Hey Guys,

Looking to build a Pink / White build for a friend of mine, was hoping to get some help on the parts!

We have £1000 to spend on the Build, am looking at getting a Nvidia 3060 Founders Edition, so have £700 roughly to spend on the rest of the build! Anyone who can link me ful lbuilds / parts, i'd really appreciate it!

This PC is going to be purely for gaming, so gaming performance is the only goal!

I'd do this: wait until next month when Intel releases the new Rocket Lake (11th gen. cpu's) so you get native support for 3200MHz RAM, PCIe 4, and improved IPC.

Go with a B560 board in the £110 - £120 range ... I'll use these ones for an example but more of these B560 boards from all board manufactures are showing up on websites every few days...

Do you want Ryzen 5,7,9 or do you want thread ripper

You can't put a TRX4 on that kind of budget. Maybe a 3800X. This is what might be feasible on a £1000 budget. Also, avoid ABS like the plague, those systems are junk compared to what you could get elsewhere, or if you build it yourself.

It's hard to get GPUs right now and I didn't see the 3060 Super, but you can substitute that for the 5600XT.

A better look at that case.

Here's a review of the current Comet Lake i5 10400F (£132 on Scan UK atm). Look for the Rocket Lake version of that chip (i5 11400F) to run circles around it due to native support of 3200Mhz RAM and improved IPC.
