no i mean if i build it myself how will i find the drivers and the good drivers, and what type of motherboard would i need to do a future sli or upgrade the gpu instead
(Original post by just george)
Drivers you really ought to keep up to date anyway, whoever built the pc in the first place. Future gpu upgrades shouldnt be a problem, they are all compatible with each other
thanks. what would be the function of the pci-e slots, will i be able to upgrade with 2 slots or would i need more or what
the pci-e slot is the socket the gpu plugs into
So if you have one, you stick in a gpu. if you then want to upgrade, you take it out and stick in a new one
If you have two, you can run sli/crossfire, or just use one of the slots
A GTX 570 shouldn't be £330, you were probably mistaken for the GTX 580 (which is around £320 upwards atm), 570's are more like £210-£300 (£300 for a highly overclocked 2.5Gb version)

ah tbh I just priced up a few of the same components as you put in the top build and it came out at around £800 so not much cheaper really.
Mind if I got that right that graphics card came up at around £330?! Pretty expensive seeing as a £200- £250 card will run pretty much all the latest games out on high at the moment?
