So my budget was around 800-1.5k and I play games such as GTA 5 (lots of mods) outlast and COD. My cousin also sometimes uses my PC to play Planet Coaster. Want to play all these games on high settings and high FPS, this is the same really across all games although I'm not a big PC gamer, would just be nice to play all games on decent settings

I'm a YouTuber so i need my pc for video editing on premiere pro and using photoshop too.

Was recommended this build, would you say this is powerful enough and worth the price?

It's not actually significantly over-priced. If it also had a decent 250GB SDD, it would actually be worth around £1100 probably. That said, it's garbage. 7800x makes absolutely no sense. It's basically an 8700k with slower performance per core, and a lower clock speed, and requires a more expensive motherboard to do so. X299 doesn't even make sense as an upgrade route either IMO, because you'd be better just going Threadripper at that point, for the most part. Case is super old and basic. It's fine, but not really what I'd expect in a £1k+ system. CPU cooler is sub par compared to cheaper air coolers, but it's fine. No SSD is pitiful, and the PSU is absolute trash. In fact, I'd be very scared pairing an HEDT CPU with one of the lowest quality PSUs money can buy(excluding off-brand products, although there are likely plenty off-brand PSUs that are better than the MasterWatt Lite 400W included in this pre-built system).

Could you be so kind and possibly make a build on cyber ware? Would appreciate it a lot
