  1. Soo I'm pretty nooby when it comes to all the fancy specs required in a PC .
    When I say pretty I mean very.

    I don't want to break the bank so I ask a few questions of you today!

    AMD or Intel
    Good budget graphics card
    What mouse and keyboard should I buy
    And any other fancy stuff that helps me get higher fps!

    Thank you :p

  2. Suppose it depends on how much you want to spend. You get what you pay for when it comes to PCs.

  3. Indeed, generally (one of) the first questions to ask yourself when doing something like this, is, what is the budget? :)
  4. How much money do you have to spend?
  5. A good powerful graphics card is the gtx 1060 it is relatively cheap for the performance it costs around £275 or $359 USD, i would recommend it.
  6. And that definitely depends on what type of gaming you do. Minecraft takes very little but some other games take a lot. Also, what other non game things do you want to use if for?

  7. Mainly minecraft maybey CSGO and not much more than £500 ,£600 at a big stretch
  8. Mostly true, minecraft takes:

    A fair bit from the CPU actually, but most current not too bad CPUs should be enough

    Not too too much from the GPU, but most (or all, dunno) Intel IGPUs are not really powerful enough

    A bit of RAM, but because you should get 8GB as a minimum anyways, it's generally not a problem, but if you want to run 3/4+ minecraft clients at the same time, I advice you to get 16 GBs.

    That ^ is disregarding all other requirements for other games and stuff. :)
  9. I can link you the same bundle that HxCami10, Willies952002, and Saivious help me put together. It was onyl 552$ with shipping but this DOESN'T include monitor/TV. Though I ended up getting a 32inch smart TV as my screen for 280$. I did my purchases on NewEgg if that is fine with you.

  10. I run quite a bit of games, I don't play Minecraft alone, I play GTA V as well for PC. My PC does a good job running GTA V on a 1280 x 720 resolution, fps wise I don't know because I never measured it but it looks pretty smooth to my eyes.

    It handles the firefoor very well when running optifine! :D

    Here's the page to best buy's website for that my PC. Then I'd suggest buying a better graphics card if you still have money left over.
  11. I PM'd you a detailed list and a summary of everything.

    PSU: Corsair HX1200i

    Though, I'm not sure it can run CS:GO. You can try. It only costs about $6000. Might even be cheaper where you live. ;D
  13. Why would you need a 1200w psu for 1 1080 :confused:

  14. To brag?! :D
    No comment on the 10TB hdd?

  15. This includes a monitor, not W10 though. You may be able to save some money going to a 6400, or maybe an i3. (W10 is 100 pounds, not included here)

    A couple changes you could make: Cheaper case/i3 processor/460 instead of 470
  16. Get nvidia not AMD for your GPU
