I have never built a pc before, I do not have great knowledge of pc building and pc parts however I do really have a love for gaming. I played on my brothers old pc when I was a kid then moved to console for ease of use for my age. I'm coming up to 24 now and I earn a good wage so wanted to splash out on a pc.

I have been looking around and I'm not sure what I'm looking at half the time so help would be appreciated. I have a large budget, go hard attitude.

I found this completed build and have added parts that pcpartpicker.co.uk had prices for, there seems to be no incompatibilities. Any advice on whether these parts go well together and what settings this will play games at?

I would also like it if you could maybe update any parts with newer more dated variants as this idea is from an old build I believe.

My budget is around what this comes too but if it can be reduced without hindering performance that would be fab.

I will be using this PC for gaming and all other general tasks like Web browsing, movies etc.

If I could run it at like 1440p that would be great, obviously 60fps prefers. I'm from the UK.
