I'm looking at building a new PC as my old one is pretty dated now. I'll mostly be using it for gaming. I don't need a new OS or keyboard/mouse etc. For the time being I will just be using my 1080p monitor but will likely upgrade that in the future.

My budget is ~£1000($1300). I plan to use my current PSU which is a Corsair CX750M that I only bought a few months ago and I have a HDD that I will install for additional storage.

This is something I've put together but I'm open to suggestions and interested to know if anyone has any decent alternatives

I'd change the CPU to the 1700 (cheaper and will OC close to 2700) & change the SSD to the Intel 660P 1TB NVMe M.2 as the price is the same but much more storage. Everything else looks good.

Part list that shows my recommended changes.
