Its my first time building a PC after finally deciding to risking a large sum of money on parts for me to put together. My XPS 8100 is getting slow and the current games are starting to show its age and lack of gpu power.

I have accumulated all I believe to be the necessary parts for a new gaming pc (with a £1000-£1100 budget):

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1.

HSF: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, 4 Heat Pipes Direct Contact, with 120mm Quiet Fan LGA775/1155/1156/1366/AM2/AM2+/AM3/FM1

HDD:1TB WD WD1002FAEX Caviar Black, SATA III 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 64MB Cache, 8ms

Wireless Adapter: Edimax EW-7612PIn 300Mbps Wireless 802.11 b/g/n PCI Express Adapter

RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance Blue, DDR3 PC3-14900(1866), Non-ECC Unbuffered, 9-10-9-27, XMP, 1.50V

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K,1155, Ivy Bridge, Quad Core, 3.4GHz, 5 GT/s DMI, 650MHz GPU, 6MB Smart Cache, 34x Ratio, 77W, Retail

GPU: 2GB Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 3X, 28nm, PCIe 3.0 (x16), 6008MHz GDDR5, GPU 980MHz, Boost 1058MHz

Case: NZXT Phantom 410 Black with Orange Trim Mid Tower 2x120mm, 1x140mm with Side Window w/o PSU

PSU: 600W Corsair Builder Series CX CP-9020048-UK, 80 PLUS Bronze, SLI/CrossFire, EPS 12V, Quiet Fan, ATX, PSU

SSD: 128GB Samsung 840 Pro Basic, 2.5" SSD, 3-core MDX, Toggle NAND, Read 530MB/s, Write 390MB/s, 256MB Cache, 97k IOPS Max

MOBO: Asus P8Z77-V LX2, Intel Z77, S 1155, DDR3, SATA III - 6Gb/s, RAID, PCIe 3.0 (x16), D-Sub/HDMI, ATX

Optical Drive: SAMSUNG SH-224DB/BEBE 24x DVD±R, 8x DVD±DL, DVD+RW x8/-RW x6, x12 RAM, SATA BLACK OEM


So are these parts worth getting or are there any better parts within my budget?
Also have a missed anything?

Good build but you should change the graphics cards for either a GTX 770 or two GTX760's. Also if you plan to overclock the CPU you will need a better a CPU cooler otherwise your temps will be really high.

I have seen numerous reports saying that after testing GTX 670 is better than GTX 760. Also the GTX 770 is £130 more than 670 which takes my total over budget :(

yup 670 is a bit better but you can barely see the difference between the two and even if you see a difference then gtx 670 will come on top marginally but if you go for the 670 then its kinda expensive but if you buy a 760 and later save some money to but another 760 to SLI then it would give you the performance of a gtx titan at around 560$ only!!!!
