    Hi everyone,

    A little help please. My PC has recently given up, fell down, went kaput, and it is time that certain parts were replaced.

    I have a budget of £400 to £450 and require motherboard, CPU, and memory.

    I have no preference towards either Intel or AMD and no particular brand loyalty on anything else either. It will be used for a bit of gaming every now and then, things like Fallout 4 being the most taxing.

    As far as memory amount goes, I really don't know what's needed these days, I used to run 6GB then went up to 24 as I got a seriously good deal on an end of line triple channel kit, most bundles that I have seen seem to come with 8 now.

    Graphics-wise I will be retaining my 980Ti so that is sorted, drives are all OK, possibly a little slow by current standards but useable. PSU should be fine (Corsair 650W modular jobbie), case is sticking around (Coolermaster ATCS 840 so board size will not be a problem at all...).

    I wouldn't normally be asking this sort of stuff, but it has been a while to say the least, I am coming from a socket 1366 board which originally had an i7 920 on it so.... yeah, things have moved on somewhat since then.

    Thanks everyone
