    1) Around the 450-£500 mark
    2) No, I was planning on buying a pre-built computer with this CPU then buy a GPU, I know you would say to build a computer as it would be better, But I dont have experience in building a computer and I know this would sound stupid, But I am afraid of breaking something.

    Thanks

    Hmmm. I wouldn't recommend anything beyond 7950/GTX760 class for this CPU.
    R7950-3GD5/OC £174.95
    N760-2GD5/OC £179.98

    2nd. I would suggest you then since you dont want to build on your own, to buy a PC then with more powerful CPU (smthng like FX 6core+ or a core i5+) without a good GPU and then add the GPU :).

    edit: I guess that you live at UK.
    Just take a look:
    3XS Custom Gamer 20a (FX8350, R9 270X) £876.77 inc VAT
    3XS Custom Gamer 10i (i5 4430, GTX760) £801.82 inc VAT
  4. Could you tell me your PSU 's model name ?

    FAR better than previous CPU.
    You can take this and either tell them to change the GPU to 7950/R9 280X or take it as it is and sell the GPU and buy one 7950/R9 280X.
    Then you will have an excellent gaming machine.
    Edit: What's the PSU of the new System?

    This is the CX430. It might be able to run the system with a 7950 but it needs an other thing. One more PCI-E molex.
    Picking the CX500 solves both the watt and the 2nd molex problem :).

    Sorry if I am bugging you xD

    How does this CPU fair to the 1st?
    AMD Bulldozer FX 4100 3.6ghz Quad Core
    Comes with a: ATI Radeon 6450
    And a PSU Size: 500 Watt Branded Power Supply
    Does not say which brand, But if i go for this computer i could more than likely get the 7950 right away, But again, No idea on the psu of which brand it is and what cables it has.

    Many thanks

    No worries.
    The FX4100 is about the same as A10 6800K (the A10 might be a little better).
    Well you will save money in the end but.... The branded CPU. You need to learn if it has two PCI-E 6pin or two 6+2 pin.
