A return to gaming, need a PC!
 
Hey all. I used to lurk on here many moons ago but can't access my old account due to a defunct email address and poor memory :)

My old PC Exploded in a pop when I tried to boot it up after being in storage for 12 years or so. It was a cutting edge Intel p4 2.4C with a GeForce gtx 6800ti (all overclocked naturally) and could handle original COD as well as WoW :D

I'm keen to reboot WoW and probably dabble in CS and CoD if they are still going?!

Would I be able to build a rig for 700-800 inc a screen/Keyboard/mouse and be able to play the above in reasonable settings?

Open to AMD or Intel builds. Have had a look on overclockers and eBay to get some ideas but I'm about 18 years out the loop!

Thanks for the reply.

I ended up saving up a bit more and building one a month ago. Splashed out a bit more and it has been great timing with all this free lockdown time!

Built a:

Ryzen 5 3600 + coolermaster RGB aftermarket cooler
MSI X570 gaming edge wifi mobo
Gigabyte Radeon 5600XT
16GB 3600DDR
500GB SSD
1TB main
EVGA 650W gold PSU
Fractal design mid tower
Asus VG278Q 27" monitor

Plays cod warzone really nice in full settings as well as sea of thieves. Played some Wow classic too for more relaxing gaming :)

Loving warzone. It feels like a mix of old cod and battlefield zooming around in all the vehicles.

Hey good to see you're still about :)

Will try pop in to the discord sometime.

Saw a jackfrags YT video of a new 'counter strike with abilities' game the other day, quite excited for this :)

It will cost you a lot if you want your PC to run new games for the next 3-5 years. You should at least get 1080ti...

I believe that AMD Ryzen 4000 Series is a better pick at the moment :u03
