Hi all,

I'm going to be buying a Philips ambilight tv soon and can't decide whether to buy the next generation consoles when they release or to just upgrade my current PC setup for some top-notch visual gaming experience...

I think that some of my RAM is faulty as I encounter a few issues when running multiple programs and I'd assume I would need a GPU upgrade but thought I'd ask for some suggestions from some of the wizards that roam these parts...

Budget would hopefully be less than £500, here's what I'm working with currently:

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz
Motherboard: Z79S SLI Krait Edition (MS - 7922)
RAM: 12288MB
1TB HDD
500GB SSD

looking at £200 and a drive across the country! I can go slightly over budget so if a new processor going to cost me £350 then it's doable ... would the motherboard be okay to run i7?

I'm struggling to make heads or tails of that link, sorry!

I'm asking people to recommend parts that they've had good experiences with and that would fit into my setup...

I have noted that an upgrade to i7 might be worthwhile and have bookmarked your link I'll perhaps figure it out one day...
