Hello everyone, I've been thinking a lot about building a PC recently but honestly i'm not sure where to start!

It will be used for various games (MMOs, FPS' and RPGs) and possibly recording/editing videos at some point down the line!

I've used PCPartPicker to build one and would just like to get some advice/opinions on it!

If someone could also recommend a decent monitor for 200GBP or less then that would appreciated!

Cheers
Hudson

Budget?
Aesthetics?
What games in specific?
Main use? Considering if you do plan to edit, what software would you use?

Budget - around 900GBP for the PC and around 200GBP for monitor and keyboard/mouse

Aesthetics - Not really too bothered about aesthetics just as long as it looks nice and tidy

What games in specific - Probably GTA, Skyrim, H1Z1, CSGO and SWTOR at 1st

Main use? Considering if you do plan to edit, what software would you use - I would use it mostly for gaming but if i was to edit i would probably use Sony Vegas or Adobe Premier Pro as I've used both of them previously!

If I was interested in streaming/recording would I have to invest a little bit more as well?

Ryzen 5 should be available April 11th. Should offer similar performance to i5s in gaming, but better elsewhere for similar price.
