Im putting together a build for the bf because he's still playing on his old laptop. I'm going to get all the parts form my local Umart (I know it might cost a little more :( but its convenient)
He wants it to be intel with one of the latest cards but we're on a bit of a budget. Doesnt care too much about the aesthetics either. He wants to play the latest games but they dont have to be totally maxed out.
We dont need software or peripherals and want to keep it around $1500 AUD or less if possible but there is wiggle room.
I tried to save $40 by getting the i5 9400f instead of the 8400 but pcpartpicker is saying I might have some BIOS issues - which id very much like to avoid since Im still pretty new to this. The total from Umart comes in at $1530
Ive looked at some prebuilt systems/youtube for reference but any extra help and insight would be much appreciated!!
