Hi, I was wondering if my PC is worth upgrading or whether I should just sell it and build a new one?
My Budget is about £300-£400
I would like to use it for running Rainbow Six Siege ect at a good quality
I am buying a 1ms 1080p monitor over the next 2 weeks so don't worry
Thanks

Unfortunately, the screenshot is very small. Can you enlarge it please or post your specs?

Cheers.

Your CPU and RAM are fine. No need to upgrade the RAM.

If you want, you can always Overclock your CPU to around 4.2 if you really need to but make sure you stress test and benchmark it.

Motherboard is rather old but is fine. However it only supports 1 GPU.

The only thing Id recommend upgrading atm is the GPU.

You could go for a 660ti. Plays alot of games stable at high graphics. But it all depends on your budget.

Other than that, its a nice setup for casual gaming.

For your budget, you could get a GTX 1070, which is a relatively high end card. Keep in mind if you go for that, you'll need a power supply unit of about 600w+ minimum. And obviously a case which will fit the card.

What monitor are you getting?
What is the make and model of your case and PSU?
What exactly are you looking to achieve with an upgrade?

So, you're budget including monitor is £450-550?
Just Rainbox Six Siege? Any other games you'll be playing that are worth mentioning, or any specific programs you use on your system, like Photoshop?
Again, we need to know the make and model of your case and PSU before we can suggest any upgrades.
