Hey guys I am going to buy anything pc for £650 - I do not want to build it myself so I would like some recommendations on which build to get for the best price..

I want to play warhammer total war, rising storm 2, squad , player unknown battlegrounds etc. Preferably running smoothest on the highest possible settings or close to .

As I am not building myself (I know it's more expensive but it's just not an option for me). I have seen some sites where you pick the parts such as https://www.dinopc.com ..
I want a dvd drive and windows installed also.
Fire away,!
Thank you very much

amd is slightly cheaper and comes with more cores. that means future-proofing against games into 2020. as ryzen 3 is the 'lowest' cpu, you have an entire ryzen tree to climb in the future. as you know games use cores, NOT hyperthreaded cores. currently most use 4, very few use more, but that will change over time.
with amd cpus, its important to get the fastest RAM, forget name stamps. thats like asking if you want a ferrari or a lambo ... get the fastest.

If you dont want a cheap cpu upgrade path (eg you buying now and will buy a whole new system in 3 years time) then by all means go intel. just trying to save you money in the future.

I understand that for games alone (currently with games using only 4 cores): intels higher clock speed > amd. so keep that in mind. but as i say, in future when games use more cores .... the benifits of having an amd will become greater.

if you dont want to build it yourself, you can try: pc specialist
choose custom build > amd > ryzen > ryzen 3 (large upgrade path for future) / 8gb ram (16 is your target at xmas) / GTX 1050 TI / 250GB WD SSD / coolermaster hyper 212 cpu cooler / wireless n network card (£8)
£670

hope that helps, other people may suggest better sites and builds
