    i'm giving her all she's got captain. Need to let her RIP.

    After 7 years of owning my gaming computer I've finally gotta let her go .

    Battlefield 4 is just too much for her. Payday 2 and TDU 2 was the last games it could play.

    Now to decide ps3 or PC.

    Edit: Misread that as "Now to decide ps3 or xbox"

    No gran Turismo on either .
    Just sold the Xbox as I'm not paying half my wages to play online.

    Think it will be ps3 but I have to decide if I want PC to.

    PS4 isn't too bad with price and I think I'd struggle to build a PC which was as good.... plus there's less hassle.

    It'd be mad to buy a PS3 at the moment - either get a PS4/XB1/PC or wait a month and buy a PS3 when the price plummets due to the PS4's release

    Should work from home lots so I can move my works desktop home.
    I5 and 4gb ram.

    Rubbish when you think it's sat there 80% of the time either with nobody in front of it or me there doing emails etc. Especially for the next week and a half when I'm not there.

    Hmm. Toughie. To bring this up to speed you'd need at least a new motherboard, CPU and RAM, so you're looking at at least 200. But given the next gen consoles are going to be 320+ it's a tough call.
    You can pick up used PS3's and Xbox 360's on eBay for about 130 (including a few games) which may be a decent stop-gap if you are willing to wait for the new consoles to come down in price and have a few more new games available.
    At the moment you are stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea I think :/
