Gaming PC

Hi I'm looking to purchase a gaming PC and I'd like some help please. I'll be using a 1080p 144hz Monitor 24.5in (might upgrade to 1440p in future). I mostly play American/Euro Truck Sim, World of Warcraft, some older stealth games. Also I'll be playing MSF2020 when it releases (Pref to play at mid-high settings if poss). So basically I want something to be able to do all of those with potential for upgrades a few years down the line too. My budget is around £1,100. Thanks.

Hi thanks for doing that build for me but it's a bit too high still really for my budget. What if I wasn't going to upgrade to 1440p and was just going to stay at 1080p in future would that drop it down a bit? Also I'm using double monitors too (forgot to mention that), 2nd monitor being 1080p 60hz. Thanks.

No worries...I prefer to start over budget and then work down than the other way. Try this one, whichw ill still be fine to upgrade for 1440p same as the other spec:

Thanks. I'll be ordering sometime next week, might have a bit tweak here and there too. If I come up with any other build ideas or questions I'll post here. :)

Well, AMD chips don't overclock like Intel chips do...they already come with an automatic overclock which will boost core speeds depending on what it is being used for...manually overclocking an AMD chip can actually lead to worse performance.

The hard drive configuration I don't get...the 256GB drive serves no real purpose in the build as the M2 drive is the one you want your operating system, programs etc on as it's the fastest drive. The 256 is too small for a storage drive
