Hi, so my this would be my first pc build and I have a budget of around $2500 but can go to $3000 (but would prefer the lower end). Use is mainly for playing mainstream multiplayer games like overwatch, battlefield etc. and occasionally some other ones, would like to get into VR eventually so would be good to have a PC that can handle that. I would also like to stream my gameplay without affecting my frames in-game. Not 100% sure on anything but thinking I should get one of the new gen cards like a 2070 just to future proof? But would like advice on it. If you could provide a parts quote and also a pre-built quote that would be great. Do not need any peripherals and would prefer Intel/Nvidia. Thanks in advance :).

Afternoon AceInnate,

For the use you are planning with your system an AMD CPU would be the best way to achieve this under the $3000 mark without cutting down elsewhere in your system.

Relative performance while streaming from Intel you would be looking at an additional $400.

Please have a look over the below quote and let me know your thoughts.

2700x@ 4.2Ghz
16GB AorusRGB@ 3200Mhz
860 Evo 500GB, 4TB HHD & 6TB HDD
GTX 1080ti Strix
S340 Elite Hyperbeast
