    So OnceBrave needs a new computer and im trying to bust my mind out figuring what to do with such a small budget... :s his budget is still being calculated due to some complications...

    Current build:

    Intel Core i5 4670 £157.97
    Asus nVidia Geforce GTX 760 £169.99
    Sharkoon VS3-S Atx Case £25.99
    Gigabyte H87-HD3 Motherboard £71.08
    Corsair Cx750 £59.98
    WD Caviar Blue 500GB SATA III £37.00
    G.Skill 8GB Ripjaws X DDR3 £63.00

    What he wants is to play APB Reloaded, LoL and some games that are recent... Is there anyway to make this computer cheaper by any chance without compromising performance? (this build is somewhat near what im using.) ty for your time, SHiFT

    That build on its own is fine, but i can only recommend safing up untill you actually "need" a new computer. I bought mine about 4 months ago for 1200 euro's and i now already notice that if i were to buy the same computer today it would be like 200 euro's less. Just safe up and spend some cash on your pc, afterall gaming is one of your biggest hobbies (as it is mine). But if you decide that you just want a good pc that can run current games then i think what you have right now is more then fine. if you play them on the highest possible graphics they might have some frame drops but you should easily be able to play them on medium/high with 60fps with that build.

    Not entirely sure if they do international delivery, but the following websites allow you to build from a barebones bundle and add/remove parts until you're satisfied you have a machine that meets your demands.

    1.) http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/

    2.) http://www.novatech.co.uk/

    3.) https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/


    If you need help with hardware specifications (I'm just assuming you know a little here), feel free to come to me on TS and I'll happily sit down with you and tell you what you need to know.
