Are you personally putting this thing together? There are laptops that can do that, but upgrading a desktop is the upside going that route. I am interested to see what is posted. I too am wanting to build.

I think it's important to define a budget, otherwise you will spent way too much (there is always a better part to upgrade = more money)
BTW with a budget of 600-700€ you can build a very good PC

I'd go with a budget of 600 - 750£. I think defining a budget is a good idea. I run Overwatch 80 - 130ish fps on high settings and GTA V with a sold 150 FPS On Max with these specs (about 9 months old now)

i5 4460 3.2Ghz (I Will upgrade when i have enough money)
MSI R9 390 (Discontinued but still buyable)
8G Of DDR4 Ram (Cant remember brand)
250G SSD (For games)
2TB HDD (For random files)
Windows 8.1


This is a pretty good build, cost me about 745£ back then, not sure about now.
And if your interested in peripherals i have these

Razer Black Widow Keyboard (Expensive but good)
Razer Death adder Mouse (Again Expensive but good)
2 AOC G2460PF 144Hz Monitors (I love these things)
Two Logitech Speakers (Like 10£ lol)
Blue Snow Ball Microphone (Nice cheap good quality microphone)
Racksoy Microphone Arm (Blue snow ball arm)
Logitech C920 HD 1080P Webcam (VERY Good Webcam HIGH Recommend)

In my opinion this is a pretty good setup if you can afford it (I saved up 3 Years for all of this lol)

In my opinion its O.K But its good if ya can afford it :) + Its definitely future proof.

Awesome build! Rocking the good ole HAF, don't see that very often in builds now.

How is the cardioid option on the Yeti? Whenever you get a chance to use it a bit I'd love to know how well it blocks out surrounding noise. I operate a few machines and despite owning a fantastic headset, if I'm encoding or rendering others can sometimes hear the whir of fans heh
