Upgrading my PC - New Zealand

BRY0N

6 months ago

Current Build - https://pcpartpicker.com/user/BRY0N/saved/BNpHBm

Hi there.

Im wanting to upgrade my PC so that i can really enjoy the Master Chief Collection that has been announced. I have a current PC that runs fine but i feel that i wont get the most out of the experience when i get to relive my Halo days.

My ideal goals would be to:

  • Use as much parts as possible from my current build.
  • Run Halo at high quality at 60 fps (i understand the requirements are not out yet but guesstimating is fine).
  • Future proof my PC so i can play other games for the next few years (at average quality)

Some things im aware of:

  • I dont care for anything flashy (presentation wise)
  • I understand that the motherboard, CPU and GPU will probably have to go if i want to upgrade up a few tiers.
  • I would be happy if this was ~2000 NZD
  • I would be ecstatic if this was ~$1500 NZD

If you could point me in the direction on what to get that utilises the most out of my current build i would really appreciate it .

Cheers

Had to upgrade the CPU, which meant a new motherboard, RAM and a cooler, I also put in a new graphics card and 2 TB hard drive for some extra storage, but beyond this all the rest are your original components.

Thanks mate! I appreciate the effort you put into this! I’ll have a read of the reviews to ensure it’s the right and hopefully I’ll be blasting covenant scum in glorious HD. Just on a side note the Graphics card You recommended was cheaper then I thought it was going to be! Was that because of power supply limitations/ budget constraints or is it just a well priced decent Graphics card?
