Hey
I'm helping a new friend who hasn't got much knowledge about computers out making a new gaming pc - he just wants it to be the best possible pc and he has a budget of around 1800 £ (including a new screen).
He has OS (Windows 8), Keyboard and mouse.
Everything has to be shipped to Denmark so pretty much only Amazon.
He won't do any photo editing, just gaming (everything from minecraft to crysis 3 at full settings)
Probably gonna overclock it at some point

Any suggestions etc appreciated!
