  1. Ideally I didn't want to go over £200, I could stretch to £220 but don't really want to spend £250
  2. I got a Corsair CS650M 80+ Gold, its a few years old but should have enough power for a bigger GPU?
  3. Yeah I was looking at some used cards, the best ones close that price range were GTX 1070s, but they were generally going for more than a new 1660
  4. Hi all, I'm looking to upgrade my current GPU (Gigabyte GTX 960 4GB). I play at 1080p, live in the UK, and am looking to spend around £200. I generally play World of Tanks as well as other games such as Rise of Tomb Raider, LOTR Shadow of Mordor & AC Origins (And would like to play the Halo games when they finally come out). I would like some advice on the best GPU at this this price range. Currently I have been looking at an RX 580 8GB or GTX 1660 6GB, but would appreciate any suggestions! Many thanks,
  5. A 1600 is only £10-15 less than a 2600 though, that upgrade is surely worth the £15?
  6. Thanks for the advice. This is the plan so far: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor £118.37 @ More Computers Motherboard Gigabyte - B450 AORUS M Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard £69.99 @ CCL Computers Memory Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory £76.37 @ CCL Computers Video Card Sapphire - Radeon RX 580 8 GB NITRO+ Video Card £172.48 @ Ebuyer Case Cooler Master - MasterBox Q300L MicroATX Mini Tower Case £42.94 @ Box Limited Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £480.15 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-07-12 15:16 BST+0100 I already have a PSU ( Corsair CS650M 80+ Gold) & storage from old PC. I'm not fully decided on the GPU yet, but I only play at 1080p and the RX 580 seems to offer pretty good performance for the price.
  7. Hi all, I'm based in the UK and I am building a new PC over the summer on a pretty tight budget (£400-£500 excluding PSU & storage as I already have these). Basically, I want to know whether or not it is going to be worth spending the extra £70 on a 3600 over the 2600 given my limited budget. (in UK 2600 - £120, 3600 - £190). Thanks in advance, LS
  8. Hi guys, I'm building a new PC this summer and thinking of using my old components ( i5-4690, ASUS Z97-A ATX Motherboard, 8 GB DDR3 RAM, Corsair 650W 80+ Gold PSU) to set up a server. The issue I have is that my current ATX case is too big really for it to sit on my desk so I'm looking for a small form factor ATX case that I can use. Ideally, a slim case, as I don't need to have a GPU in it. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated! Kind Regards, LS
  9. Hi all, I'm trying to help my brother decide on what laptop he should get for university. Looking to spend £400-£500, but there doesn't seem to be a massive amount of choice in this area. He only needs it for uni work - word docs, internet browsing, watching youtube etc. but it needs to be portable (13-14" size") and have a decent batter life. There are a quite few pentium/i3 laptops in this price range but I wonder whether they are really any good, espeiclly as they only usually have 4GB RAM, and given that he will be using this for a atleast the next 3 years it needs to be as "future proof" as it can be Any suggestions would be greatly appeciated LS
  10. Those are a little more than I want to spend, as I don't really want to go over £250. Its not urgent that I get a GPU now so I guess I can wait to see what zen2 and Navi can offer
  11. My overall budget for upgrade is around £600, i'm hoping to keep my PSU to save some money. I live in the UK so PC components tend to me mor expensive I was only looking to spend a max of £250 on a new GPU, given that I need to get a processor, motherboard and RAM as well. The cheapest Vega 56 I can get here is around £260.
  12. Hi all, I am going to be upgrading my PC this year, but due to limited funds I am going to be spreading th cost out by buying components over a few months. Current PC specs: Intel® Core i5 Quad Core Processor i5-4690 (3.5GHz) 6MB Cache ASUS® Z97-A: ATX 8 GB KINGSTON HYPER-X FURY DUAL-DDR3 1600MHz 4GB GTX 960 CORSAIR 650W CS SERIES™ MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET In terms of processor I am going to wait until Ryzen 3000 series processors are announced, either to get one of get a 2000 series if the cost goes down. I am thinking of upgrading the GPU first as this is really due for an update. I'm looking at either GTX 1660 or 1660ti. I have seen the Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 6GB for £200, but I have also found a deal on the Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Mini 8GB for only £230, is it worth the extra £30, or would I be better off looking for a deal on a 1660ti?
  13. Hi all, I currently use a BT home hub 5 which hasn't had a firmware update since 2018, and despite BT assuring me it will automatically update, it has not, so I'm looking to get a new router. I'm looking to get a VDSL/ADSL router & modem combination and was wodnering if people had any recommendations of what to upgrade to? I've been looking at the Smart Hub (1) or the TP-LINK AC1600 but I'm new to this stuff so would appreciate some advice
  14. Yeah this is what I'm thinking now, especially as I've since found out that the firmware on the router hasn't updated since April 2018, and there is no way to manually update it
  15. I live in the UK and have been using a BT Home Hub 5 (Modem & router combo) for atleast 6 years now. I recently tried to utilise it's USB port to connect a flash drive to act as a network storage device, but ran into a problem. Windows doesn't support SMBv1 anymore due to security issues, and this router doesn't support SMBv2/3. What is the best solution to this? Is it just worth uprgading my router, given that a newer one will also have better speeds & coverage as well as improved security? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated
