Afternoon,

Im wanting to build a pc and wondering if you could help me with some parts
Will be used for gaming such as warzone
using software like adobe after effects, lightroom, photo and video editing etc
my budget is £1000 and im in the uk
 

Eximo

Titan
Ambassador
My suggestion would be to look at the resolution/settings you want to play at and an acceptable frame rate to you. Then try to find a GPU to match. Once that cost is settled, then you can build a rig.

You can build a decent computer for 1K, but GPU prices are insane at the moment.

If your objective is gaming, you need to get a good graphics card.
Unfortunately, such cards are unavailable today, at least at prices less than 2x msrp.

I would suggest you shop first for your graphics card and build around that.
Budget twice your cpu budget for the graphics card. Perhaps more in these times of shortages.
Most any cpu in the $200 range will give you a good gaming experience.

Plan on a ssd for windows. Any kind will do; the benefits of m.2 pcie devices are not great compared to normal 2.5" sata ssd. Perhaps a 1tb ssd.
If you run out of room, it is easy to add storage later.

Buy a nice case that visually appeals to you.
A case will be with you for a long time.
My functional criteria would include:
At least two 120/140mm front intakes that are filtered. Preferably with an easily changed washable filter.
160mm headroom for a good air cooler.
I do not like liquid cooling unless you have a space restricted case or are seeking record overclocks.

Do not skimp on the psu quality. Look for a top quality unit with a 7 or 10 year warranty.
Consider a good psu as a long term investment.
Here is just one chart of psu quality; there are others.
Buy tier1/2, no less than 3.

The wattage you need is mainly determined by the graphics card.
Here is a handy chart:

I have no problem overprovisioning a PSU a bit. Say by 20%.
It will allow for a stronger future graphics card upgrade.
It will run cooler, quieter, and more efficiently in the middle third of it's range.
A PSU will only use the wattage demanded of it, regardless of it's max capability.

Quite plentiful in India as well from the last few builds I have done for people there.
It's bcz of how Indias economy is you'll still find people here having core 2 duo and similar system(infact I have one in a corner) however the modern pc parts market has been growing and parts being out of stock is uncommon but the demands in not like it is in US thus theres no benefit in scalping so most of the high end GPU are at their normal price (unless manufactures/retailers bumped up the price) that being said 16 series card have been hit and the prices have increased.
