Looking for advice for my new pc build (PCPP link)


Sep 10, 2017
Im new to pc gaming and im looking for a descent system to play on, i think the most demanding game i'm going to play would be GTA V.
I prefer to play my games on High/Ultra settings, even with mods installed

I would love to hear some feedback on this build, and ideas to maybe upgrade/downgrade

I've tried to come up with my own build:

CPU: .................Intel - Core i5-7500 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor

Agree with this, an i5 just doesn't look like a good buy with only 4 cores. We already know that the next generation of i3's will be 4 core and i5's becoming 6 core.
