$1400 Gaming PC

 Share

I am wanting to get a good quality PC that can run games at high FPS and render 1080p videos easily, I've tried to construct my own build, getting some help from people over here in the past, I live in australia so obviously my budget is in AUD, I was originally going for an AMD CPU but I have heard alot of negativity towards AMD so I was thinking of switching the build to an Intel, I would prefer a full modular PSU, a monitor has to be included, that is capable of HDMI input, while it isn't listed on PCPartPicker.com, I have found an Acer H236Hlbid which I would like for $184.00AUD, so which needs to fit in the budget. I am looking to buy the build in exactly 2 weeks from now.

Here is the build I was originally looking at:

I'd suggest planning a bit later. ~2-3 days at most before you buy. Parts and prices can change very frequently.

If you ever need help with a build, read the following before posting: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/3061-build-plan-thread-recommendations-please-read-before-posting/
Also, make sure to quote a post or tag a member when replying or else they won't get a notification that you replied to them.
