BLACK FRIDAY GAMING PC BUILD

GibsonBanjos

15 months ago

I've been looking to build a solid gaming PC for the longest time, without paying full price. My budget is around $1,000, although I could go a little over. I figured that Black Friday and Cyber Monday would have pretty good deals. The only problem I have is that I have no clue which parts to add, and the best parts for my buck. My goal is to have a PC that I can run the newest games at, on high or max settings, while trying to not dip under 60 fps (I guess that is a good goal for fps), and I would love to be able to game in 4K. Performance is my main concern, although I wouldn't mind some fancy and clean looks here and there, as long as it isn't too much more. For the case, I wouldn't mind spending a little extra on an asthetically good looking case, that also has a few extra features, without paying a ridiculous amount than what I have to. I just want to make sure I have high quality, and buy parts from well known companies. Since this will be a complete build, I also need a monitor, but I have no clue about gaming monitors and which brands are superior to others. I will not be including a mouse and keyboard into my budget. Any PCPartPicker list or any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated by me. Links to any products would also be so much help! Thanks to anyone who can help!

With black friday/and cyber monday, you can get gr8 deals.

So I recommend putting the $1k into the PC, and then filling up the gaps with monitors and accessories when the price drops.

So here's something like a $1.3k setup.

Thank you so much. I just got off of work and I am about to start ordering my parts. Are these parts about the best that money can buy for the budget? I’m sure they’ll easily be able to handle anything I need. Thanks so much!

I think so. It's a very good parts list for that amount of money

Definitely, but look out for some deals on the 1070 Ti. If you can get it for 350 it's a steal.

Also, good luck with your build!
