My budget is £500 but I'd rather it be closer to £400. Ideally things that will keep me going for a year or two but with the ability to improve over time.
Now, I'm clueless and have no real idea of where to start. All I want is something than can run FM and run Skyrim decently. The other games I'll be playing will be old as fuck games and Terraria.

Some of the things I've decided on but am willing to listen to suggestions are a i3 2100 for my CPU and maybe a 550 Ti for my graphics card. Although as this is one of the things I'll be upgrading first maybe something worse would be more suitable for the time being? Also 4gb RAM and 500gb for my HD. Motherboard and PSU I have no idea about.


Help away please.

They acquired Bioware sometime towards the end of the development of Dragon Age and ME2. ME3 had been in production shortly after ME2's development was started, so they only game EA has fully been allowed to fuck up is DA2, which they did a pretty good job at.

Bear in mind, ANYTHING that doesn't come from Edmonton Bioware is not true Bioware. TOR in point.

Hey man, sorry to sound like im trying to flog something; if your thinking of building it yourself, I have my old pc at home [in uni at the moment], its got 4gb ram, 500gb harddrive, with windows 7, a 3gb dual core processor and 512mb graphics card.

It's fine for running skyrim pretty reasonably and can handle crysis and the like too.

If your after any parts etc. send me a mail. Cheers

I'm not someone who is against second hand things as I generally think they're a great way of getting something expensive for a lot cheaper (guitars for example) but this is something I'd rather get new. Sorry brah.

Overclockers is usually quite good for reasonably priced PC parts.

Playing ME3. Enjoying it a lot although I can't say that I'm used to having a small amount of squaddies with me, probably for the best though. I met a few from ME2 which has proven to be very interesting so far. Can't wait to get back to it.


One observation I did make about the game is that Kaidan has microscopic nipples. What the fuck is with that?
If I like it, It's probably awful.

I hate Ashley slightly more and I always wanted to bang Liara. I'm still convinced people only play the Mass Effect games for all the alien poon.
