Hi all,

Considering updating my PC. Have a budget of £400 for the CPU, GPU, motherboard and RAM. Ideally looking for Intel and Nvidia components. Thoughts?

It says Generic PSU under your sig

If this is true then you should get a real PSU as well

Get ready... Shilka is going to interrogate you about your PSU.

EDIT: what do you plan on using this PC for?

If your PSU ic bad you should not keep it

All you listed was wattage and brand that does not mean its good

This is what can happen

Thanks for the reply. Any good Intel alternatives?

My budget has increased to £500 for the CPU, GPU, RAM and MB.
