  1. Just checked out your components and they will all play together nicely (no problem with that wireless adapter).

    Bonus thoughts: maybe higher wattage PSU to give you some upgrade head-room and an OS SSD would be rockin with this setup.
  2. What's your budget?

    Thanks very much mate, appreciate it. I'll defiantly think about the extra wattage PSU but I 99% sure I won't be able to afford a decent SSD so might wait a year or so until there cheaper

    I don't want to go over £800 but I could probably go to £850 if pushed. That's like $1200-$1300 if your in the US

    Firstly thanks very much Blackbird for the thought put into this build. 2 questions. Do you feel the cheaper motherboard will be able to do as a good a job as the other more expensive one and do you feel that the graphics card will be worth the extra £150 (will it be a huge step up bearing in mind I'm probably only going to be playing in 1080p).
  8. Yes this system will give great performance.YES and YES.
