Hey guys, my brother wants a new gaming pc and his budget is 1000 euros. I'm using pc specialist, could you guys try to build a pc on the website and place a screenshot of the build here. I have no idea what Im doing so thats why I ask. Thanks! [url]https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/pcs/[/url]
Why not pcpartpicker?
Well, I never built a pc myself before and Pcspecialist has a nice warranty system. But if you guys have better sites for this Id really want to know. Oh and I live in Belgium so a cheap german site or something would be alright too.
I've had a go at making a list from the website, but the selection of parts is terrible. I'd strongly suggest going for one off pcpartpicker as JC2Gamer said. If thats not possible i'll send you a list but don't expect it to be as powerful as one from pcpartpicker.
If you could send me the list, I'll try pcpartspicker but I have no clue what's compatible with what.

What you had listed was an internal soundcard that utilizes a PCI slot. It's not needed as it provides no difference whatsoever.

Thanks guys really helping me out! My brother has a gtx 570 gpu we could use, is that one still good for gaming?
[QUOTE=kirederf7;45441237]Thanks guys really helping me out! My brother has a gtx 570 gpu we could use, is that one still good for gaming?[/QUOTE] It's getting on a bit, but if you don't mind lowering some settings it is still pretty powerful.
