Hi, 

New user planning first PC build. I've been a Mac user for the last 8 years, currently using a rMBP 13" that I've owned since 2014. 

 

Requirements for this build;

£1000 max including Windows key

1440p60 locked (I only have a 1080p panel just now so 1440p will be in the future)

Useable for at least 5 years with minimal upgrades (I know its hard to predict what will come out that will effect performance)

As best bang for buck

Not bothered about RGB stuff but I guess its nice. 

 

Take a look at my parts list and let me know what you would change

1. There are 2 motherboards in your list

2. I would not opt for a mini version of a 2070

3. I don’t see a PSU here?

 

Does it have to micro atx or can it also be atx?

 

here a build I put together for you just to compare. Windows 10 key can be bought for £10-15 online

 

motherboard has integrated wifi, good quality PSU and the GPU is good here (could opt for a different model)

 

let me know what you think  😃

Good spot, I thought I had deleted the ASRock board. No, doesn't necessarily have to be mATX. I knew inevitably I would forget something, but a PSU... Noob mistake. 

 

Part list you have put looks better than mine. What do you think to the changes I made to it?
