This is what I was going to order

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]


But been told I should bump the power supple from a 450w-600w

Bump the RAM from a 8gb to 16gb as games are getting bigger

And what ever this means ( this is the part of the messsage I got)

( My only other recommendation? Get another hard drive. Not another SSD if you don't want, as I'm talking a 1TB+ hard drive. That way you can run windows off of the SSD and it'll be super quick to boot up, but you can install of your games on the 1TB hard drive. That's what I do, and it works a treat!)


If anyone can re do the parts from this

To what I have been told to bump up to it'll help a lot!

Don't really know what I'm looking for part wise so it'll help thanks

450w is sufficient enough to run a 1080/ti if you get a molex/modular PSU. Not an issue there whatsoever.

You don't need 16GB of RAM, sure it is nice for more intensive tasks, and some games that take heavier loads, but mixed with the 1050ti unless you're doing workstation loads and or editing, makes no sense to have it (would do as 13 said and look around for a used 980/70 both are still good cards, and can be found cheap on reddit/ebay if you know where to look. That would make a little more sense for 16GB RAM). Get a hard drive when you budget opens up for it, you can get 1-3TB drives for as little as £70-40.

Whoever said you needed all that shouldn't be recommending. lmao.

Changed a few things around, most the same, slightly cheaper motherboard, no real performance difference. You still don't need the RAM or a better PSU. Better case, with more room on the inside, if i was you i would spend a little on some fans. Added the other monitor, it comes at 75hz stock. You can overclock the ultrawide to 75hz. Added a hard drive as well.

1050Ti isn't worth it at that price. It was worth it when I suggested it and it was less than £130, but not any more.

Got it back down to £700 to keep to your original budget, just had to swap to a better priced 1050Ti. If you're going to spend more, I'd invest in a larger SSD and/or an HDD, better kb/mouse, and a better/nicer case.

Much better and nicer case, larger/better SSD, nice RGB mouse and a much better, mechanical keyboard. Again, add an HDD if you want. I'd recommend trying to get a used GTX 970 or GTX 980 instead of the 3GB GTX 1060 though, since the 3GB 1060 isn't a great price. Honestly though, £180 isn't a terrible price for a 3GB 1060 so if you can't find a GTX 970/980 or don't want to buy used, the 3GB 1060 wouldn't be the worst option right now.

No need to buy case fans right now, you can add those later. For case fans though, I've got to say buy Be Quiet! I have Pure Wings 2's and they're stupid quiet. SilentWings 3's would be a killer choice, but they cost a pretty penny.

What for exactly? I'd stick with the single ultrawide for now and you can add another monitor later if you still want. If you're determined to get 2 monitors though;
