Hi everyone,

The last time I built a PC was around 5/6 years ago with the following specs:
Fx6300, R9 280, 8Gb Ram etc etc.

I'm looking to build a new one which will be a huge upgrade but I'm totally out of the loop with current components!

My budget is around £1200ish and the build will be primarily for gaming (no surprise! :)).
Could any of you kind folks propose potential component lists? The Ryzen 5 3600x & Rtx 3060ti looks to be a good combo but again, I don't have a clue!

Thanks in advance! :)
 
Can you manage something like this?

Looks good mate, thanks for that!
Are the m.2 ssd's much faster than the old sata 3 equivalents? They were new when I made my first build & more expensive!
