    Hey guys
    i am probably selling just my tower for £200(or do you think i could
    probably get a bit more for it??)

    basically it will leave me with £300-£400 for a new tower better than my current one

    or my other option is to buy this on finance.which i nearly did today

    suggestions guys.:toast:

    What do you use your pc for?

    Heavy gaming? Mostly surfing? Editing videos?

    It looks good, a lil expensive 550 lbs seem more reasonable, i'm curious what kind of mobo they use on that build, so that you can plan ahead what is upgradeable.

    About your current build, I would switch out the 1TB and 320GB HDD leave the 160GB, I'm pretty sure the PSU on that link is cheaper than yours, so switch them, and sell it for $300 obo (not included monitor).

    can you not build your own?? whats your max budget & do you have to go through PC world?? - their the worst people to buy hardware from, my local still has a 4870 1gb on the shelf for £130. they aint gonna be shifting that card anytime soon with that price

    Do you want an upgrade or need an upgrade? Getting a loan just to play games is not the most financially sound decision you can make, you know.

    well with funds not being on my side at the moment

    having just payed for a new passport,alton towers for the weekend
    and a week in cyprus,things are quite tight

    maybe the best thing to do is save until i get enough funds to build

    Yes, its best for you to wait until you have extra cash lying around that you can comfortably spend before thinking of upgrading.
