Need help with creating an actual build

Shaikoro
 Share

Hey Guys, I've been looking at the other posts, and they all basically list a ballpark idea of what parts they want. I am however fairly clueless when it comes to PC building, and I somehow managed to end up owing a very close friend a computer build (just the build list, not the actual parts). So I am really hoping that maybe some kind knowledgeable soul will be able as well as willing, to help me with a build; based off of budget and needs.

 

1. Budget & Location

1150-1300$ - Denmark/Sweden (So around 7000-8000DKK)

2. Aim

The main aim/use of the computer, would be browsing the web, watching youtube and streaming HBO/Netflix, and gaming. Games would be fortnite/black ops/league, but it would be nice if it were possible to play games like the forest, ARCH as well, preferably in high resolution at a solid FPS.

 

3. Monitors

Only one monitor is required, preferably between 22-27" 

 

4. Peripherals

Mouse and keyboard is needed, but they can be cheaped out on. Windows OS is not needed, and I will try to purchase an activation code online or something (feel free to add an anecdote as to how this is smoothly and securely done)

5. Why are you upgrading?

Friend has a peasant laptop from 2002, there is no fix haha

 

Would appreciate this insanely much! Thanks to anyone that helps!

I don't know about the Monitor, just picked the cheapest high refreshrate mointor.

And get some peripherals of your choosing.

 

You might be able to fit a 2060 in your budget if you want to play cinematic games more often. But a 580 is a solid card for a decent price.

What resolution? For $1300 you can probably do high refresh rate 1440p. Also, what form factor do you want? If you don’t know much about pc sizes (mitx, matx,

atx, eatx) I recommend watching a YouTube video on it (I’d link something but I’m at school and don’t have reception) lastly, do you have a preferred color scheme?

He could get way more than a 580 for a $1100-$1300 budget

You have to be concerned about where he is and shipping companies for him.

Sorry didn’t see the last part of your post. There are some pretty good deals on 1070s and like you said the 2060 would be a great idea for this build. He might want to wait and see if the roumored 1160 would be a little bit cheaper for similar performance

Checking newegg, there's RX 580 8G's for 210-260USD quickly. Checking Jimms.fi, a good site here, RX 580 8G's I could get now, range 299-429€. Prices are crazy here. XE.com says that's 340-490USD

Damn!! I’m pretty sure I saw a zotac 1060 6gb for about $200, not sure how much that is Nordic but it might be a better value since the 580 and 1060 are so similar

Since he said "high res," do you think we should go with 1440?

I don't really know how bad 1080p video looks on a 1440 display.

Doesn’t look too bad, but to get high refreash rate on 1440p he would need more than a 580

Jesus this site is amazing, so many great and helpful replies, almost instantly. I however, did not account for the price differences - So I most likely have wasted some of your time, since the great builds calculated in USD, seem to cost a lot more when purchased here... But I really do appreciate the effort and help!

This looks pretty good actually - Do you think it's good value?

It has 2x RAM, 2x SSD, 2x HDD compared to the other build for roughly 7300DKK/10000SEK which is cool 1400SEK less than the other build. So surprisingly good value from Komplett.

Even the peripherals can be found for a nice price, keyboard for 350DKK and a mouse for 300DKK. So the entire setup for under 8000DKK/11000SEK.

Better components for less, I'd say get it now before the discounts run out on the 19th.

Thanks a lot! Really appreciate it, how did you change it to SEK (Swedish Krona), I only ever get dollars when using PCpartpicker? 

SE.pcpartpicker.com, pcpc provides localized versions in addition of the usd/www.
