Hi,

After about 5-6 years of trying to convince my dad to buy me a Gaming PC, he has agreed. The budget he has given me on the PC is about £1,000.

I was wondering if you guys know any good RTX systems for around that price. Would you suggest I attempt to build it myself (I have 0 experience doing so by the way) or would you suggest I get it pre-build from like overclockers or pc specialist?

For the monitor I have decided to go for the AOC Gaming C27G2ZU but the only downfall of this monitor is that it has VA panel type rather than IPS and it is 1080p rather than 1440p so if anyone knows any monitors that are good which you think is better than this for around the same price range then let me know guys!

So far in my mind Ive got this PC:
CaseKolink Citadel Gaming Case - Black
Power Supply600W 80Plus Rated PSU
CPUAMD Ryzen 5 5500 Processor with 3.6GHz base clock, 4.2GHz boost

Primary Solid State Drive480GB 2.5" SATA Sold State Drive
Kingston A400 240GB SATA 6Gb/S 2.5" Solid State Hard Drive - (SA400S37/240G)
Storage Hard DriveOptional
GraphicsZotac GeForce RTX 3060Ti Twin Edge OC LHR 8GB GDDR6 PCI-Express Graphics Card
Audio7.1 High Definition Audio
Operating SystemMicrosoft Windows 10 64 Bit

It costs: £1,069.90 (incl. VAT) https://www.overclockers.co.uk/ocuk-gaming-kalis-amd-ryzen-5-5500-geforce-rtx-3060-gaming-pc-fs-1ft-og.html?group=ba468640-d163-58cd-bffa-1bb665e3addb-6292656e3d5f65.39468113

Respectable
Your first decision should probably be self-built or pre-built.

Regarding that pre-built:

Is 480 gb going to be enough storage over the longer term?

No detail shown on that 600 watt power supply, which is usually grounds for being suspicious about it.

Does that website offer any pre-builts in which they name the PSU brand and model?

Does your father or any friends or relatives have any building experience?

They have an option to call a number and tweak the specs so I will probably call them to add 1tb HDD and around 500 GB SSD, SSD for my OS and some games rest in the HDD. I will listen to the guy below you and ask them to switch the PSU too
