So I'm going to build a gaming Pc for University and I honestly have no idea of how to pick out the best parts. My hope is that it will last for about 4 years, maybe with some minor upgrades. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as possible, probably sometime this week
Budget Range: A soft maximum of 1000£ slightly over won't bother me but somewhere around that range
System Usage from Most to Least Important: I'm only looking for gaming performance here, anything else is secondary
Parts Not Required: Mouse and speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: It doesn't really matter as long as they ship to Edinburgh, Scotland and are trustworthy
Country: Great Britain, Scotland, Edinburgh
Parts Preferences: Preferably a 1TB hard drive and a 128 GB SSD. The Graphics card needs to have ports for at least one more screen.
Overclocking: Maybe, not initially but the possibility would be great unless it costs too much too allow for it.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, same as with overclocking
Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080, if you are able to fit in a small secondary monitor for split screen then that would be nice but not necessary Something like a 1280 x 854. The secondary monitor would just be used for internet browsing and watching youtube.
Additional Comments: If possible I would like it to not have too many lights on it since it will be in the same room as where I sleep. It would be nice if it wasn't loud either, some noise is fine, just not too much.
If you don't feel like picking out a keyboard just allow for somewhere around 40-60£ for that in the build and I'll pick one myself.
I know that some of this is a bit specific, I hope it doesn't cause any unnecessary problems
It has room for both overclocking and sli if you wish, I haven't included a monitor as I don't know a whole lot about them and I'd prefer not to recommend something I know nothing about, the build is a little pricey considering that, you could always slightly lower the cost of the case for a little saving or change the power supply a little. Hope this helps anyway.
