So my mate wants to get into PC gaming after getting fed up with console (Understandable XD) so he needs a build sorting. He isn't too familiar with the parts needed so i was wondering if someone could make one for us. He says he's going to main Fortnite - unfortunately - and is wanting to spend around £800 on the PC. If any info is needed feel free to comment as i'll be on pretty much 24/7. Thanks!

Fortnite is an Nvidia optimized title so that's the direction I went with.

If he can afford it, I would suggest adding a 250 or 500GB SSD to this as well, it will go a long way
