Sup lad's. Decided i'm going to treat myself to a new build. This will be my first build but i've been watching tutorials and all that stuff.

I have a monitor, keyboard and mouse atm so i'm good for that. I also have a 2tb Digital Western internal HDD that i can use.

I'm looking to build a PC that will have no problem running games like:
PUBG (I run at around 20fps atm
GTA V (I run at like 30fps)
COD etc etc
Also looking for an Intel build.

Also wanting to run on decent setting's.

My budget is in and around 1000 euro but i can go over if really needed (Shipping to Ireland also).

Heading to work soon and get a break in a couple of hours so I can reply to any questions asked then!

Help on this would be great and much appreciated!

What monitor do you have?

Can you source an OS or would you like me to put one in for you?

You can look at my build if you want an idea of what to build

(Under $1000)
Hard Drive: 1TB
Graphics Card: Zotac GTX 1060 6GB
Processor: Intel Core i5-6600K
Ram: 16 GB Ram
Power Supply: Corsair CX550M Power Supply
Fans: LED Fan(Forgot the speed)
Motherboard: ASRock Z170-Pro4
Network: ASUS Wi-Fi PCI Express Adapter (PCE-AC56)

Try basing your build off of this one as you will get 100+ FPS on most current games

Call of Duty(Except IW and MWR): 100+ Fps
GTA V(Haven't tested): Should get atleast 60
CS:GO: 100+
Minecraft: 400+ (I've gone to 1000 FPS before)

I know you said you wanted intel but consider this ryzen build, if you overclock you'll need to use a different cooler other then the one provided by amd, but just take a look and consider this

Overclocking is out of my comfort zone as I literally know nothing about it besides you run parts faster than theyre built to the i think. Been an Intel guy since I got my first PC cant see myself changing +Rep for the build also!

Here's an intel based build, you can do a few things with this, either take the extra money in your budget and put it to a higher refresh rate panel or switch the 250GB EVO SSD to a 500GB model and upgrade from the stock fans, i reccommend nzxt, be quiet or noctua fans if you go that route, cheers dude & lemme know what you end up going with.

@Z06 - Both of your suggestions are over budget. Euro /= GBP. Also, OP already has an HDD and that RX 580 is not in stock.


OP - This should be right around 1000e;

The RX 580 is a placeholder. RX 480/580s and GTX 1060's are still ridiculously hard to find at reasonable prices. I'd suggest spending around the £250 range for a GPU, but you'll either want to wait a little bit until 580s and 1060s are back in stock at somewhat reasonable pricing, or buy a used GPU. If you buy used, get at least a GTX 970/R9 390. You might be able to find a GTX 980, R9 390x, or even if you're lucky, an R9 Fury for around £250. Any of which would be a solid option.

Alternative RAM choice;

and alternative motherboard;

As for whether or not you're an "Intel guy", is pretty irrelevant. R5 is just better than i5. Especially when you're considering R5 1600 vs a locked i5. At a push, if you;re overclocking, an unlocked i5 COULD make sense. However, you specifically stated you have no desire to overclock. In which case, R5 1600 will perform almost exactly on par with a locked i5, but has 3 times as many threads.

If you must go Intel, just get this instead;

Was starting to think nobody was going to give me a hand hahaha, Major respect to you 13!. I think i'm going to go with he first AMD build you kind of turned me. And then upgrade to a better GPU in a month or 2 after I build if i can find a decent second hand one or if they come on sale somewhere that ships to me!

Can you have a estimate of what frames i'll be running with the AMD build and the stand-in GPU ?

Thanks a million!
