    Thanks all for the advice , appreciate it! The max i want to spend is around 22-23k and that needs to include a monitor,mouse and keyboard. COuld either @Gamer-noob-404 or @StarBound or anybody else who feels they can contribute provide me with a pc parts list to build a pc around my price bracket. I dont mind building my own pc its just in the past i've used amazon for my pc parts and now that im back in SA i dont have a clue who sells parts at the best prices. Again thanks for the advice and help.

    Wholly agree with using WootWare. They're awesome in both quality and service.

    Thanks for the build! I might put in a little more and upgrade the GFX to a 1070. Interested to see if anybody else has a build to share

    I'll offer some advice, as I've just done this.

    Some questions, though - do you mind going second hand on some components? AMD or Intel, or does it not matter?

    Do you mind importing? Oh, and are you planning on OC'ing?

    AMD or Intel is fine, really dont want to import id prefer to buy all parts from one place. Might decide to OC at a later time but for now its not essential.

    Comes to R23006. Windows is R299, keyboard, mouse and shipping extra. Bear in mind, if you're willing to go secondhand/oem on some items, you should be able to go cheaper.

    Can I ask you maybe select your own monitor and say which monitor you chose? Will give an idea on the graphics card and I assume you want a 1070. But it also gives an idea of what budget there is to work with afterwards. Do that with the case too, the mouse and keyboard and windows. I can recommend whats in the box.
