>I have a mouse and I’m getting a case for my birthday from my uncle, we’re going to pick it out so size isn’t a problem right now. I don’t have a monitor but I’m going for 144hz atleast but not too expensive. I’m going to be using the pc for lots of gaming and some general stuff like homework. So mostly just for gaming

Here ya go…

I recommend going with a dirt cheap keyboard such as the one I have showing so you can put more budget into the GPU. Over time, you can just save up for a better one.

The case I have showing is the case you can hopefully get for your birthday, it’s literally one of the best on the market.

Here is a nice keyboard to save up for. I recommend the Gateron Red switches.

Here is a 2TB 7200 RPM HDD to save up for when you need more storage space.

Here is a cheap yet effective cooler to save up for in order to get a good 15-20 degree lower temps on your CPU.

I would make a small sacrifice in the CPU to get a better quality monitor.

  • CPU – 11400 is great for gaming. Good value for a solid all-rounder.
  • Cooler – high value, easily handles the 11400.
  • Mobo – good value, good connectivity.
  • RAM – 16 GB of standard 3200 MHz CL16 RAM.
  • SSD – 1 TB of fast NVMe SSD storage.
  • GPU – high performance card. Great for maxed out 1080p gaming.
  • Case – good value for good airflow and build quality.
  • PSU – high value for a good quality unit with fully modular cables to reduce cable clutter. It’ll last a few upgrades.
  • Monitor – great for gaming with a high refresh rate and low response time. It has good picture quality and viewing angles thanks to its IPS panel, and the height can be adjusted for ergonomics.
  • Keyboard – good entry-level enthusiast mechanical keyboard. Better quality than the budget gaming keyboards out there, and it comes in a compact 60% layout to maximize desk space. Your choice of optical switches – linear, tactile, clicky.

Let me know what you think 🙂

How’s this?

The GPU is in stock here for next day delivery: https://www.cclonline.com/product/353742/RTX-3060-Ti-GAMING-X-8G-LHR/Graphics-s/MSI-GeForce-RTX-3060-Ti-GAMING-X-LHR-8GB-Overclocked-Graphics-/VGA6251/

i5-11400, 16gb ram, 1tb nvme, 660w psu, 1440p 144hz monitor, decent starter gaming mouse that happens to be dirt cheap, and a good starter mech keyboard with hotswappable gaterons

You can’t overclock this but what you wanna do is unlock power limits in bios so that the i5 runs at its full potential
