Looking for a gaming rig for AAA titles at 1440p. 1500 CAD$. purple and black theme if possible within budget. Taxes in ontario are 13% which sucks but it is what it is. No OS

Any help would be appreciated. And if you can toss in a monitor (not including that price) that you'd pair with the build.

Thanks PCPP

Is tax part of the budget? That would mean a max of $1305.

The warning is incorrect, should work just like the normal version:

Idk, I don't know if the guy wants to overclock or not so I decided to make a list towards pure gaming performance without overclocks.

Hello. This build contains the 3600 and the 5700XT, the 5700XT is designed for 1440p. The cooler master hyper 212 has a purple fan (desired to your theme). The case also has purple fans to fit your theme and overall this would perform very well.

3600mhz ram is good enough for 1440p

8gb of vram will help the system run through 1440p

hybrid 1tb drive for games, 250gb nvme ssd for your operating system and your favorite programs

The msi motherboard contains on-board wifi meaning no need for the wifi cards

750w power supply is enough juice for this build, especially at 1440p

the monitor is 144hz with a 27 inch display, it has a VA panel and has freesync which is amd's gysnc (gysnc is nvidias)
