Looking to upgrade from a machine that is slow and starting to annoy with stalls but doing so on a budget but want to have something that won't be out of date in a year, like to keep PCs for a few years and happy to swap out stuff.
Intel Core i5 7600
120GB SSD for OS, so boot speed better
2TB HDD from old PC, 1TB spare and saves copying lots of junk
8GB DDR4 2133 MHz
Re-use old Radeon R9 270X - which seems to hold up well against the mid to budget cards even though 3+ years old
Pre-built without OS seems to weigh in at £500
Ideal world would i7 7700, GTX 1060 6GB and 16GB memory, but seems new i5 is pretty good, and the other bits can upgrade in time.
Windows 10 Home/Pro, seems to cost either £20-30 via eBay - are the OEM usb/dvd with code ones something others have used? Or pre-installed at £80-£120
