My father wants to start gaming after a very long time away (we're talking HL2 release date) and mainly wants to try some newer single player First Person Shooters (the new Doom for example) as well as the Fallout titles and probably games like Bioshock. He doesn't want to spend an enormous amount of money so we've agreed somewhere in the region of £700, although he'd go to £800 if really necessary. He's not terribly picky (he'd happily play the original Doom if he hadn't already completed it!) as for him it's more about the gameplay than amazing graphics, but obviously better graphics are preferable.
In the meantime, I want to upgrade my 23" 1080p IPS panel, so will let him have it for about £50. This leaves about £650 to spend on everything else, including a keyboard and mouse.
I've specced the following parts list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Clive_St_Helmet/saved/nYFTWZ
My question is: can we reasonably expect this machine to play newer titles at 1080p with a decent framerate? Are there any particularly weak components that I should consider changing?
Thanks in advance!
