Need help for for a build

Hello guys !

I want to buy a PC but I do not have any knowledge about hardware so I really need to be guided here. I'm looking for either a custom pc or pre-build I don't mind.

What I want to do with it is play some League of Legends, CS:GO and some AAA games too like RDR2, Assassin's Creed etc.. in high/ultra 1080p if possible and I'll probably buy a 144hz monitor too. So there it is.

My budget would be between 1k and 1k5 euros. If this not enough for what I want, then I will lower my expectations.

Thank you in advance guys ( sorry if the typo mistakes, not my native language ) !

For your needs this is what you should be looking for, the most important aspect of this build is it's potential for longevity. This will last years with a couple of GPU upgrades and have enough power to support the improvements. It's a little over budget though

Thank you so much, look really good ! Another question, in your opinion, would it be better to wait a little longer to have a cheaper price ? Prices have skyrocketted during the past months

Edit : I just noticed that there are only 2 SSD and no HDD, I've always notices that people tend to buy 1 SSD and 1 HDD ? Could you explain please ?

It's really a job to say to be quite honest, about 3 months ago people were thinking that prices might have been leveling out at least by now, however that doesn't seem to be happening

HDD's are fine for static storage things like photos, videos, etc. Things that gain no performance benefit, I went with two M.2 SSD's because they are the fastest drives available and will help greatly with load times in games.

One for the operating system and few programs (500Gb) and one for everything else (1Tb)

As for the prices, who knows mate they say the chip shortage is to last until the end of 2022 so if anything the prices may get worse. It's really hard to tell at the minute though

Thanks for the answer ! One last question, the delivery was set to UK, and I'm in Dublin, so I changed the option to 2 days delivery to Ireland and price went from 1k6 to 1k3, is that normal ? That's a lot there

Well no I did not change anything but when I tried to proceed it did not work. I do not have the option for 2-3 days delivery to republic of Ireland, I have 3 different " 2 days delivery to republic of Ireland " but only one seems to work somehow
 
Hi there,

I'm looking to buy a gaming pc, mostly to play e-sport title at 1080p but I'd like room to play AAA games from time to time if possible. Is it possible to make a scalable build that can be upgraded when the market will be in a better shape ?

I've done some research and I've not decided if I should go for a 144hz or 240hz monitor (maybe 240hz is overkill, and is probably more demanding hardware-wise), any advice on this would be appreciated :)

Btw I did not try to do a build myself as I strictly don't know anything about hardware... Sorry guys !

Budget would be up to 1500 euros, can add a little more if needed !

Thanks a lot :)

Hi @DedeMolard. I’ve merged this new post with your thread from a few months ago as some of the info on there is salient and relevant to your new message 🙂👍
