Gaming PC

Posted 7th Dec 2019
Hi all,

It’s been a while since I built my old gaming rig and I’m out of touch with components these days, but looking at OCUK for a built gaming PC.

What are people’s thoughts on this from OCUK?

I’ve got an old i5 2500K 3.30Ghz overclocked to 4.4 with an MSI GT 430. I just want to be able to play some of the latest games at 1080p, I don’t need 4K yet but in two minds whether to go whole hog and replace, of if any of the more recent GPU’s are compatible that would make it playable?

If you only play 1080p, Ryzen 5 with GTX 1650 super/ RX 590 would be enough.

Or Get GTX 1660 super if you want it to last a bit longer.
You will be looking around £700

Consider this.…tml

Thanks! if I was thinking of wanting an Oculus for VR in the future? I’ve always used Intel and also forgot to mention I’d like to edit more 4K footage from a drone I’ve got. Would that effect your thoughts?
Ryzen 7 for video editing.

With 1400 budget could probably afford rtx 2070 super…pc/

Build your own
you have before, it's not changed much its still basically the same thing, watch a video

also you have a budget

I'll say the best bang for your buck combo rn is Ryzen 3600 and 5700 XT
Pair that with a B450 motherboard, decent PSU but not too much wattage, DDR4 3200mhz 16gb (2x8gb)
SSD for OS and Harddrive for games (you can reuse your old harddrive) than its a greta system similar to what i have

whats your psu and case you could probably reuse them too if theyre still gpod, maybe not but who knows

As everyone else says build your own.

That way you can pick out the best value for money components and work out a future upgrade path.
