Helloooo,

So recently, I have been away for over three weeks and that's due to my computer breaking down totally. Turns out I'm going to have to go shopping for a new computer.

I personally am not much of a computer expert/my knowledge is extremely limited on the subject.

I currently have a budget of 25,000 Egyptian Pounds. Using this website: http://www.egprices.com/en/category/computers to give me the approximate prices. 25000 is approximately 1368.07 USD. No idea if that's much but that's my current budget plan. It may extend slightly but I would be best if it doesnt haha.

The only thing I currently have in mind is a GTX 1080, as my graphics card choice. Need help choosing the other componenets, also one thing I noticed was the fact that there's more than one version to that GTX. So I need help figuring out the rest of the components. I should start purchasing those components this week.

Cheers

You're not gonna get a PC with a 1080 in for that price. Perhaps go for a 1060 and an i7 4790k cpu.

I don't have alot of knowledge either, but I'll do research for you and give you a PC part picker link once I'm done.

That's what I've set togheter, this has no WiFi capabilities and has no operating system, don't waste money on Windows 10, just make a bootable USB from your current computer and use an activator to activate windows with no cost.

There'll be some flaws in this build, any expert can probably give you alot of tips on how to increase efficiency and get more out of your money, I just went on Intel ARK to get the max. supported memory bandwith, and maxed everything out, and it's still below your price range.

From what I know, this build should easily be able to run most modern games on 1080p and high settings.

Its a tad bit more than my budget, but it'll do. I have some doubts when it comes to coolers as I tried to search for the most decent ones but idk what's best tbh.

I took a look over the parts list, it looks decent but I guess I could push the budget further to increase the specs. Thoughts on my list?

You're going overkill, 32 gigabytes of RAM is extremely unnecessary, 16 is more than enough.
A 1080 is overkill aswell, that's good if you want to play games in 4k, take a 1060 for half the price if you don't have a 4k monitor.

What you have is overkill, I still recommend my build, it's cheaper and can run any game at high settings on 1080p.

EDIT: On my build you don't need to spend money on a CPU cooler unless you plan on overclocking since the 4790K is haswell and comes with a CPU cooler, 6700k is skylake and doesn't come with a cooler.
