$900 - $1100 (AUD) Gaming PC :)

Hey, so i'm looking to build a gaming PC in the near future. The pc will be used to mainly play games like CSGO, Gmod, Far Cry, The division, GTA, Battlefield... so basically some simple easy to run games and some slightly more intensive games. If possible it would be good if the PC could run them at 60+ fps on high or even ultra settings :)

  • Use: Gaming!
  • Location: Australia
  • Price: $900 - $1100, i can allow for a bit over; like $50
  • Peripherals: NONE NEEDED , but i'm planing to get a ~$500 g-sync or Free sync monitor

Feel free to ask any questions, and i'm sorry if i don't answer them straight away.

Thanks for your help :)

A few things to consider. The i3 instead of going to an i5 might limit you in the future(2-3 years). But by upgrading to an i5, you will have to drop performance by dropping to a 380 which will hurt you in performance quite a bit. i3/390 outperforms an i5/380 in every game out.

Also, you might not need the extra 1TB and want to use that money to double your SSD size or upgrade another item in the build. I didn't include an OS, or an Optical drive either as mostly everything is downloaded and windows can very easily be installed with a USB drive. Also, I don't know your thoughts on the case, so I just threw an expensive but quality case in there as a starter. Any questions?
