    Hi,

    Not really kept up-to-date with the current hardware with my knowledge being stuck back in the i5 Sandybridge era!

    As such, i'm looking for help to spec a system which would be capable of running PUBG, The Division, etc. Budget is only to include the tower.

    Edit: should say there is nothing to scavenge as there is no old pc now. Budget could go up to £650 also

    Cheers!

    What is the specs of your current system?

    You might be able to keep some of the tech for your new system.

    Mostly you i5 sandybridge? I'm guessing it's the 2500k? I'm still using mine and play the latest games and my PC is still running smoothly :)

    Is your CPU clocked as well?

    you're gonna have to post your current specs, buddy, to see if there's any parts that can be reused.
    you're looking at minimum, a mid-high end system here, and if you want a whole tower for £500 to play these games, its gonna be difficult unless you go the 2nd hand route.

    It'd still be ideal if you posted specs of your current system?

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £670.19 (includes shipping: £12.30)

    assuming you don't need windows/can source windows somewhere else
    you also get free shipping, so it's only just overbudget
    the 1060ti is showing as 1 available but oos on the basket :confused:
