In early January i decided that my computer was getting old and slow. I thought rather than upgrading it would just start from the begining with a new computer and upgrade that when it needs it.
However I'm not too good with PC components. I've looked at many reviews, specs and info sites but I'm still not entirely sure if what I'm buying is ok.
What I'm aiming at is an average quality gaming PC. My budget is £650-£800 (maybe abit more if its worth it).
I've mainly been using customize web sites to practice putting together a spec and get an idea of final prices. My question is if this spec i put together on PCSPECIALIST.CO.UK - Custom PCs, Custom Computers, Custom PC, Desktop PC, Custom Built Computers, Gaming PC
is worth the money and if its an average gaming computer that can be upgraded as time goes on.
Total price £809
