Hi All

I am planning to build a PC around AU $1000 with no graphic card as yet

Already own a 1080p monitor, and would add gtx 2070 or 2080 in mid 2019

Please let me know if i have chosen the best possible components within my budget $1000

Your guidance is much appreciated, here is my components list:

  1. Intel - Core i5-8600K 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor - $390
  2. Asus - PRIME Z390-P ATX LGA1151 Motherboard - $230
  3. Corsair - Vengeance LPX 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR4-2400 Memory - $105
  4. Samsung - 960 EVO 500 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive - $145

Is a Ryzen APU something you would consider? By the time you get a GPU later on there should be new Ryzen chips too, and the integrated GPU is good enough for some basic gaming.

Thanks, I will be going for intel i5 8th gen this time. Do you think i can fit all of this in a mid tower case? I really love the case you suggested but was worried if GTX 2070 will have enough space for it in the future when i upgrade?

That's fair. And yes, a mid tower case would fit all your components too, just be aware that the one I selected is an mATX mid tower and not an ATX one.

Thanks mate for the guidance! I have gone ahead with NZXT H500i for this build

The Supernova NEX is a medicore PSU. Poor choice nowadays. Get a G3.

Windows 10 full version is NOT 45$. Get a legal key. This goes against this site’s rules

Maybe OP is buying it from someone? That's what a new, unopened, Windows retail disk goes for around me in the local classifieds.

Just saw your comment bud I just ordered the PSU, is it really that bad?

The G1 isn’t terrible like an EVGA B3 or Corsair VS, but it’s not great. Sub par build quality and medicore performance. Can’t comment on its protections because I don’t know from the top of my head.

If you already ordered, I’d recommend cancelling the order and getting either an EVGA G2, G3, Corsair TXM, RMx, RMx 2018, Bitfenix Formula Gold or Whisper M.

Or even eVGA 220-G2-0750-XR 750W G2 80+ Gold Full Modular Power Supply

They are both same price so wondering if i should go for 750w instesd of 650 w on corsair

It's far from being a bad unit, but it's certainly not the in it's class (80+ Gold, full modular)

Go for dual 8 GB memory. With that CPU something about 3000hz should be perfect.

Sure i may plan to upgrade to 16 gb later on. I have just updated to 3000hz, here os the one am ordering now
