Have £500-£600 to spend on a gaming pc

I have no idea what to look for what to spend. Or if to build one.

All i want to do is cod ghosts, titan falls when they come out 

dirt3 ,fifa 13 football manager 2013, dota2, pro cycling manager, battlefield 3, left for dead2 and war frame look good and ill like to able to play them on middle settings aleast. Highest would be a treat. 

I also would like on mosts the option that say in 3 years when 4k is out and im forced to play on low settings that each part is capable of an upgrade. 

I am 90% of this going to be used solely for gaming with maybe itunes running in the background feedingthe apple tv with films and foobar for music. 

Must stress emails , downloading . Converting films ect dropbox all be ran on my laptop. 

Really need to post me some links to hot deals im looking to make the buy july 11-14th many thanks.

Just source the parts and build your own... it IS easy.         :type:

Check Google for all of your questions.      Smile

Being looking at the gladiator fx 650 ti gaming unit from aria so there selling it for 549.99 and the parts are 519.99 is it really not worth 30pound for them to build it.

Aria / Scan

Both great from experience a while back. 

I bought a PC from Aria many moons ago and it cost less than the sum of its parts (for homebuild).

Just specify a decent sized ATX tower with easy access then you're set for future upgrades.

Mine is now a totally different PC.

Upgraded all HDDs, Motherboard x3, memory, case, PSU... Smile

I guess it's a home build now.

500 W PSU minimum.

128GB SSD is quite small still.

Windows 8 is faster but some do not like the interface. I love it.

Get the better case.

 

Avoid Mesh Computers at all costs. Even eBay might be good with some reputable sellers on there. You need a fairly decent graphics card for those games mind.  GTX 660 minimum. Smile Your budget might need stetching a bit.

RE: Have £500-£600 to spend on a gaming pc

Cause it was on offer they would not hounor the price if i swapped parts so ive paided 556 and the case psu ill have to upgrade one at time in the next year. Then this time year ill look at changing the 64gb ssd but the guy said its fine as all its doing is the os and im getting a 500gb hardrive for games ect. 

I was going to get up the budget but could not go much higher so im hoping the geforce 650 ti boost will do . Im hoping to get 2010-present games on medium- high settings and the 2000-2009 games on high to ultra. 

Low medium high or ultra where does a ps3 and 360 sit and also where would a ps4 xbox one sit

The Geforce 650TI boost can just about play Cryris on high detail at 1080p so you should be fine.

The 650Ti boost is about half the expected performance of the PS4 GPU, and about 4x the PS3/Xbox360 GPUs

RE: Have £500-£600 to spend on a gaming pc

Thanks joe im happy with that so all the new games for the 24months i should get them running smooth on medium. Ive heard the ps4 will have 8core 1.6ghz so that sure how that stacks up against 6 core 3.4ghz. Ive also read xbox 360 and ps4 run 1080i at 30fps and th ps4 and xbox one will run 40pfs-50pfs im hoping to get 40-45pfs out of my pc so finger crossed it works out me. Ive joined steam so really excited about using pc for games.
