paced games (idk how one ONLY plays slow paced single player games, the most popular games ie. ones people spend the most time on are more twitch based) or specifically world of warcraft, then go with the higher res monitor. However you will find yourself largely exceeding your budget because you WILL NEED THE TOP GPU to play 4K next-gen titles at playable rates, and 1440p at >60fps. the R9 390 listed can play 1440p next gen games @~40fps, you will have to compromise graphics to get >50.

but odds are, this is more than sufficient for every task you can possibly think of. there is also a considerable margin to EASILY OVERCLOCK your CPU for future demands, but at this time you don't need to worry yet. GPU as well a fair bit, not much though. when it's winter in UK you will be more than capable to do so, IT'S FREE PERFORMANCE don't shrug it off like it's nothing or youre not interested. Also consider what youll be doing in the future as well (if this build is SPECIFICALLY for gaming then dont worry).

price NOT including MONITOR. you can get windows keys for like $15

this is in AUD. Only = 750 GBP . for higher resolution games just get a 980 Ti EVGA 06G-P4-4995-KR for 520 pounds. this can handle 1440p at 60fps ultra and at 4K ~35-40fps high-very high i think, look at benchmarks

You will want monitors starting at around 185GBP (1440p IPS@60hz or 1080p@144hz). 4K just isn't practically possible with your budget if including price of the monitor. (UNLESS you play low demand games e.g. most eSport titles such as CS:GO, LoL, DoTA2, starcraft etc, BUT even then a professional would play on a 144hz/1ms response time monitor over anything else)

Is 1000 including the monitor? If not this should hold up well since oc isn't a concern. If you make a compromise on the CPU (drop to 1150 socket maybe 4690 or1231 xeon if same price & then ram decreases in price), change in cpu cooler could save, could go to a 970, 390, 980, or 390x, and then you should be good.

Well here's a build with a monitor again, used the build above my post as a base although this one is more drastically changed.

Edited because xeon isn't worth it neither is 144hz
