Computer upgrades (GFX, PSU, RAM and Case
Written by: Slothsy - 17:48 Nov-06-2013

I have a budget of roughly £300 and I was wonder what the best BUT cheapest graphics card is (I'm going to be playing some roughly new games, maybe Battlefield 4 or 3) and the cheapest power supply but is also good and a Case which RAM. Please help me, this war with my pile'o'crap has been going on for too long now and I'm starting to build on games on games that I can't even run at a minimal frame-rate ;-;

 

EDIT


I have made a list up containing items. Are these worth the amount of money they cost?


CASE:

PSU:

Almost all brands do, it's because the HD7000 are quite conservatively clocked.

Cases are for pussies, just throw your stuff on the ground or on your desk ;)
I'd get another case, one with cable management options...

I'd go for the 7850. It's the same price and about as good, but it's got a huge OC potential.
Also the corsair builder series have my preference, look for the CX500m, it's modular and has nice black cables.

See how much W is your PSU than find a card that should go fine to that PSU (idk where to see how much W psu is sorry) because 7770 wants a 500W PSU!
