$2800 Gaming PC for Fallout 4

Hi everyone. I love Fallout 4 and am currently playing it on PS4. I would enjoy it more though with 60 FPS and access to console commands. Which is why I would like to buy a gaming computer.

I would use the computer only for playing Fallout 4, browsing reddit and watching Youtube videos. I would like to have Windows 10 with Office programs. The PC should have 0% problem to run Fallout 4 on 1080p 60FPS and the FPS should stay very stable.

I am looking for a complete list of pc specs as well as monitor, mouse, keyboard, headset and whatever else you recommend. My budget is around $2800 (€2000-2500).

Thank you so much in advance!

I agree with postman. A 1000$ machine most likely can run at 1080p 60fps easy. However, I built one around your suggested price range, being able to max out Fallout 4 at 1440p with 60 fps. I can personally vouch for the mouse, the keyboard, and the headset, they are quality for cheap. I included an optical drive which allows you to install windows, and windows office. I probably should've put in more storage, but the SSD I have chosen is very good, and the HDD should be enough to store your games. Hope I helped!!!

This is 1440p @ 165 refresh rate. As others have said, it is far more than you need.

Thanks for the advice. How much $ should you recommend? I would install a few mods though on FO4 but mainly armour mods, no graphics mods.
