best build for 1000 pound

#1Dying_PheonixPosted 6/28/2014 8:17:01 AM
Hey everyone

I have been tasked to build my girlfriends brother a decent PC for 1000-1500 ish I really want to make a good impression

Can anyone help me out and pick me a decent i7 build for that price?


I'm sure he would be willing to go slightly over the cost is he gets decent returns

It will.be used mostly for gaming and needs to.be as future proof as possible.

I also need a decent monitor for 200-500 so suggestions would be great.

Hot damn that's a high budget. 1440p, I presume?

EDIT: okay the exchange rate is a lot lower than I thought it was

EDIT2: You know what just completely disregard this post, total failure on my part, thought 1000 pounds was $3600

Unfortunately not. I believe it's more like $1700

But like I said he may be able to increase slightly but we will start with the 1000 PC and 300-500 monitor to start

1500 pounds is about $2500.

500 pounds is about $850.


That is MASSIVE overkill. Unless prices for parts are way higher than the states you're going to have one hell of a build on that budget.

OK cool.

So I want something that looks impreasive .

Maybe a nice mechanical keyboard and decent gaming mouse to go with it?

A nice flashy case.
