Hi,

I am in need of a new PC and it will be primarily used for gaming, initially for the new Total war game.

The games recommended requirements are:
PC Recommended Specifications
  • Expected around 45-55 FPS on campaign map and in a 1v1, 21 units vs 21 units battle, default graphics preset set to “High”, running at 1920×1080
  • Operating System: Windows 10 64 Bit
  • Processor: Intel i5-6600 | Ryzen 5 2600X
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Video Card: GTX 970 | R9 Fury X 4GB VRAM
I am thinking of using PC SPECIALIST and this is a build I have selected on their site...

Case
FRACTAL FOCUS G BLACK GAMING CASE (Window)
Processor (CPU)
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Six Core CPU (3.6GHz-4.25GHz/19MB CACHE/AM4)
Motherboard
Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE: DDR4, USB 3.1 - RGB Ready
Memory (RAM)
8GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 2400MHz (2 x 4GB)
Graphics Card
NONE, I ALREADY HAVE A GRAPHICS CARD
1st Storage Drive
1TB WD Blue™ 3D NAND 2.5" SSD, (upto 560MB/sR | 530MB/sW)
Power Supply
CORSAIR 650W TXm SERIES™ SEMI-MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET

The price is £690.

Plus, I was thinking of purchasing and installing the video card separately.

Maybe this Gigabyte RX580 LINK £190 (TOTAL £880)

or AMD MSI Vega 56 LINK £250 (TOTAL £940)

As in my subject I have £1000 budget , so would you recommend any improvements or general changes to the spec?

It would be 1920x1080 display setting.

Thanks for looking.

Good call buying the GPU separately. Of the two cards I would say go with the Vega 56, however the RTX 2060 has a similar price and offers much better performance in total war games:

On a side note I would encourage you to stay clear of ebuyer though. They recently failed to honour the warranty on my rtx 2080 which was less than 6 months old when I reported the fault. Amazon, overclockers, aria and scan are very good though.
