What do you mean by condition? Physical condition?

Thanks for the benchmark tip!

Reason for considering an upgrade: I'm a casual PC gamer, been playing CS:Source & the battlefield series for years. Just recently bought BF5 and wondered if a £200-£300 upgrade would do a modern game more justice. But, it seems like I'd need use all that budget just on a GPU! BF5 is playable on my current build but I do get an occasional FPS drop.

Ha. Tempting but I can cope with a quiet fan to save £100+ :)

Thanks for the RMx tip, will purchase soon. Quiet and modular is good for £77 (Amazon UK).

Good spot. I assume I can simply reuse the cables from my current build.

You are right, I have edited the list. I (wrongly) assumed the link pointed to my parts list rather than an instance. Link now corrected :)

Here (UK) the 970 is a little cheaper.

Thanks for the tips.

After reading 'alot' of reviews I think I've settled on the Asus VG248QE. Only a few parts like case and and PSU left to do now.. :)

So, based on the criteria of 1080p, 1ms and 144Hz I have found these four.

The Asus VG248QE seems very popular, is it worth the £40 or are the others just as good?

With the recent site design refresh, I find clicking the "Customize This Part List" button on a guide and using the "Plain Text" link results in a easy printable version.
