Hello!

I'm back (again) looking to build my first PC.
I've roughly €1000 to spend (some wiggle room but I'd like to keep it around the 1k mark, the cheaper the better, unless it just doesn't make sense to not spend the extra €100 or so.

I mainly play Fortnite, COD, Apex. But I also would like the system to manage some other games like Red Dead, Forza, Battlefield. I'm not expecting 4k but above potato would be nice.

I'm planning on going with a 240hz monitor, if that's not possible in the budget than at least 144hz.

I've no preference on manufacturers, cases, it's all possible!

Any suggestions?

If you use a Ryzen 5 or 7, the Wraith Spire is better than a Hyper 212. No need to spend money if you don't have to. Also a 1080TI is mega overkill for Fortnite. And I would hesitate to buy used. Also, those EVGA W power supplies are complete garbage, they are not enough to power your proposed rig.

This is what I would suggest:

the 750w passes white cert without the cert can easily power this rig, using it currently with a system with the exact same specs, we want a 4.1 or 4.0 ghz overclock cant do this with the stock cooler and aftermarket makes things all around better, and can be used for future builds, dont need a 1tb m.2 youll survive with a hardrive and save 50 bucks and double the storage, unless your streaming no need at all for the r7 just overclock the r5, i use the same specs as i have given, it works like a charm and gets me all the frames my heart desires

btw check out the jhonnyguru review its not half bad and with the price reduction a real contender, at the same time id much rather have a 1080ti used even for mining than a new rx 5700, the aibs arent out yet so if you have the time id wait

You can definitely get better PSUs for the budget. And this isn't a mining rig. It's for playing games.

Also, the RX 5700 and 5700 XT are out and Amazon and Newegg had plenty of stock last I checked. The 5700 and 5700XT both provide 2070 performance (and the 2070 provides 1080TI level performance) for less than the 2070 price tag.

idk bout you but for 450-550 a 1080ti is hard to beat, its faster than all three of those cards and some aftermarket models take that to the next level, for the psu if you want a 1080 and some headroom the psu is fine anything above 650 seems to be the sweet spot for me.

Still, buying used CPUs and GPUs is something that is usually not recommended, and it's mainly due to overclocking, since that detracts from the value as it won't perform the same in a new system.

And if you look at the benchmarks, a 1080TI only performs about 10 points above a 2070 Super, which itself performs about 50 points above a 2070. At that point, do you even notice the difference?

Beefy cooler, most are undervolted mining cards, you can ask most sellers if they were undervolted and take your pick, they can be cheaper and the performance gain while minimal is still great to have

Evga's white series are HEC built junk. For high refresh gaming, the improved IPC, of 3rd gen Ryzen, is a good idea.

I missed that monitor was a part of the budget. Not sure 144hz is going to get fully utilized, with this budget, but at least the monitor is freesync.
