i have filled the form out but if there is anything you need further then ask

What is your budget and currency? 1400 gbp max
Do you need a monitor? yes
Do you need a keyboard? no
Do you need a mouse? no
Do you need an operating system? no
What will you use the PC for? gaming like new bf1(he liked the beta)skyrim, mainly fps or rpg games mainly but with a bit of designing and use of photoshop and cinema 4d and sony vegas

only things he requires is i7 processor,16 gig ram,not interested in overclocking and likes a red/black or red/white colour scheme and preferably a 1070 gpu though he dont know the differences in 1060 and 1070

thanks for taking the time to do it

[url]PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor (£174.90 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: CRYORIG M9i 48.4 CFM CPU Cooler (£15.48 @ Ebuyer) Motherboard: MSI Z170A SLI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£102.79 @ Amazon UK) Memory: Avexir Core Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£61.98 @ Ebuyer) Storage: A-Data Premier SP550 480GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£97.99 @ Amazon UK) Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB SC Gaming ACX 3.0 Video Card (£399.99 @ Amazon UK) Case: Phanteks ECLIPSE P400 ATX Mid Tower Case (£57.27 @ CCL Computers) Power Supply: EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£84.98 @ Novatech) Monitor: Acer XF270HU 27.0" 144Hz Monitor (£389.99 @ Amazon UK) Total: £1385.37[/url]

144Hz 1440p monitor. SLI support so you can easily add a 2nd GTX 1070 at any point, if you want/need. Mostly black/white, but you can set the case LEDs and GPU LEDs to red, and maybe get a red LED strip. Nice big SSD, plenty of RAM, nice little cooler for aesthetic purposes(mostly).

Or, if you're not too bothered about 144Hz;

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£257.00 @ Amazon UK)
CPU Cooler: CRYORIG M9i 48.4 CFM CPU Cooler (£15.48 @ Ebuyer)
Motherboard: MSI Z170A SLI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£102.79 @ Amazon UK)
Memory: Avexir Core Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£61.98 @ Ebuyer)
Storage: A-Data Premier SP550 480GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£97.99 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£57.54 @ CCL Computers)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB SC Gaming ACX 3.0 Video Card (£399.99 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro ATX Full Tower Case (£87.63 @ CCL Computers)
Power Supply: EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£84.98 @ Novatech)
Monitor: AOC Q2577PWQ 25.0" 60Hz Monitor (£229.00 @ Amazon UK)
Total: £1394.38


Cheaper 60Hz 1440p monitor, this allows you to get an HDD as well as SSD, an i7(instead of i5) and a better case within budget. The Enthoo Pro is better than the Eclipse P400(s), but the P400(s) is perfectly fine, and has built in LEDs, the Enthoo Pro doesn't have built in LEDs. The i7 really is not necessary over the i5, at all. The HDD isn't really necessary, unless you feel like you'll need it. Even then, the 480GB SSD would be more than adequate for a while, and an HDD can be added later, at any point.
