Someone put together this package for me – apparently it can run Rocket League at 144hz on max settings which is basically all I want the PC for. Would it be ok to buy all these components from America, or should I stick to NZ? Could I get something with these specs new or second hand in NZ for a similar price?

 

 I'm a total PC newbie, with no experience building or anything.

 

 

 

Cheers

Id go for more RAM (16GB) and bigger (240GB) SSD for starters. 

 

Buy local to save on any warranty hassles. Personally I avoid 2nd hand parts where possible, especially the core components (CPU, RAM, motherboard, video)

 

What monitor do you have ?

Thanks for your reply. I’m trying to go pretty cheap & apparently 8gb ram is fine for this game, and wouldn’t need much in the way of storage space. I don’t currently have a monitor yet – I’m starting from scratch. Kind of looking at going down this route rather than upgrading from PS4 to PS5, since Rocket League is basically all I play.

You'd be surprised how fast space disappears.....  ;)

 

You'll be looking at minimum of $300NZD for a 144hz monitor, and if you want to run it above 1920x1080 (FullHD), then it'll cost even more - then you also need to look at if the video card will handle it.

 

Welcome to the fun world of PC gaming ;)

1. stick to NZ - firstly shipping will cost, and shipping budget parts means the shipping will be like half the cost of the part, every part

 

2. NZ warranty

 

3. if you have never built a PC you will unlikely to be able to build it properly

 

4. the parts you have picked will quite likely not run it at 144hz for max settings though some games are resource intense than others.

 

I have a 6700K and 1080Ti and cannot run games at 144hz at max settings

also when you get a 144hz monitor you need to have g-sync or free-sync. one works with one but not the other (nvidia/amd)
