Hi Guys,

Looking to push the button on my first PC build and moving from console gaming to PC. The main driver at the minute is Escape from Tarkov but will use the PC for other games, work emails, internet browsing and likely photo/video editing in the near future.

Budget is max £1,000 not including monitor and peripherals. Not bothered about aesthetics but want high FPS and good quality gaming experience with ability to upgrade in future but to be good for a couple of years.

I have had this PC build recommended and looking for other opinions. I can wait a week or so to order parts if there will be significant savings. All help appreciated.

Looks fine.

One thing I'd suggest (since the 3060Ti is a 200W TDP part), is to go for a 650W PSU. CPUs routinely exceed their published TDPs. Reason being, your next upgrade(s) will likely be a higher performance tier (people rarely go down the performance stack with upgrades) so they'd likely require more power as well.

I have a 550W PSU from 4-5 years ago, and now that I'm in the upgrade timeframe with my existing system, I wish I'd gone 650W.

Thank you, much appreciated.

This is my first PC build, is there anything else I need to purchase to be able to plug in and play aside from Monitor and Peripheral?

Thanks
