you'll want to hit up the create a part list for me section of the website, bunch of helpful folks over there.

To help with the parts recommendation, a few questions:

Gaming only? (not streaming?)

$$$ = USA, CAD, AUS, etc?

Just the tower or do you require other peripherals too? (eg. Display, mouse, keyboard, etc)

If display is required, what is your preferred gaming resolution? (1080p, 1440p, 4K - maybe widescreen?)

Operating system required?

Hi out if interest what monitor resolution and refresh rate do you have? I see some high powered GPU builds here which would be a bit wasted on a 1080p 60Hz screen.

if you don't know anything (which is okay-almost everyone on this site was there once, where you are) then i'm going to assume you need just about everything. opt for something worth its money though, and don't pay $500 or $100 for a 1% increase in performance, and not too much since everything will get replaced sooner or later. there is always going to something new next year, so don't go so high end (especially on a first build).

this is what i recommend: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/HvZKQZ

everything you need for pretty good gaming setup.

The build looks great so far, but I should have mentioned I live is AUS, and some of those parts I cant get. Also I don't need screen, mouse or any of the accessories, just the tower. Can you edit the build please?

oh , i see

okay, then - what monitor do you have?

i'll try to make something that will be able to compliment your monitor well

in the meantime, i made something similar to the first list i gave you, but adapted for australia: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/NKQ2GG

If you want cheaper then change the CPU to the i5-9600K and if even cheaper then the GPU to the RTX 2070.
