factsheet
  • 43 months ago

Budget: £1200

Location: UK

Use: Gaming; World of Warcraft, TW Warhammer, Battlefield 1, GTA V,

Peripherals required: This isn't vital but if somebody could suggest a good set of 5.1 speakers I'd appreciate it

Operating System required:None

Hey all, I'd appreciate any help or info towards a build with my budget. I'm really unsure about what case to get, I've been looking at the NZXT Phantom 630 as I really like how easy cable management seems and the fan controller but I'm not sure if it's overkill as I'm pretty sure I'm not going too need a lot of drives.

Cheers

Not sure if you plan to overclock or not, if you want to, you can boost the CPu a little bit, though if you don't want to you can get the locked version of the CPU to save a little bit.

Thank you!

I think I may have forgotten to mention I don't need an OS. Where would you recommend putting that money, SSD more RAM maybe?

If you are doing editing, rendering, etc I would get more ram, otherwise I'd get a AIO water cooler, like the h100i

if you dropped the speakers you could upgrade to an i7 6700k, but this would be more than adequate
