Hay all, so a friends asked me to give him some options PC-wise with a budget of 400 pounds.
Hes looking to play games like assassins creed, do some basic editing in photoshop and general PC usage.
This is what I got so far, hes got a HDD he can use along with butchering the old pc for monitor/mouse/keyboard/dvd-drive, is there anything glaring obvious that Ive missed? Or a much better option then something listed?
I'm thinking the cpu might be a bottleneck, maybe OC'ing to 3ghz would solve that but maybe not, if I could push him to 450, would it be worth stepping up to a E4500 or even E6xxx (haven't checked those prices at time of posting).
