Was recommended OVERCLOCKERS by a work colleague when discussing my desire to get a desktop machine.
I am an avid gamer/graphic designer (logo design on adobe suite etc)/video editor (hoping to start a YouTube channel soon) and would like to get into streaming potentially.

I do really need some help regarding a build that would allow me to play the top/newer games on high-ultra settings at the best fps.

My current budget would be between £700-£1050

I have two monitors already so they would not be needed, but i would need keyboard and a mouse added into that price also. Also, an operating system (but this is not essential).

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advanced!

Thanks for the quick response @orbitalwalsh

Regarding Intel core i7 v AMD Ryzen which would you say is the better solely for gaming?
Also just from my own 'digging' (by digging i mean watching random YouTube videos lol) i saw this build:

Im assuming that is way out of my price range, but performance wise would there be a huge difference (i dont want to replicate the build in the video btw, i was just curious!)

EDIT - If i could stretch to 1200, what would you change?
