Best PC around £800 : Chillblast Obelisk ? & upgrade ?

  richmarks 20:01 14 Jan 2015

Hi .. getting new PC , this caught my eye , good reviews

Chillblast Fusion Obelisk

  • Intel Core i5 4690K "Devil's Canyon" Processor

    Asus B85M-G Motherboard

    8GB PC3-12800 DDR3 Memory

    AMD Radeon R7 265 2GB Graphics Card

    120GB Samsung 840 series SSD

    1000GB SATA III 7200rpm Hard Disk

Included Peripherals:

Asus VS239HV 23" TFT Monitor Zalman ZM-K200M Keyboard & M200 Mouse

I would scrap the monitor (-£100), and maybe upgrade to i7 (+£100), 250GB SSD and maybe 16GB DDR3

what does anyone think .. is the i7 worth the upgrade ?

Used for internet, excel, media, maybe light gaming .. but want lightning speed & future proof
