    I was go No to hook up to my 4K tv to play but not sure if it’s going to be good enough so possibly looking at a pc that could run and play the games all fine

    Any ideas or will I be better sticking with what I have ?

    Obviously I’f I do buy a pc it will be basic enough to run the games so like £200-300


    Thanks in advance for your advice

    You will never be able to play games at 4k with the system you have. If you want "4k" gaming at your budget, buy a 2nd hand PS PRO or X Box X.
    Even at 1080p, ATS may really struggle with the system you have.
