I have been told that it's XFX but about 7 - 8 years old so should probably get one if I'm spending this much. What would you recommend?

Make sure you backup any important files and then do a clean install of Windows with the new parts. Even if it boots up fine with the current storage you will run into performance issues at some point due to conflicting motherboard drivers.

Will do, I was just going to ask about setting up essentially new pc up but keeping old memory. Bought parts now. Thanks for your help today.
