Hi guys, my little cousin has been pestering his mum for a gaming pc for his birthday (good lad). Hes currently using an xbox and seems like he wants to take things further, i havent built one in 4 years and so id appreciate some help with the main parts,

Would ideally look to spend about £800 max, but my main question is what would be the best cpu gpu combo, bearing in mind 800 would be the total system price includin case psu etc

If you want to reccomend a whole system build i would also appreciate it

His main games of chpice are warzone fortnight , and hopefully in the future some better games lol

Thabns in advance for your help

Tom

this includes a keyboard, mouse, and speakers but not a monitor or Windows. a 1660 Super is good for 1080p gaming with a 60-120Hz monitor
