The title explains everything.So can you pull it off?(including a monitor but without mouse and keyboard)If not can you build me a pc that is under £1000 and includes a powerful gpu and a decent Cpu .

If you space your budget like this, the other components will have to be very poor quality/from the absolute low end. Those kinds of components shouldn't be trusted and might fail quicly without warning.

This is the recommended build.

The 780 ti is far too expensive and at present both GPUs run all games maxed out 60fps stable.
I chose a hybrid hdd to get both the speed of an ssd and the capacity of an hdd.
Also I put windows 8 and not 8.1 because the upgrade to 8.1 is free.

A local retailer sold the 8.1 version actually cheaper...

This is more the level you should be expecting for £1000

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£173.82 @ Aria PC)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler (£23.90 @ Ebuyer)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard (£100.64 @ Scan.co.uk)
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory (£59.95 @ Amazon UK)

Total: £1029.93
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)


It may be well below an i7-4770K + 780ti but still a very powerful build.
But just in case... I included an 850W PSU alongside a SLI compatible motherboard. This means you can add a 2nd GTX 770 in the future if you feel it necessary. And of course you can over-clock the CPU for extra power there.

Loads of benchmarks in this article if you want to compare the GTX 770 to others.

Keep in mind that the programs that will open with the speed of an ssd in the hybrid hdd are the ones you open all the time.Windows,steam and anything else you use every day.
