Advice on a gaming build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My friend is about to buy a new system but we can't really decide on the parts.

His requirements for the system are as following:
- It will be used for gaming high end games on best settings
- He will be playing on a 1920x1080 144Hz monitor
- He wants to be able to overclock (nothing extreme)


He already has Optical drive, OS, mouse, monitor and keyboard. As far as storage goes, he wants speed, but also enough capacity. He asked for a minimum of 160GB SSD - but will that be possible within his $1.000 - $1.300 range?


Noise and aesthetics do not matter too much. We are from Denmark and will most likely be purchasing it from Denmark/Europe, but feel free to link the parts' names on example pcpartpicker.

To sum up, he wants a fast, future proof system with a medium storage capacity that will be able to play high demanding games.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Here is a crappy build that isn't optomized. I just chose some quality parts and put it on a list. I'll refine it in a little bit.

All that's left to choose is a case and aftermarket CPU cooler.

EDIT: Replaced the PSU.

I was iffy on it. I couldn't remember what the reviews on it were. I think I chose it more for the price than the wattage. I'll be changing it soon.

EDIT: What about the Rosewill Capstone 550W?
