  1. Web prices using Google ..

    i3-2100 - £83
    HD5670 - £60
    Asus - £45

    Using prices from www.ebuyer.com, I would prefer ...

    AMD A8-3870K X4 3Ghz Unlocked with integrated HD6550D GPU - £87
    Asus F1A55-M LE - £53
    2x4GB DDR3-1866 Corsair Vengeance Blck - £40
    Hyper 212 Evo £27

    Will make a nice general purpose system and give you good performance for gaming at medium graphic levels.

    Awesome insight man, but after scouting the local computer stores I dont think I can find those parts :|
  3. I suggest you spend less on the CPU and more on the GPU ie a pentium G2120 and a Radeon 6670 or better.

    Oh I'm not buying a GPU now, I already have the HD5670 bought earlier this year.

    But if I will be upgrading it I'll make sure to keep the HD6670 in mind

    Thanks for the input :)
  5. I'm just upgrading my mobo, CPU and RAM.

    Just wanna ask you guys if you think it is a decent medium gaming rig because im on a budget here.
  6. Its a good place to start what are you upgrading from?

    CPU: Pentium D 2.8GHz
    Mobo: Gigabyte G31M - ES2C
    GPU: Radeon HD5670

    Now that you mentioned the HD6670 I'm thinkin about upgrading my 5670. Does changing my GPU to 6670 have a significant and noticeable change?

    Yes a 6670 is a going to make a big difference but it is still low end, I personally consider it the lowest proper gaming card. If you can find a bargain on a 6850 or 6870 they are a massive step up. It all just depends how much you want to spend this article will give you a good idea though you can normally find cards alot cheaper http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107.html
