Best build for £1000!

Give me the best build you can for £1000. It has to have :
- A sleek case with easy interchangeable fans and good cable management. (Include RGB fans price)
- good GPU to handle 4K gaming.
- A very good cooler.

So, to put that all in perspective go 'overkill', top of the range, for £1000 pounds!

  1. Also, forgot to mention, add any peripherals if you can!
  2. That really isn't enough for a sleek case, RGB, and top of the line, and peripherals all at once.

    With a monitor, keyboard, mouse, headphones, operating system, you are looking at around 750 remaining for a PC. That is enough for a good 1080p system.

    I'll poke around and see what I can come up with, but my definition of sleek may not match yours.
  3. Maybe?

    Motherboard supports RGB and the case comes with two RGB fans. Can always get more. Add a CPU cooler (perhaps even the Thermaltake Riing series of coolers)

    But it is at least capable of contemporary games.

  4. The peripherals and the pc can add up to over 1000. Sorry, I think i worded it badly. So just get a pc that can support 1080p gaming which is £1000 and the peripherals can be £400 max when added up.

    great build but i would recommened waithting a month for ryzen 5 as it may be a better oprtion that is more future proof and even if it is a worse it may drop prices on intels i5 lineup. Also dont spend 100 on a cooler as if your in the 1000 pound price range you will want to make teh switch form a gtx 1060 to a 1070 for that much
  7. I did consider dropping in a GTX1070, but then you really need more into the monitor to make it worthwhile. Though 144hz @ 1080p isn't a bad combination with one.

    The cooler comes with two more matching RGB fans to those in the case. Pretty much the only reason for it, and being able to overclock decently. 4.8Ghz+ is easily in reach.

    Ryzen still has some growing pains. The 6 core 12 threads is possibly a good long term investment. But that single core performance is a little lacking, so if there are a lot of older games in your desired playlist it might be slightly detrimental. Could be great for some of the newer titles though.

    Always trade-offs when you compare the major vendors. Nvidia isn't always the way to go, but right now, they have the high end cards and AMD isn't releasing theirs for a few more weeks, then we'll have to wait on those benches and reviews.

    Dumped the overclocking, for a faster graphics card, and 1440p monitor. Threw in an RGB light strip too. The motherboard, ram, and case also have RGB lighting.

    Fancy case.

    Almost deserves some sort of white CPU cooler to get away from the blandness of the intel cooler. Perhaps the Cryorig C7 : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/Lbhj4D/cryorig-cpu-cooler-c7

    Also, have to get a white GPU: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/fPFXsY/asus-geforce-gtx-1070-8gb-dual-video-card-dual-gtx1070-o8g
  10. @logainofhades, wow! That build is super rgb! I dont think it would hurt to get a cooler would it?
  11. Also, @logainofhades' build, when checking the compatibility notes, this comes up:
    The motherboard M.2 slot #0 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6Gb/s port is disabled. Will this need overlooking or will it be fine?
  12. You can add a cooler if you want. Don't worry about that message. Often populating an M.2 slot disables a sata slot. Your motherboard manual will explain which one. There is no overclocking, in that build, unless you decide to overclock your graphics card.
  13. What about the monitor connecting cables? Should i buy separate or will they come with the monitor?
  14. VX24AH Box Contains

    Asus Monitor
    Power Cable
    VGA Cable
    HDMI Cable
    Audio Cable
    User Documentation

    Actually not sure about the AOC, the LG looks like it doesn't.
  15. Okay. Thanks
  16. With the case and white parts to go with, I want my PC to look like a true beast. Is there any changes to the case and parts to go along to make it look like a beast?
  17. Also a clean look could look cool too
