    I just started playing Crusader II. I must hate myself. That game is brutal.

    Does anybody know any changes I can make to this build to help performance while staying in (roughly) the same budget? I'm most unsure on the GPU.

    AMD A6-6400K 3.9GHz Dual-Core Processor £33.54
    MSI A55M-E33 Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard £27.14
    GeIL DRAGON 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory £43.18
    Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £34.45
    EVGA GeForce GT 740 4GB Superclocked Video Card £82.49
    Zalman ZM-T4 MicroATX Mini Tower Case £19.08
    EVGA 430W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply £32.99

    Total: £282.83 (inc Shipping)

    I know it's a really low budget but I'm not looking to play many new or big titles,just games like Spintires, BeamNG Drive, CS:GO, Skyrim, LoL

    Having played one doesn't really help either... I've played quite some CoD and BF before I started playing CS. My experience in those games didn't even help me a little bit...

    I'd be unsure about that GPU too.. How much does it cost? I'd go for the gtx 7/960 or if you really want to press the price Gtx 750ti. I use nvidia myself but how do you feel about AMD GPUs?

    Costs just over £80, I've asked around on reddit and tek syndicate's forums and found that the R7 260x is way better for the same price

    Yeah that's most likely the truth! The 740 isn't made for gaming at all.
