£700 Computer build First build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

 

Another excited December computer building noob begging for help. UK based.

 

I'm looking to build a decent gaming computer to run games at 1080p with the monitor and a wireless network adaptor as the peripherals to include in this price point.

 

Looking to be able to play a wide range of games on this system but the main games are Rocket League and Civ if that helps at all aha

 

Basically upgrading because I've had a laptop for around 7 years now that was not built to last anywhere near the length of time that I've been using it, would like to go back to the tower computer life for the sake of finally getting beyond turn 170 on Civ 6 without my laptop fan heating the room by 5 degrees.

 

Also want to use the computer for basic word processing for Uni but blah blah no more life story.

 

Thanks for any help, I greatly appreciate it and hope to learn from your advice!

prices and availability varies by country, it's never as simple as converting the currency and giving an american list. plus, you completely ignored the monitor request.

I feel like a kid at Christmas this is very nice of you all.

 

Thank you the lists are super helpful. 

 

Just a general question

 

Is there any benefit in waiting to January to see if prices drop or are they unlikely to change on computer parts?

there isn't any sale or release on january IIRC so no point in waiting.

Blind X easily has the best recommendation.  I have no idea why someone would recommend a 200 dollar motherboard for a build at this price point.  That's GPU money.

Why would you recommend a 2700x and a x570 board that have no effect on gaming performance and then skimp down to an RX 580 when a 2600 with a b450m board would open this build up to a 5700 that would make a night and day improvement in game performance?
