For the last three years I've been gaming exclusively on - dramatic pause - my work mac. It's a decent machine that has served me well, despite all the irritations of being on a mac. Reasons are varied and diverse, but I'm now looking to get a desktop at home for general and gaming purposes. Partially because Civ6 and No Man's Sky will require it. My budget is about £800 (~ 900 or $1000) and for that I want something which is future proof for general entertainment home use including gaming for as long as possible. I'm not fussed about playing the latest games at mac spec. I was thinking of buying something a bit like this. The specs are: i5-6500 Processor. Better than average but not amazing, from what I understand this is not the most important thing for games. Should still be good enough for what I need. 16GB of ram. High end, but not amazing, hopefully should cover me for a long time. gtx 1060 6GB Graphics card. This is the killer. A new card recently released by NVidia, it's the cheapest of their new range. However it's blown away the reviewers and is ranked one of the best in value for money while being one of the top 10 cards in raw power. Can also deal with VR in case that becomes a big thing in the next few years. 1TB + 120GB SSD. I'll be honest the SSD is just a luxury, but one I think I can just squeeze into my budget Thoughts? Is this good value for money? Am I aiming at the right specs or are my priorities wrong?
