Budget: £550 - £575 (can go slightly over if there's a big jump in performance for a little more money, but no more than £600) Location: UK Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming mainly Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): None for the moment Operating System required: No; will get elsewhere
Looking to build a new PC for gaming mainly mainly at 1080p; don't expect to run everything in ultra but am looking to get the most performance for my money, whilst using reliable components. I would also like this to be a base to upgrade in the future. Not bothered about overclocking, or looks particularly.
The build i've been playing around with has gone for an i5 4460 over the skylake around the same price (i5 6500), but am willing to be convinced otherwise, but everything i've read says the 4460 performs better. Pretty set on the 4gb 380 over the 960 but again can be convinced otherwise. Or a better gpu if savings can be made elsewhere, although i think it's unlikely! I guess where i'm most lost is motherboard, psu and case. Not bothered about SSD as i'm planning to add that later on and would prefer more storage over speed for the time being. As I say reliability and the ability to slowly upgrade over the next 3-4 years are quite important to me whilst sticking to my budget.
Thanks for any help :)
