Hey!

I'm new to PC Part Picker but have been looking into getting a gaming PC for about two years. I am now finally ready to upgrade my PS4 to a PC, and will be looking at playing GTA V, CSGO etc preferably at 1080p. My budget is limited to about £700/$900 (I am from the UK) at the moment, so I am happy to upgrade parts over the next year if that will help things.

Again, I am new to this and have done my best, so will appreciate any advice!

Thanks in advance :)

To be honest you could get either a RX480 or a GTX 1060 for that money both of which will beast it. i would also go for 1x8Gb stick of ram to make it easier to upgrade. i would also try to fit a SSD into your build once you have gone to SSD you wont look back :-)

Thanks very much for the feedback - have updated it to a MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GT OC Video Card and to 1x8GB of ram. Will look into an SSD.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it! :)

Don't get an R9 380 since it's last gen stuff. Get either an RX 480 or a GTX 1060
Everything else looks ok
