Hi Everyone, Im from Australia and am looking to buy or build a PC for my birthday in July. I want to be able to run Fortnite, Discord and Spotify all at once and get good frames, I would also like a 144hZ monitor. Im really confused about PC build so need everyone available to help. I dont want to spend more than $1500 or less AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS on the whole PC and monitor. Please help, I want to be able to game with good FPS and no frame drops like I get on my laptop. Thank you so much!

Wow the prices are horrible in Australia. 81 dollars for a 256GB NVMe. :(

I would change so much stuff in that build but I just saw that most of the parts are not even available and the stuff that cost like 100 bux in Canada like the Crucial P1 NVMe at 100 bux is 170 dollars in Australia.

Would you know any cheaper builds, i was really looking for Intel CPU, probably an I5, and an NVIDIA GeForce GPU? Any Ideas?

This is such a bad time to build a PC. A Ryzen system is more value but I can't find half the parts I want for you. It's like everything is out of stock or double the price. It's crazy. let me take a look and come back to you with something.

thankyou so much, I have the money ready I really just need to be able to get this build by August. It just needs to run games well like Fortnite at 120+ FPS. not using it to stream or edit or anything just for gaming and schoolwork. But thankyou and get back to me when you know!

If you need this build by August I would recommend you try and build it as close as August as you can. The prices will change and stocks might be back to ok. Doing it right now isn't necessary :)

Thankyou so much man, How well would this run fortnite on higher range settings?

well if you want to buy it a real quick on july (im 17 on june btw lol), that build suits good for you, well a less price than what i5 9400F with a little different performance in game, but still worth it, also it use GTX 1650 Super, yeah its a Geforce card so it is a good deal for the price. But im pretty shocked with the price actually, i live in Indonesia and if i sum that up it would cost me a total USD 800 (with current currency value). still if you would go for that on july than thats your bang for the buck. Unless you want to wait on august, then yeah it'll be lower :D
