$1300 Budget Gaming PC Build - help needed

Hi,
I am looking to buy a gaming PC with the budget of $1300. I am not new to PC gaming and how PC's work, I am simply looking to purchase a more powerful machine. I would like it to include a Nvidia graphics card and an Intel processor. I also need a monitor included, but I am willing to spend a small amount of money on it as long as it won't effect my graphics.

Help very much appreciated,

Miles

  1. What else is included in the budget? What games are you wanting to play? What other things will the system be used for? It helps a lot if you include all the information in the *How to Ask for New Build or Upgrade Advice* sticky when asking for build advice.
