Hi, my pc isnt keeping up with what i want it to, so im looking into getting a new rig (seeing as if i change my graphics card ill have to change motherboard, power supply, etc.) aswell as a 1440p monitor to go with it (preferably 144Hz with gsync, bigger than 24 inch). Its extremely daunting to me, and even with around 3 days of researching i cant seem to find anything suitable. Budget around 1000£ for the PC and 500£ for the monitor.

Any recommendations would help a lot, thanks in advance

Not enough money?

For high FPS, I would say you want to stick with Intel, but that is quite expensive to fit in with a QHD G-sync monitor and GPU to pair with it. Not exactly top choices here, but it would work.

What do you think my "requirements" would need, money wise?

Swapping out for Intel is going to be around another 300 (increased CPU, Motherboard, and CPU cooler cost), and ideally there would be an NVMe drive and an additional standard hard drive in there. Might also go for a slightly larger power supply to accommodate overclocking. And I picked a relatively inexpensive case, there are certainly better ones that include more features.

No peripherals either, so if you are wanting a fancy keyboard, mouse, or headphones/speakers then that still remains to be paid for.
