I was wondering what graphics card I should put in it. I will use it for video editing, web browsing, homework, virtualisation and Fortnite. I already have a 1080p 60hz monitor and will use that so I don't want anything super powerful. My budget is £50 - £80. I found a 4gb GTX 770 for £70 would that be a good idea? Thanks

The £70 for the GTX 770 4 GB is not bad, but I wouldn't expect too high graphics quality with that GPU on recent games. According to Epic Games Fortnite will be fine with that GPU, thouguh.

Youtube has vids with a 770 but different cpu so you might not get exactly the same results -

Medium Avg 76.8
High Avg 48.5

NP.

There's another one if you google "770 fortnite" but it wasn't as clear which settings were being used.

Video likes as much ram as possible, I would start with 1x 8gig stick that way you have more room for expansion down the road.

Could I add 2x8gb to 2x4gb. Thanks

That should work, but imo you'll still be better off starting with 1x 8gig.

As long as it works I will be happy. I can edit video on my laptop with 4gb ram and a Intel Pentium B960 (2.2Ghz, integrated graphics, 2 cores/2 threads.
