    Hi all

    Last time i bought new components was in 2011. Time for some new kit.

    Below is what i have today.

    Asus GeForce GTX 560Ti DirectCU II 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
    Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor - OEM
    Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 Intel Z68 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard
    Corsair XMS3 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit
    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2 CPU Cooler

    PC is used for browsing, moving media files, low/medium power hungry games.

    Budget £600 (dont require monitor or power supply)

    Please help :)

    and also get another 2x4gb sticks of ddr3 ram to make 16gb total (getting it used off MM is the best bet)

    Yup, with a low budget I'd do that too.

    I recommend you to get a amd rx 570 and get another 8gb of ram so it makes it 16gb in total.

    Otherwise get this below prehaps.

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £588.05 (includes shipping: £11.10)

    i stopped adding more pc components because it would be over 600 quid.

    Either way it would be a lot better if you can find another 8gb of ddr3 ram and add that to your build and buy a rx 570 and call it a day as the processor is still capable.​
