I have a budget of £600-£650 or around 935-1000 USD. Looking to game at high quality on all games, streaming some games, as many as possible really at 720fps.


When are you purchasing the parts ?
Around September time.

What is your budget ?
£600-£650

What are your needs ?
Gaming, I want to play all games to a high standard, medium to high graphics is fine with a stable fps @60 ish. Streaming is also something I really want to get into, I will play new shooters (i.e. Battlefield 4, don't plan on streaming that, but would if I could). My main games are WoW, LoL, SC2 and Diablo 3.

Your expectations from the PC :
As much as I can get for my money.

Your location :
England

Your preferred sellers/websites :
Any UK seller, someone reliable, I trust you guys know best.

Are you upgrading or taking parts from any older PC/laptop ?

Have a keyboard, mouse and monitor.

Do you plan to upgrade this PC ?
In time, need it to do as much as possible for now, as won't have loads of finance over the next 6-8 months atleast.

Do you need a OS or any other software ?

OS Don't mind which, I would like your opinion on Windows 7 vs 8.

Any other notes :

I need this computer to have a good amount of life in it, I need this PC as much for work as I do for gaming, I do not know enough in the AMD vs Intel debate, so either system will do (I heard AMD is cheaper), please give a reason though as to why you chose which system, just to educate me in the future.

I will overclock if advised, although I might have to ask how to, but that is for the future.

Please don't be too mean, I'm very new to this but hope to continue on this route if I can see how much cheaper building my own PC is.

Regards, Jack.

Can I just ask why you chose AMD over intel? Just so I know the difference

Better value at a lower budget.

Build is solid from top to bottom.

So this will be able to stream and play top end games for the next year or so on medium graphics?
