Hey guys, I'm looking to get back into the PC gaming scene after more than a few years away. As the title states, I'm looking for a build that will do high / ultra settings @ 1080p/60fps on all current and upcoming games. I am on a budget though and would like to keep it below $1,000. Around $800 would be preferable. As of right now, I don't need a HDD, KB or M, or a monitor. Any and all thanks will be greatly appreciated. Also, I'm not interested in ATI / AMD. So please take that into consideration. Oh and I want the PC to last and be upgradeable so no cheap parts please.

To meet everything you're asking for you're looking at around $900. That is, high/ultra at 1080p, parts from reputable manufacturers, etc.

The most important bits to deliver your performance goals are the i7, and the 1060.

All I've not included in the link is a case, or an SSD. Case is very much an aesthetic/personal preference thing, whilst it wasn't clear from your post whether you need an SSD or a copy of Windows.

I'd like to interject on the above post and claim that a i5 or even a AMD equivalent is more than acceptable for 1920, 1080 gaming.

After doing some research, I came up with the following build; https://pcpartpicker.com/list/w4LzJV. It's running me a bit more than what I was originally looking at, ~$200 more than I wanted to spend, but it looks like it's going to have me set for a while and I'll have some flexibility when it comes to overclocking. If I did decide to upgrade my display, I'd probably only need to get a new video card and I think the parts that I chose are of fairly high quality. Lmk what you guys think.

No no, 8600k is here with z370 mobos. Ditch that expensive case and the win 10 license.

I'll look into that, but the case I've already decided on and the win 10 license I need because it's a new build.

You can get cheap win 10 codes elsewhere for 10-20 dollars. Get coffee lake processor(solid but not too expensive is the i5 8400)/good z370 mobo+atleast 2666-3000mhz memory to go with it.

Unless you're buying an unlocked 'K' processor and plan on overclocking, I'd hold off on Coffee Lake until the cheaper h370 and h310 chipsets come out. Until then Ryzen is still the budget king.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yLPFRG Here's a good place to start. With your budget you can easily upgrade the GPU, RAM, and add an SSD.
