Hey guys, it's about time I thought about upgrading my PC as it's been hanging on by a thread for the past couple of years and now it seems like it's on it's last legs. My current specs are as follows:
In your honest opinions does this whole rig need upgrading? The graphics card is 6 years old now I think haha. Should I just buy a whole new PC, or could I keep any of the parts from this one? What I'm looking for is a PC that can play all the latest & upcoming games on HIGH (don't need it to be ULTRA at all) without any lag.
I'm basically gonna have an £800/$1175 budget for the tower itself. I've already got a decent monitor & keyboard, mouse, speakers etc.
What line of graphics cards should I be looking at when upgrading, in order to stay future proof for the next few years at least, and should I go i7 instead of i5? I should say, I am an avid Nvidia and Intel kind of guy and know next to nothing about AMD at all, so I'd be looking to get an Nvidia card and an Intel CPU. Problem is, I just don't know where to start and how to spend the cash correctly :/
Would massively appreciate some help, thank you!
