This is my first time building a computer and I have a basic idea of what i'm doing and what components i'm choosing, but, since its my first time building a computer, i'm not too sure if the components I've chosen are the best, i'm looking to build a pretty good gaming computer, which could, lets say, play Battlefield 3 at low/medium settings at a solid 50-60 FPS. I'm trying to buy every component from scan.co.uk, but I don't mind buying from other sights, such as overclockers.co.uk, as long as its in the UK, lol. My budget is under £1000, here are the components ive selected, which all costs about £800, I dont mind spending more either
2GB MSI Radeon HD 7870 link Intel Core i5 4670K 1150 Quad Core link LiteOn IHAS124-04 24x DVD±R link 700W Storm Silent LPJ19-25 link Asrock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional-M link 4GB Corsair Value DDR3 PC3-10600 link 500GB Seagate ST500DM002 Barracuda SATA 6Gb/s, 7200rpm link
And I will install Windows 7 64 Bit. Please tell me if any of these parts are incompatible with each other or if I should upgrade, thanks
You could go with a gigabyte 7970 gpu that's what i have it's fantastic but only if its price fits in with your budget.
I would go with that but, as you said, its a bit over my budget, I would be willing to spend only another 100 on what I already have, so, maybe a 7950 would do, but im not sure if I should upgrade or not...
Alright, thanks everyone who helped me, the new list is this:
2GB MSI Radeon HD 7870 link Intel Core i5 4670K 1150 Quad Core link LiteOn IHAS124-04 24x DVD±R link 600W Corsair 2013 Edition GS CP 9020063 link MSI Z78 G45 Gaming Motherboard link 4GB Corsair DDR3 Vengeance link 500GB Seagate ST500DM002 Barracuda link Windows 7 64BIT Home Premium
