£1100 Build

I'm building a system for my mate, budgets around £1100 (~$1800) mark including a monitor. The system will be used for his Game Development coursework (Autodesk maya and other 3D animation software) and some gaming, any suggestions to the i've parts listed?

  • Ram: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-038-TG&groupid=701&catid=8&subcat=2429
  • And if anyone has any suggestions on a monitor the one i've picked is: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-VN248H-23-8-inch-Monitor/dp/B00DRPZBQI

Well i would defintely suggest to forget the i5, but directly go for the i7-4790K, because it will be much much better for his productivity work.

You also need ram, take something like G.skill sniper 2x8GB 1866Mhz CL9. they are fine.

GPU, if he needs an Nvidia based gpu for his software tasks, i would slam a 780 in there maybe.

+1.  If you can utilize OpenCL, look into an R9 290.
