    Hey chaps last time i bought a pc was 2013 a little worried about building my own I came here and was so happy with the advice i was given ive come back.. 6years and my computer:

    1 x Intel Core i5-3570K 3.40GHz (Ivybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor (77W) - Retail £167.99
    1 x HIS HD 7850 IceQ X 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card (H785QN2G2M) £155.99
    1 x Iiyama ProLite E2208HDS 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor£99.95
    1 x Asus P8Z77-V LX2 Intel Z77 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard £69.98
    1 x Corsair Carbide 200R Compact ATX Case - Black £49.99
    1 x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache - OEM (ST500DM002) £49.99
    1 x Corsair Builder Series CX 500w Modular '80 Plus Bronze' Power Supply (CP-9020059-UK) £49.99
    1 x TeamGroup Elite 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C11 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit (TED38GM1600HC11DC01)
    1 x OcUK 24x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter (Black) - OEM £15.98 Total : £727.85 (includes shipping : £12.50). Plus mouse headset harddrive keyboard and win7pro

    And i can play vermintide 2 with graphics up to high. But time for a change, not bought an xbox1 or ps4 so that £400 toward the budget plus red dead, black ops 4, fallout 76.. might even sell my old spec only if theres nothing in it i could use.. if possible can someone spec me for £700 budget, and looking at getting a decent monitor for around £300.. thoughts on current monitor appreciated and if that £300 extra budget could be better spent feel free... thanks in advance

    keeping your current system and buying second hand i7 3770k for £150 odd

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £764.66 (includes shipping: £11.70)

    Vega 64 takes some power so new PSU. Does your Corsair CX 500w have a Green label around unit or Grey, if its green then the quality isn't good and worth an upgrade .
    with the above you'll have a 60hz 1440p freesync monitor and Vega 64 card to power so pretty visuals at nice resolution . Monitor is out of stock but not hard to find
    SSD to clone your OS drive onto or start over . day and night going from HDD to SSD !

    nvidia option and keeping your PSU - again dropping in second hand i7 .
    uses 144hz 1440p 24" freesync screen that nvidia has approved for G-sync use.
    some games you'll be able to hit over 60fps with 1440p, some you might switch to 1080p for 80fps plus gameplay :)

    Thanks for your response, I'm thinking a few years of future proofing if its another £1000 I kinda wanna know the games on the horizon will look great and play well so..*newb* theres a i7 for £199 at mo new from OCs is there a limit to what my psu and mobo can cope with? think I'll go with an nvidia option this time I'm not sure why I changed to Radeon for this computer.. I like the idea of going above 60fps and improving on my current monitor.. and the SSD is definately the way to go.. I either buy everything now or I pace it out over the next year or so. what are the movers and shakers regards these upgrades is there anything I really should get first to see a benefit (thinking SSD or monitor) and wait to see offers on other components?

    Could buy the display/graphics above. Then come June/August when ryzen 3000 series is launch with x570/b550 boards coming out. Should be in equal footings with intel , specially at 1080p and equal 1440p for cheaper hopefully
