1k-2k pounds build

11 minutes ago, Dreaper said:

My friend is upgrading his current pc and doing his first custom pc. He wants to spend around 1-2 thousand pounds (would prefer middle ground). No need for keyboard or anything like that but he does need a 144hz monitor. He will not be streaming at all. Theme he wants black and white.

This doesn't leave much space for the 144 Hz monitor, so you could consider going down to a 1080. But in all seriousness, you should wait unless August to past just in case there is a new Nvidia card.

If you want to save 100 pounds and if your friend isn't into overclocking then you can consider B360 and 8700.

So here is what I put together with the budget. Also did multiple case cooling solutions, two maximum air flows, and two for most efficient quiet operations. Both of these are in controlled and uncontrolled variants.

 

Also did a second build centered around the 1080P monitor as opposed to the 1440P monitor.

 

First your two TV options.
