I mean, it's a gaming rig. It'll do just fine but for 1.6K though. Holy damn. I mean, I know you're paying for the service but that's a bit much imo. Honestly, I think if you looked more towards a Ryzen prebuilt, then you could even squeeze a 1080 in there for the same price.

I7 or AMD? That's the question

If you are going for prebuilt I'd advise NZXT's BLD program, pretty good.

Ironside is good too.

You are looking at paying slightly more sometimes cause of building and what not.

I'd also message 13 on here cause he is the master at finding deals and all that.

£1600 is easily £400 too much for that system. It's also ridiculously overkill and wasted money if you're playing on a 1080p 60Hz monitor. So, if you want help on finding appropriate components for your budget, we need to know what monitor(s) you'll be using, and what exactly the system will be used for.

Could you link me monitors I should use with it? As I was looking to buy 2 new ones.

I'm looking to use the PC for premiere pro, after effects use. Want to be able to play any game on medium-high fps on high settings. Just want it to last too. Any suggestions would be great as looking to buy soon.

Depends on the budget. Also, what games will you be playing?

Any preference, like ultrawide or high refresh rate/resolution?

Honestly just COD, GTA5 (lots of mods) , Planet Coaster and Fortnite. Maybe some others like Outlast 2.

I didn't want to spend too much on monitors really but let me know which ones you have in mind, assume both can be hooked up to PC for dual support and use one for Xbox one too
