More about building gaming hoping experts check compatible good
  1. yeesh my friend....post it in text form....we dont like clicking links.
  2. Sorry, forgot to do that before posting, fixed now
  3. DO not, do not, do not buy..

    Tell us your total budget and what you will be using the PC for and we will give you a nice build to buy.
  4. It amounted to £547

    But would prefer to go less to be honest, around 450 ish was preferred

    Gaming pc is the intent

    Just realised this is the wrong topic to post this in, moving it to correct.
