Hello.
I want to build a high end gaming PC for 1500$ or less. Anyone can help me?
I need to build the rig from zero, the only things I don't need in the build are an SSD for the OS and an OS.
Any links, tips and other things are appreciated.
Cheers!

If you prioritize performance over the looks then this build will suit you better. Best setup possible around that budget. No compromise build. All high quality components.

What monitor are you going to be using for this build?

If it's 1080P/1440P @144hz+ then you'll want the 9600K/9700K for the higher refresh rate (better performance per core) but for, lets say, 1440P/60hz then the Ryzen 2600/2700 would be fine and would allow for a better GPU.
