    Hi, im looking to upgrade my FX-8350, R390. I play all sorts of titles, battlefield, Anthem (lately), assasins creed, ghost recon, oculus titles. Lots. Needless to say, mostly games.
    I play everything at 1080, i do have a 4k tv so that might be a thing in the future, not a major factor though.

    So far ive come up with this. Can you give me any advice on new hardware and alternatives

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £978.91 (includes shipping: £0.00) ​

    Yeah, CPU sounds so old that also other parts might need changing.
    Though unless case was already outdated by then that should be usable.

    Standard evga 600watt about 3 years. The osu is good unless those components are massive power hogs.
    Honestly im just after a good match between core parts

    That will be the cheap HEC built rubbish then. That needs replacing as well. Vega 64 is a power hog and we usually recommend at least a quality 650w psu, preferably higher, for builds with one of those in it.
