Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon UK, Ebuyer

Overclocking: Yes, moderate (to keep it quiet)

SLI or Crossfire: No, not for the foreseeable future

Your Monitor Resolution: 5760x1080

Additional Comments: I would like a quiet PC. Want to play Skyrim with a shedload of mods

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My PC is getting old, so I'm giving it to my parents with a few tweaks and buying myself a new rig.

Many thanks!
