PC Confusion!

Recommended Posts

Hey, maybe its age, but I'm really struggling with deciding on a spec for a dedicated PC for my XP11.

I currently run it on my Macbook pro, but really want to start setting up a dedicated station (16gb+ ram, gaming graphics etc.) so that I can run with as much graphic realism as practical in the budget - I just dont know where to start.

I have built PC's in the past, so am open to that, there just seems a massive array of choice nowadays. I've looked at off the shelf and ideally (as I'm retired) want to spend as little as possible (around £400 max). I have monitors, keyboards etc. so am only looking at the PC hardware itself - OS wise I'll probably transfer my OSX licence to a Linux install instead so a no OS build is fine.

Can anyone drop me some links to either self build specs or straight unit purchases which will also be upgradeable in the future for graphics etc. Used is fine so long as I can upgrade parts if needed.

TIA

Daz

You might need to revise your budget, that won't even get you a middle of the road graphics card, let alone the stuff to drive it 😞

😔 yeah, I realise that. The £400 was to get something useable that I can upgrade further as funds allow...

Graphics card prices are currently at least twice the MSRP currently thanks to scalpers and bitcoin.

I would hold out for a while for GPU prices to hopefully fall.
