Hi all.

I've been out of the PC game for quite some time, and I've got the desire to play Cities Skylines. I'm not interested in running the latest AAA titles, I just want something that can run Cities Skylines and provide an optimal experience.

EDIT: I've found this system online, is this any good? I'll also add that I'm not interested in building a system

I think all that's needed is a very good CPU, GPU not as important provided its not a potato.

You can pick your parts here and they build it for you, choosing a ryzen 5 and a 570x, with a cooler master air cooler and 8 GB of ram.

Pick a 240gb ssd and 1tb sata for hard drives and you end up with a more capable system than the one you have..

You can upgrade little parts if you like, like a ryzen 7 2700 as your CPU or something

The computer you've provided should be good enough to run it on max settings at 1080p 60fps, you might have to lower some settings to high but overall you shouldn't run any trouble with that rig.

I've also found this, it has an i7 CPU and an SSD. I'm thinking maybe it could also handle Planet Coaster, though I know that can be quite demanding

I'm running Planet Coaster just fine on high settings, maxing it is a struggle for my rig anyway (i5 4690, GTX970)

Thanks for the replies, I bought the i7 system and after a few days I upgraded the RAM from 8GB to 16GB. so far i'm very happy with the performance in Cities Skylines and also with Planet Coaster, though I limit the latter to medium settings
