Have looked around into buying a new "off the shelf" pc but have found the spec you get for the money is not a lot in some cases so have opted to look into buying the components and building my own. I would estimate that i have a budget of around £550-£650 and the system would need to be multipurpose!!
I would primarily use it for business work (Word, Excel etc) and also need it to run Photoshop CC as photography is my hobby. My Daughter would be using it to spend time playing the Sims!!
I would not use it to run games but am guessing that i would need a decent graphics card to run Photoshop and the Sims?
Ideally would also like to use a 64 bit version of Windows so i can convert to 8+GB of ram instead of the GB I currently use.
I have done some research and feel confident that with the right components i can do this myself but my current stumbling block is the amount of components out there!! Ideally i would like to go for an AMD fx8350 or above or even an Intel I7 4770 if money allows with a decent graphics card with it.
My question to community is would you have any recommendations as to what to go for? I know a lot of you have gone down this build your own route and i'm calling on your expertise/opinions in this!!
Thank you in advance.
