  • PS4 or Upgrade My PC?

    I have a budget of 350 I like playing a modded FIFA but not sure if that budget could upgrade my pc enough can it? my specs are

    windows 7 (not 64bit)
    nvidia gt230 1.5gb
    core 2 quad
    intel Q8300
    150w PSU not sure of model

    Are you sure you wrote the specs of your PSU correctly, mate? 150 watts?

    Your CPU seems to be right in the minimum specs for playing fifa 15, but you'd probably need a 64 OS.
    What about RAM? do you have less the 4 GB? if you do have at least 4GB you should seriously consider using a 64 bit Windows, because if you have at least 4GB and a 32 bit Windows, you're not using all the memory.

    The thing about upgrading is usually if you're strapped for cash, go part by part and build only when you have all the necessary parts.

    If you think you'd rather focus your budget strictly on gaming, maybe you'd lean more towards a PS4.

    Overall, I'd say a pc upgrade is more useful, but I guess it's a matter of priorities and personal taste

      hi mate thanks for the reply

      the psu I just copied off a site that has my pc specs pretty sure it said 150?

      I have 6gb of ram i believe it is DDR2? as you can tell im a bit useless with rigs I guess if it works out the same price or cheaper than a ps4 to upgrade thats the route I will take since I like all the mods but if its too much hassle I will just go for the ps4

      I tried to run the demo but of course that was before I knew about the 64os and also it said i only have directx10

      my pc is an advent centurion cq9204

        For that money, you won't be able to update your PC. In fact, you should probably just throw that PC at your parents the next time you get grounded or something.

        Buy the PS4 and enjoy the game. Invite friends over to play with you. Play with other people online. Don't worry too much about modding, the game already looks amazing and that will let you focus on actually playing.

          I have Two PC, one of them has a Core2Quad and the gamre runs and looks great!

          Core2 Quad Q9550
          4GB RAM DDR2
          AMD HD 6570
          PSU Pixxo

          You can upgrade your graphic card, the PSU and maybe 1 year later change the rest of the parts.

            Hi I'm he here,

            First your processor. If your clock speed is 1.7-2.2 or more GHz then processor is good.
            Now your graphics card. If you can get hold of a 500W power supply for 100$ (I dunno currency rates so it would probably not be possible) then get hold of the Radeon R9 290 for 170$ off of Amazon. It's a really good graphics card for the budget.
            I hope I helped, I just don't know much about building a rig so...
