help building a budget gaming pc which would be able to run all games 1920 by 1080p ultra @ 60fps

Just a quick question Im looking to build a second gaming pc for my brother. he mainly plays minecraft heavily modded and would play GTA V and assassins creed unity. the only requirement is that the PC should be like a steam box and the GPU should be Nvidia.

pls help me choose components for the PC.

The budget is £400-£500.
Thanks Guys

  1. Your requirements are not possible with that budget. 1080p @60fps at ultra settings on all games will need more than £500.
  2. Best answer
    firstly, you need at least 800 pounds to even hit ultra, and by choosing a nvidia gpu, you are not making it better, especially for your budget
  3. so what about high settings?

    nope, maybe medium on 50-60fps and on some cpu intensive games, maybe even low, depends on how your build goes

    np, I'd avise you to save up to 650-750 range, then go amd cpu and gpu, that way, you'll be able to hit ultra I'd say on a 1080p monitor

    http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/ZdvzhM Nicked this off another thread , it's really cheap but should run games on 1080p medium
