Hey all!

I've recently been tossing around the idea of breaking out of the console realm and entering into the PC scene. I'm slowly trying to learn bits and pieces about building PC's but I think it'll be much easier to get your opinions!

I'm into Fortnite and shooters but also do quite a bit of photo editing in Lightroom. I don't need anything too major, just something that can be slowly upgraded over time as it permits!

Thanks heaps!

Moves you up to a much better video card for that 2K monitor.
