Hiyas! I asked for help here yesterday, and I recieved. Though, every single part given to me was US only, and I live in Scandinavia. So please,


Approximate Purchase Date: 2 months. Loads of time.

Budget Range: 1600-1700$ After Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Video games like always, a bit of internet, schoolwork

Are you buying a monitor: Yes. If 120/144hz can get in my budget, quoth the Scorpion, "GET OVER HERE!"

Do you need to buy OS: Yes. Please, please take that into your calculation :) 

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Komplett (only proper PC parts site within a long range)

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU

Overclocking: No. I'm probably going to break stuff.

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, if it's within my budget.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Do you want an SSD drive: Yes, this so much. If something has to be removed, don't remove the SSD.

This is where I got some monitor info from:

And if you can't spend that much buy a monitor with less cost and also drop the ssdmand also if you don't want i7 processor then go for i5 only a little performance will be dropped. Hope I helped.

If you are in Scandinavia then search for these same items in US online shopping stores and you will get them and sometimes cost might increase or decrease.
