PC Build under 1200$

Hello,

I'm planning on building a gaming pc that is able to run modern games like PUBG at 1080p 60fps+.
My budget is 1200$ and i would prefer a nvidia GPU. I've thought of something like a ryzen 5 1600 in combination with a GTX 1070 8gb.

Can anyone recommend a good build?

Kind regards,
Dobbermann2

    This is a good build. But I would recommend you switch that Case. While it is decent to build in, it is extremely hard to remove the front panel for some reason, and the drive bay latches and holdings break quite easily.

    With the 8400 CPU you cant really overclock, if you want to do so, you might be better with this.

    I would choose the 8400 over 1600 for gaming anyday as the boost clock of the i5 is pretty good... http://www.pcgamer.com/intel-i5-8400-review-the-best-new-gaming-cpu-in-years/

    And this should be your ideal build...

    the i5 8400 without overclock EASILY beats a 4ghz 1600x at gaming and is cheaper, plus has the upgrade path to a i7 8700k


    ryzen is not an option once coffee is available
