If you don't want something that'll need upgrading soon maybe pc gaming isn't the best idea

If I buy i5 7400 with gtx 1060 8gb ram it will need upgrading soon

If a buy i7 gtx 1080 16gb it won't need upgrading soon

Is that correct ?

I know if I buy top spec it will need upgrading but not in next year

I had it custom made by them, took close to a month for them to get it to me.

I will say this i havent touched my PS4 since, could never go back to 30 or less fps now. Im getting over 150fps on most things. When the consoles talk about next gen thats all bullshit a really good PC is now is probably going to be better than a PS8.

How much did that set you back, Mofo? I'm considering making the swap to PC next gen.

Pffft, nah. Not worth it for me, I still play quite a bit but not enough to justify dropping that kind of money on it.

Sourcing your own/buying second hand PC parts can be a lot cheaper than using a 'build your own' type company. They are so extortionate. I did it myself and still have a top of the range PC

Agree with Dan.

I bought all my parts separate and watched a youtube video on how to build it.

If I can do it, anyone can.
