$1100 gaming pc
« on: January 27, 2019, 09:47:21 AM »
Hello everyone
This is my first time trying to build my own gaming pc and I know close to nothing about parts.
My budget is 1100 dollars for the pc. I want to play in 4K with games like GTA V, PUBG, COD, FIFA 19 etc at high FPS. I usually play 2 hrs a day on the weekdays 5-6 on weekdays and pretty much all day during holidays.
Please help out by replying with a list of all parts needed to build the pc so that I know they are compatible.

Thank you :)

Welcome to the Forum, omartazi!

Your budget is a little tight for a 4K gaming PC. I suggest you follow the $1250 Quiet Gaming PC, and then drop the CPU cooler to save $30 (the cpu comes with a cooler), and also drop the SSD from 1TB to 500GB to save another $75. Finally drop the Gold-rated power supply to the EVGA 550W Bronze-rated power supply. That saves another $20.

Then you'll be close to $1100 with a build capable of playing most games at 4K.

If you went with a 1080 monitor you could get really good performance on max settings.  I don't understand the 4k hype, then again when gaming finally went to 800x600 I was amazed  ;D

Secret has a good point here. You don't need to game at 4K to experience great image quality. The build I suggested, based upon the new RTX 2060 6GB video card, would actually be capable of driving a 1440p monitor at maximum detail, and this might be superior to running a 4K monitor a medium detail. On a 1080p monitor, just about any video card could do that, meaning you could spend far less than $1,100.
