Budget: £1500-2000

Approximate Purchase Date: most likely this month

Use Case: Mostly gaming with occasional light word processing and general internet usage e.g. streaming etc.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes and no already have a monitor but what monitor would be best for this PC

Your Monitor Resolution and desired frame rate:
(e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200 or if you're upgrading please state what you'd want to get)

Overclocking: Potentially

Additional Comments: I don't care how the PC looks at all!!
 
@HamIsMad you preferably want a 1000W psu for the RX 7900 XTX. Try this build. The 120mm fan goes inside the back of that case for an exhaust fan and for one more quid you can get the windowed version of that case if you so like. btw this build includes Windows 11, AMD EXPO RAM and a decent IPS gaming monitor.

you put 850w with 7900xt in it tho.
I agree it's better to have some psu headroom with cards like aib 7900xtx
