Hey guys, my sister has recently gotten into Skyrim on the PC and is now looking to upgrade from her ATi 4670 and Athlon x2. She said that her budget was around £400, but some older parts can be salvaged.

She won't be needing a PSU, case, Optical drive, hard drive, peripherals or a copy of windows.

Realistically, all she needs is a CPU, Mobo, RAM and GPU but with that budget, I'm really at a loose end with what to recommend!

Thanks!
Intel Core i5 4670k | Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3 | Sapphire Vapor-X 7950 | 8GB DDR3 1600MHz | Samsung 840 120GB SSD | WD 500GB HDD | Corsair GS700 | Antec 302 |

Something like:-

A H61 motherboard (with Ivy Bridge support + USB3) - £40
i5-3470 - £150
2 x 4GB DDR3 - £50
GTX 670 - £170

No CPU overclocking, but that motherboard/CPU combo. does keep the price down.

This could be interpreted in different ways.
