    What have you got at the moment? I suspect you don't need new everything, should be able to reuse the case and hard drive at the least and possibly the power supply depending on what you got first time round.

    £150 gets you a low end APU from AMD, not the best but it works...

    £250 will get you a decent discrete GPU and low end CPU/Motherboard/RAM, looking at low to medium settings depending on screen.

    £400 will get you a really nice GPU with mid range CPU/Motherboard/RAM

    Anything above is geekstown, where Gorkwings lives :)

    Need a budget to work to and what things you can keep from the broken machine to work out the details.

    Hmm thought I heard my name being mentioned on the net...

    Why do you have to buy a new one could you not just fault find it and then replace it for less money then getting a new setup.

    Define 'not a lot of money' as it varies from person to person. Person A could define not a lot of money to be around £300 while person B definition could be £600.

    By following some advice from the gorks you could easily trouble shoot it yourself it just the question of whether you can be assed or would you rather throw money at a new setup to 'fix' the problem.

    It the power pack i think as on Wednesday it was working fine, however when i turned it on yesterday there was no power what so ever.

    the system i have is ok just have some money so looking at getting a new one as all i do is save my money and want to spend some of it lol.

    if we work for an amount of £600 including build as i dont want to build this one what would i be looking at?

    You're looking at an AMD 6300/8350 system with 760/280

    this one is nice. but slightly over your budget you set.

    I feel a bit odd recommending something without an SSD though. OS isn't that important as you can get Windows Preview (10) and it's been surprisingly solid, only issue i've had is with an AVG popup regarding its system performance scan, so you can offset that cost till late next year if you see a model without OS.
