  1. There are two things I would you to change.

    1. A 7750 is really not at all good if this build is for gaming. The 7750 is not at all a good match for the 8320. But if you are not gaming then that is just fine.

    2. I do not recommend a PSU that comes with the case. They are of bad quality. And if a PSU is bad quality so it can damage the components and can also burn out. Hence you should get a better quality PSU.

    3. Make sure that you get the 64Bit version of Windows since you are getting more than 4GB RAM. Also Windows 8 should be a litttle better on performance.

    Also can you tell me what is your budget for this build so that I can suggest something better for about the same price. Always remember that there is always a room for improvement.
  2. spending about 500 on it, so need to get fairl good stuff for a cheap price. The graphics card i am unsure about but i dont want to spend more than £150 on one. I need to wait till i get payed to see how much money i actually have for the graphics card. Is that windows version correct for a brand new system build.
  3. also i am going to be doing another computer later on in a year or half a year when i have much more money which will be a powerfull system, this one is just to do till then and to learn how to build one, etc
  4. will the motherboard and cpu work together
  5. Well.. for 500 dollars, I suggest this build. It is a very good build and should be fine for gaming and every other thing.

    + 6 Core FX 6300 (8320 and 6300 performs about the same in gaming).
    + 7850 is much better than the 7750. Also 2GB RAM is minimum for today's gaming needs.
    + 8GB RAM is ideal for gaming.
    + That board is more than enough and you can overclock fairly good with that board.
    + 1TB HDD for all your games, media, etc
    + Zalman Z9 is stylish as well it has the all functionality you might need.
    + XFX 550W is a very good and high quality PSU. Also you would not need more than this much wattage, so it is fine.
    + Windows 8 or Windows 7, whatever you find to be better. They cost the same.

    I hope this helps. Take a look at the build and tell me what you think about it. Your feedback would be highly appreciated.
  6. i was originaly going to get the 6300 cpu, but seem good. i have a hard drive already which is 500gb but i will get a 1 tb one later on. will this handle current games in high quality?
  7. Well.. if you already have the HDD, then we can put the savings for the graphics card and get a much more powerful build for gaming.

    +3GB VRAM, 384Bit bus which is awesome for any level of gaming.
    + Performance wise you can expect more than 40 FPS minimums and average more than 60 on high-very high settings at 1080p
    + Also the 7950 can be overclocked to match the performance of the 7970 which was AMD's flagship until now.

    So this build is as good as you can get for this budget. This will play any game like a beast. Definitely get this.
  8. th graphics card you said about, will that handle games in high settings? whats the best card to get for game performance at high level for under £150
  9. Why do you want to go under 150 when you can still have such a god graphics card in this budget.

    This all still is under 500 pounds as you asked for.
  10. because i dont have 500 straight up, im going to be buying half the stuff on finance from ebuyer. the grahics card is £230 on their
  11. I would suggest you to buy stuff from the stores that I linked to above. It would save you money.
