BitFenix Prodigy Build €500-€600

Looking to build a gaming system in a BitFenix Prodigy for around €500, obviously I'm not expecting anything amazing for this kind of money but I want to get the best possible components. Don't need an OS. I am open to switching to a full size case if it means getting a considerably better machine for the money, anybody got any advice :)

  1. go with micro ATX instead, better price/performance and no temp issue
  2. Please post your country of origin and the store you're buying from and that will help to suggest parts. If you don't know of any check the master sticky at the top of this forum.
  3. I'm in Ireland, I'll probably buy from overclockers.co.uk
  4. So this is what I've come up with, it's slightly over budget and there's no HDD but I have one I can use for now and I'll get a bigger one and an SSD later
