So I would like to get a build that would allow me to run every game in 1080p and 60fps because obviously that's the best way to play but look

it's over a thousand quid! and I only want to spend a thousand, I can't find a way to cheapen this build. Any advice?

I'm guessing you guys are either super rich or money pushing genies

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

but it won't be future proof then?
I doubt it would even be able to run every game at a butter smooth 60fps now.

1. Change your CPU to an i5. It's all you need for gaming.
2. Change your RAM to 8gb.
3. Get a 550 or 650 watt PSU.

Make those 3 changes, and your build should be down to about 1000.

*shrug* I don't know what you are expecting, magic? You need to give up somewhere. The PSU and memory were the best places to save money. CPU could save money as well. Up to you.

Yeah, I guess you're right.
Hopefully it'll still run most new games and I guess I'll just have to improve it later on.
Thanks

If you want it to be future proof it may be a good idea to go for an i5 and get higher vram on the video card battlefield 3 is already asking for 3gbs.

Also you could probably get a newer version of the Intel processor is. Ivy bridge or haswell
