This is my build I'm using right now
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Power supply is XFX - TS 650 W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply
Monitor is asus ve247h
Was wondering if you guys could suggest any upgrades? I currently use a small ssd for Windows etc not listed above.
Budget I'd say £500-600 if possible. Don't need any peripherals as I have. I don't play alot of games just a little overwatch, some gta, far cry etc.
I'm open to keeping with intel or going ryzen I just want something that will last a couple of years =)
Seen a sort of good deal on a 32inch hp omen monitor too, if that would be a decent upgrade also =)
The gaming experience is OK but like most folk on here it's always trying to get better haha =)
the GPU good, keep it. get a ryzen 2600 another ram stick and an SSD. if you wanted to boost performance, getting faster ram would help
Probably would go for Ryzen.
Monitor-wise, unless you're not happy with 1080p, get the HP screen (the 980 should handle it fine, but you'll have to turn some settings down, so a GPU upgrade might be on the cards sometime)
The main issue is that you are on older CPU architecture, so whilst you could upgrade the CPU you will still be upgrading to an older CPU. Having said that the generation of CPU that you have is still good for current needs so an upgrade is feasible. I don't see any good reason to change your GPU.
Without making major changes to you system, I would suggest a new CPU, another stick of RAM and an SSD. I'm not sure what the going rate for G4560 is on ebay but you should get some money back for that.
Do you think this is a better route than going down the ryzen route?
Thankyou for the information everyone! It's appreciated. Will keep the options open for others to chime in also but will be checking the upgrades mentioned by you lot =)
I'm more than happy to go down the better route of upgradabity. I understand that the intel path I'm on now is most likely a dead end so I would be fine going ryzan as long as it could last me a couple of years. I am open to upgrade the graphics card but from what I've read it still competes OK for budget builds =)
Also I'm happy to change cases too. The one I have is OK but open to suggestions also.
