With Fallout 4 & Battlefront on the horizon I'm looking to build a cheapish gaming pc, around £500. I'm sorted for an OS and peripherals. Help is appreciated.
Bang up to date and all decent parts.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Haswell i5 but some parts a bit more questionable. Could be done with a B85 board instead which isn't a bad way to go.
Managed to do it with a skylake i5. Best you can get for £500 will be a beast for gaming.
I couldn't recommend that PSU in good faith and I'd want the 6500 for £10 more but its a compelling build.
Something like this would be great
I wouldn't have recommended the evga psu either but I checked up on a review by Johnny guru and he says it's not so bad.
Edit: agreed with the 6500 but I wanted to keep it as close to 500 as possible but either one is a step up form an i3.
I agree with trying to keep the budget but not at the expense of a poor PSU. Even mediocre PSUs get reasonable reviews but that doesn't make the components any better..
It would work but it would be an itch that I couldn't scratch if it were in any of my machines.
Cheers guys, really helpful. Keep being awesome
