Hi everyone,

I have never tried to do anything else before this, but I've been quite a while without a PC and I am in need of one. Is there anything that could make it better (surely there will be)? Also, would it be possible to lower the price of the build maybe to 800-900 pounds without making that much of a difference in what it can do? Please feel free to comment as I don't know what I am doing.

Do you need a 1070? could a 1060 do the job for you.

Hi there! Thank you for replying.

I guess I was looking at the 1070 since everyone I have talked to has pointed me in that direction. I am looking for the build to be somewhat solid and to last a few years and what people have told me is that with the 1070 will last more and that the 1060 which won't handle the games that are being released.
