I'm gonna go ahead and recommended you build a PC versus buying a prebuilt because you're gonna get a lot of people telling you that lol. It's a pretty solid build but it also depends on what you're doing with it.

Ye that system will run any game you throw at it at max settings, The GTX 1070 is an absolute beast for the price.

Im not to sure what ill be doing yet but i could see this doing the job ill most likely stick to games such as : PUGB, CS:GO, Fortnite, GTA V and maybe the odd campaign game.

I like how you completely ignored your last topic lmfao. Go with what was recommended and make your mind up; on a set budget, not hopping around 1000-1500 is a pretty big leap. You could get a better performing machine for less if you really work around with the budget.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel - Core i7-8700K 3.7GHz 6-Core Processor (£398.99 @ Amazon UK)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! - Dark Rock Advanced C1 50.5 CFM Fluid Dynamic Bearing CPU Cooler (£48.99 @ Aria PC)
Motherboard: MSI - Z370-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£92.99 @ Ebuyer)
Memory: G.Skill - Flare X 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£128.75 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£125.94 @ Aria PC)
Storage: Hitachi - Ultrastar 7K3000 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£53.99 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: PNY - GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Video Card (£426.33 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Fractal Design - Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case (£79.98 @ Amazon UK)
Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 (EU) 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply (£79.99 @ Novatech)
Total: £1435.95


Still coming in under that prebuilt, and would easily stomp it.

Terrible choice in monitor, curved 1080p is just a no from me. The keyboard is iffy, you're literally paying for the name in both of them; I've used cheap products, from Redragon, and Logitech; both a better feel than anything razer I've had.

ill repeat myself for the third time you little freak this is my first computer so stop critisizing it and I'm happy with that build as I'm trying to get it as soon as possible as I don't know much about building the pc myself. Now stop commenting on my posts unless you're gonna be helpful instead of being a straight up ****. Plus that's only a 1.2k pc prebuilt but upgraded

If you could process anything me or 13 have said in any of your posts you would understand we have done nothing but help. Quit being ignorant and take some time to read. We have explained a little on both of our parts as to how it is listed out.

>if my last post wasn't helpful quit making new topics about the same thing each and every time. Enough said.
