So im looking to upgrade but im doing it with a budget of about £400, give or take. This is what I was thinking, anyone got any recommendations that don't push me over budget?

Most newer games require at elast 12/16GB RAM. That would be my only recommendation :)

 

...unless the RAM is an addition to already existing :)

It seems in the last couple of years that RAM requirements have gone down if anything, it seems with SSD speeds, it's not as necessary?

I never got my new build. Money came in and went out on other things, ill get something later on in the year now. If I wait long enough intel might release some new stuff, im so out of touch with their release dates and stuff its crazy.

 

My pc will put up with it for a bit longer, and try to get my setup soon. Ill also see what deals work can get with scan at the time as they change every week and work get a mega discount on specific items.

You know it all died about a month ago, been using the laptop since. Did the upgrade but had to do some deep clean on the components as they had some sort of bacteria grow in the coolant that clogged everything.

 

Also when building this morning I forgot to check the factory seal was good on the new pump, started pissing out the seal as it was only part attached, that was fun.

 

Booted new win 7 on the pc now and should have it sorted after work tomorrow evening.
