Hey all,

My little sister turns 18 next month and I am looking for a gaming PC with a budget of £700ish. She plays games on Steam at the moment on her laptop but she can't play much due to graphics and RAM limitations.

Anyway, would need a monitor with it too ideally, mouse and keyboard not too important as I have already got her a gaming mouse and mechanical keyboard. She will be studying media-type stuff at uni too so a PC with a decent chance of editing films and images would be a bonus. No Macs though.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

for a GPU get an rx480, good bang for buck and will run pretty much anything on 1080p, there's some good monitor deals on here lately

On that budget I'd be looking for something with an i3, RX 470 or RX 480 and a freesync monitor. Including build costs and extras (wi-fi etc.) you should be able to get that under £700 if you find a good deal on the base system and it won't come out much above if you buy from someone that let's you select components.

If you can snag an i5 processor without dropping down to an RX 460 or R9 380 then that would be great, but it's optimistic on that budget.

nVidia cards aren't worth considering when you're buying a monitor along with the system. Variable refresh rate makes a noticeable difference to smoothness and nVidia is only supporting it on £300+ monitors.

Have a look at the desktop being discussed here. After the discount and money back it seems like a goody buy for £675, and would probably handle the games your sister would be playing (assuming she's capably running them on a laptop!)

I have G Sync on my £200 BenQ oO
