Currys/PCWorld probably isn't the place I'd be buying from on finance. You'd probably be better looking for somewhere that uses Klarna or something similar.
I know eBuyer use Klarna for financing, and I think you have 3 and 6 month 0% interest repayment options, then 12+ month with interest.

Why?

That £1000 bundle you linked is horrendous value.



What are your current specs? Everything, including make/model of case and PSU please.
What monitor(s) are you using with the system?
What exactly do you use the system for?
What are you wanting to upgrade, and why?
What's your budget and how long are you planning to repay it over?

What monitor(s) are you using with the system? I've got a BenQ gaming 60hz monitor I will be upgrading this in the future to 144hz

What exactly do you use the system for? - Gaming, Call of duty warzone, blackops 3 custom zombies, gta, and all new titles

What are you wanting to upgrade, and why? I need to upgrade my SSD, CPU basically everything

What's your budget and how long are you planning to repay it over? - I do have some cash saved but would be better on finance my budget - £1500-£2000 without graphics or with (I could get graphics few months down the line)

I Would like i9 to furture proof myself, everyone is saying amd is better for value but I dont understand how becasue when I look up benchmarks online intel is always better am I missing something ?

Link is broken. Can you provide a working link or just list your specs please.

Why do you "need" to upgrade CPU?

BabyMacca wroteWhat's your budget and how long are you planning to repay it over? - I do have some cash saved but would be better on finance my budget - £1500-£2000 without graphics or with (I could get graphics few months down the line)

and how long are you planning to repay that over? 12 months?

Definitely don't spend a grand on an i9 to 'futureproof'! What benchmarks are you seeing exactly where Intel is beating AMD?

Well the i9-10850k is a better price than the i9-10900k, practically the same CPU for cheaper. However Intel's 11th Gen CPU's are expected to arrive in March if that's something you would want to wait for.

Overclockers has the Intel Core i9-10850k listed for £419.99 and I would pair it with something like this MSI Z490 - £139.99 or Asus ROG STRIX B460-F - £154.99

The new link https://www.amazon.co.uk/StormForce-Tornado-Gaming-PC-Processor/dp/B071YPDG39
That why I need a new processor its a i5-7400

If you think getting i9 is stupid can you recommend me something else then please I have no clue



and I look on cpubenchmarks.net

An i5-7400 is still fine for playing games @ 1080p60Hz tbh, especially with a GTX 1070.

Don't use that. Look at actual real world benchmarks from the likes of Anandtech, TPU, HardwareUnboxed, and GamersNexus.
An R9 5900X will trade blows with an i9-10900K in games, but the 5900X will win in pretty much everything else.
A Ryzen 5 5600X retains like 90% of the gaming performance of a 5900X/10900K for about half the cost, so really for a gaming system you should be looking at an R5 5600X IMO.



PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor (£309.98 @ Scan.co.uk)
Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX B550-A GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard (£154.40 @ Alza)
Storage: Sabrent Rocket 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (£119.99 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital ATX Mid Tower Case (£83.99 @ CCL Computers)
Power Supply: Corsair TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply (£67.97 @ Amazon UK)
Total: £736.33

This is probably where I'd start. Just buy the case and PSU, I wouldn't bother financing those.
Finance the CPU, Mobo, and SSD. If you can manage £100 a month and can get the parts from eBuyer, then you can use Klarna and pay it off in 6 months interest free. If you finance over more than 6 months I think then you'll have to pay interest.

Then, I'd be looking at a monitor upgrade. 1440p144Hz maybe? Safe enough to finance your monitor IMO, and you should be able to easily repay even a 1440p144Hz monitor fairly quickly.

Then either after or alongside monitor upgrade, I would probably consider a GPU upgrade. Again, financing whatever GPU you can manage in your budget should be a fine option.
