Do you need to buy OS: No

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

Location: Surrey, UK

Parts Preferences: Not really, but Intel, nvidia if I had to answer

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!

No-one? Apologies for the bump, but I don't think this is gonna get seen otherwise.
