Hi all,

My sister is looking for a computer system for my nephew so he can play Fortnite online smoothly with max settings. I was thinking of getting it from Alienware or Digital Storm, but I would like to ask the more experience people here first. Thank you and I am much appreciated for any help.

With max settings but at which resolution and refresh rate?
1080p, 2k or 4k?
60hz, 120hz, 144hz, etc?
Do you have a monitor?

The best settings, so guessing 4k right? And is 144hz better than 60hz?

Everything will be brand new, my sister is willing to spend 3k for a computer system if need too just for Fortnite. But if I can do the minimum payment to get Fortnite at max then that will be better too. In a nutshell, I just want my nephew to play Fortnite at the best graphics with the best speed so he has some awesome no lag playthrough.

On a game like Fornite higher refresh rate is better.

Would wait a few weeks and go for something like a R5 5600X or 5700X which will be much better than the intel chips.

Also thr 3080 is out of stock everywhere something like a 5700XT will do fine for literally half the price.

32GB is overkill

Would also like to point out you don't play at max settings because it puts you at a disadvantage.
