Hello all and thanks in advance, I received some really useful information when building my pc last year!

In the UK, with a budget around £1000. looking to get the build going in the near future. Its for my mum so mainly documents and excel, photoshop etc. Although when using it I would like to be able to play civ6 and other such titles at a decent rate, in 1080p.

WIFI included in motherboard would be ideal as until I have built the new desk space there will be no wired connection available.

I was thinking something like this: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/DqKZYg

It would be nice to keep it small for her as the desk with be in the kitchen so a tidy non rgb look is key.

Any help and advice especially on availability of motherboards, cooling and case.

Cheers
Lewis

There is no issue whatsoever. This is from manufacturer webpage...

  • Memory
    • Dual Channel DDR4 Memory Technology
    • 4 x DDR4 DIMM Slots
    • 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors support DDR4 non-ECC, un-buffered memory up to 4800+(OC)*
    • 10th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors support DDR4 non-ECC, un-buffered memory up to 4600+(OC)*
    • Supports ECC UDIMM memory modules (operate in non-ECC mode)
    • Max. capacity of system memory: 128GB**
    • Supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) 2.0
    *11th Gen Intel® Core™ (i9/i7/i5) support DDR4 2933 natively; Core™ (i3), Pentium® and Celeron® support DDR4 2666 natively.
    10th Gen Intel® Core™ (i9/i7) support DDR4 2933 natively; Core™ (i5/i3), Pentium® and Celeron® support DDR4 2666 natively.

    **Due to the operating system limitation, the actual memory size may be less than 4GB for the reservation for system usage under Windows® 32-bit OS. For Windows® 64-bit OS with 64-bit CPU, there is no such limitation.
Basically it means that, when you boot up that RAM first time it will run 2933. Once you go into BIOS and enable XMP, it will run at its rated speed of 3600. You can overclock it further manually if you want.

Save a few quid. 3200Mhz RAM gets you the same performance with these Intel 11 gen cpu's.
