I don't know a lot about computers. I need a gaming computer anywhere between $2000-$3000, can I get some help/builds please.
you'll want to hit up the create a part list for me section of the website, bunch of helpful folks over there.
This topic has been moved from "Hardware > Other" to "Systems > Create A Part List For Me".
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?
just the tower
don't need an operating system
cheers for the help
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:
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.

For pure gaming a very good PC.
I dont think that cooler will even cool the processor under load. Intel list the TDP at 95 watts but they use the TDP from the stock speed the watts go up in turbo mode. The Z370 board will probably need a BIOS update to work with that processor.
If It can keep a 8600k cool, it can keep the 9600k cool. I just wanted something to be as close to the €3000 budget as possible, it can be replaced. And an update shouldn’t deter you from buying a Z370 board.
It's not a big deal to update BIOS as long as you have a processor that works with the BIOS the motherboard has already.
That case also comes with 0 fans installed, sorry just not a well put together build.
This is not a personal attack just my opinion.
well it's a wrong opinion.
You have a motherboard that will not work with the processor unless you pay somebody with a processor that works with it to update it and the case has no fans for cooling along with a borderline CPU cooler.
Opinions are never wrong, you may not agree with them but they aren't wrong
Sorry I should have mentioned I live in AUS and that build costs $4098.28, could you redo/check the build please
