I’m looking to build a pc that can run games like fortnite and other shooter games at 120 fps or close to that. My budget is £1000 and I need someone to give me pretty good specs including case etc.

Hey there,

What type of monitor will you be using. Hitting 120fps is easy at 720p or so, more demanding hardware for 1080p. Also what graphical level are you looking for. High/ultra settings with lower FPS (all eye candy) or low to medium with high FPS?

Where do you buy from in the UK, or what stores would you use.

Also, right now with supply chain issues and high prices it's not a great time for getting a PC. Whilst there's lots of choice, getting hold of the parts is sometimes an issue.

I’m looking to use a 1080p monitor, in the uk we have stores like curry’s pc world etc but I’m maybe looking to buy on Amazon or on other online websites but just want to at least get the specs best for suitable. Looking for low to medium with high fps. Please let me know if you can help and drop me some specs with case and all components. Thanks

The other posters, have given some good examples of what's available. Though designed around building it yourself. Is that something you want to try? It's a good way to go and keep costs down.

Here's a Ryzen build, instead of Intel based. Very strong for all games at 1080p high settings, and solid enough at 1440p.

I'm not sure I'd go for that case as it appears to have poor air flow. Keeping a steady supply of cool air will be especially important if you're using the (barely adequate) Wraith cooler that comes stock with a 5600X. In gaming action it just ends up recirculating the hot GPU exhaust...and it's own hot air...which will severely limit CPU boosting.

Thank you, could you maybe refer me a better case please.

The only RX 6600 XT available is on Amazon UK for over 1000 quid. I'm guessing your budget has changed since your previous thread two days ago.

That’s great but you could maybe find a case in under £100 that’s good, even if you know it’s in the us because I could get it in the uk or find an alternative very similar to it, please and thanks
