Solved

£600-£800 First build. Gaming

I wish to OC

Monitor is 1680 x 1050

Sli or cross fire doesn't look appealing to me.

I wish to play games such as starcraft 2, minecraft, anno 2070, civ 5, as you can see these are cpu intensive.

I will be doing animation and 3d modelling in the coming year so again cpu is important.

I love to use multi media. So at least 5 tabs open on internet. plus downloading music or Films. while skimming net is a must. no slow down what so ever. I HATE LAG ON GOOGLE CHROME.

I want a cpu cooler for oc. evo 212 looks like a good choice. also i dont have OS. But i do have a monitor, keyboard and mouse.

THANKS FOR THE HELP

    Nothing to do with you. I just remember this forum being full of life and activity. Now i have to make 2 identical posts over a couple of says to get an answer. Thank you for your answer anyways but i believe haswell is overpriced and there are no good mobos to oc it as well as ivy currently on my price range.
