Am looking to buld myself my first gaming pc. I have no idea where to start what parts to look for or what.

I want to be able to play all current games highest settings possible. things like witcher 3, Fall out and then many other games like H1z1 I'm Pretty much an all around gamer.

I don't really have a budget but I would like for it all to cost around £1200 but it can go over but I much rather it be less! I will need everything from a screen to a key board but these can be cheap and ill upgrade it at a later stage.

I've Heard from some friends that I should not have an AMD Graphics card but this means nothing to me hope someone can help

Cheers

Replace the R9 390 with a GTX 970 if you want NVIDIA. They perform about the same at 1080p.
