I don't know much about computers but I would like to start getting into pc gaming. I would like to play games like pubg and the new AAA games. Gaming will be my only real use for the computer

My budget is 1500 usd - budget is for just the pc
I would like to also go the intel route instead of ryzen.


Any help would be greatly appreciated

Aesthetics? (panels, LEDs, color schemes)
Will you overclock?

So just the PC, no peripherals?
What monitor(s) do you have that you'll be using with this system then?

Why?

cuz I'll need it for the heatsink that goes on the CPU and for right now I will use a 1080p tv but I have plans to get a 4K monitor eventually I just want a good system first.

No you won't. CPU coolers come with pre-applied thermal paste or in some cases, include a tube of thermal paste.

Yeah, don't do that. Spending $1500 to play games on a 1080p TV is a huge waste of money.

CPU: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] ($196.74 @ OutletPC)
Motherboard: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] ($119.49 @ SuperBiiz)

Monitor: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] ($219.00 @ Newegg Marketplace)
Total: $1370.85

You can easily get a nice 1440p monitor and a GPU capable of running it within your budget. This monitor should easily OC to 96-120Hz. You can use the remaining $150 or so to either bump the GTX 1070 up to a GTX 1080 and get a bigger/better SSD, or get this monitor instead of the QX2710;

If you're determined to go Intel, wait another 2 weeks or so for Coffee Lake and grab an i5(probably an i5-8500 and a B360/H370 motherboard).
