PC build 900euros/1,200$/750pounds - help needed - beginner

  Robotmutt 21:51 24 Mar 2014


I have been playing games a lot recently and was looking to invest my money in a good/worth the price custom built pc as it seems to be better doing and funner. Also this means the possibility of customization and removal of certain parts in the future. I am not very experienced in this sector and require assistance and suggestions. I have about 900euro/ $1,200/750pounds to spend. I do not mind whether it slightly exceeds my money limit, I am looking for the best build I can get with that money NOT including any monitors/peripherals .etc. I have looked at PCPartPicker and do not have much of a clue where to start, I've looked at videos and have the general idea of what I need - I would prefer Nvidia over ASD. Whatever suggestions and must haves will be a great help! I am not sure what the average price for each component should be and how to balance everything out. Not to forget, I do little work, only microsoft word .etc. I will also be watching bluray films, at the moment I have a DVD drive to use and plan to buy a bluray drive in the future, I don't mind whether it is included in the overall build for the moment. At the moment I play Rust, DayZ, Metro, Bioshock, Borderlands, Skyrim and a whole list of similar games quite similar. I will also be looking to keeping this for 2 years or more and be playing games such Titanfall and possibly other mainstream games.

This is a question that is constantly repeated on this forum, and perhaps checking the forum archives might produce some of the results you are seeking?.

There are many manufacturer's out there, who would have or could build the type of computer that you seek. But looking at your reference to various currencies, its a bit challenging to where your exact location is for a reference point to a possible sale or suggestion, even though you have mentioned PCPartPicker, which if I understand correct does have locations in at least 8/9 other countries around the globe.
