Building €1,000 Gaming Desktop

Approximate Purchase Date: December.

Budget Range: €1,000 is the maximum I'd spend.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the internet.

Parts Not Required: Mouse.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Honestly, I live in Ireland and I do not know any websites which sell parts here. No preference.

Country: Ireland

Parts Preferences: No preferance, just hope for a good gaming desktop.

Overclocking: Maybe.

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe.

Monitor Resolution: I need to buy a monitor too.

Additional Comments: For my graphics card, I would prefer a Nvidia / Radeon one. And as you can probably tell, this is the first desktop I'll be attempting to build, so I need all the advice I can get.

  1. It will not let me edit the post, don't know why, but I did find an Irish website for parts.

    http://www.thedigistore.ie/

    If you know of any others, let me know. :)
  2. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html?ie=UTF8&nodeId=200395880 <----- Delivery Rates - Republic of Ireland

    This comes out to roughly € 1000. You can cut the price down by going with the gtx 560 ti which I linked at the bottom of this post.
