Card i used was a Radeon R9 290, just comparing on amazon it was a good £100 cheaper than the equivalent nvidia. I did a bit of research first, seems the only real difference is it makes more noise
Yeah, I put together my first computer when is was like 15 :) It's rather straightforward.

I'm looking into better video cards now. I'd say the i5 3.4ghz is already a toned down option
for a cpu.

The cpu is just fine as your main limitation will be the GPU bottle necking the cpu.
Get a good GPU and you're set.
The Powercolor Radeons cannot be beaten from a price to performance standpoint.

Depends on the game RE: CPU, something like ArmA for example uses more CPU than GPU
But you can get a lot of mileage out of a i5 and some overclocking.

My go-to shop doesn't seem to carry these, but I'll have a look.

Thanks for the advice!

Woah.
I got up to winter before I got bored so I guess near the end..

The ellen page rip off was particularly annoying for the whole game
Finished it off last night... I'm not normally one for games in this style tbh, but glad I took a chance based on such good reviews. Not been that immersed in a game's storyline for a long time, but the surprisingly decent AI of the enemies and weapon selection/interface were top class too.. the whole game just sucked me in. Awesome.
[+] Spoiler
ending seems to leave it open for a sequel, too... yes please.
Gonna get Drive Club, I think.

Destiny, Drive Club
Those are really the only 2 I have that come to mind.

Wait for GTA5, Murks... FIFA is great online and Driveclub looks alright; Destiny sounds like it's for fassies.

Destiny is great. Has a lot of flaws and an almost non-existant storyline, but the gameplay is a lot of fun and I can't stop playing.
