Hi there,

I normally replace my PC every 3ish years and that time is coming around! My current specs are below and I'm wondering whether I should just replace a couple of components (and if so which ones) or the whole thing and just buy a new one? Any advice would be really appreciated!

CPU and RAM are fine, the graphics card is the only one I'd think about, but they're very expensive and hard to get hold of right now.

Thats a great system! Are you gaming at 4K? Otherwise I wouldn't do much other than get rid of hdd and bung an m.2 in.

Thanks both I use a Dell Alienware monitor AW3418DW - and just pump the settings up to as high as I can - with a max resolution - so I'm not actually sure on the 4k point!
