    Very solid build maybe spend around £10 more and get 1866 MHz ram other than that amazing build! Very similar to the build I'm getting ;D
  2. Thanks, i'll take a look. Overclockers seem to have the best prices for ram with their 'this week only' promotion.

    one consideration for me was maybe getting a faster SSD possibly the Pro instead of the EVO. i'm nearing the top of my budget though ...

    Contradicting myself i know but a friend recommended me it I'll upgrade to 1866 I wanted to reply ASAP or else I would've changed the ram to 1866 lol (:
  5. Right good news! I have £100 extra to spend (just sold my xbox 360)

    What should I upgrade?

    Im thinking maybe a CPU cooler?

    If you wish but there's another option maybe pick up an i7 4770k and you could just about fit in a 212 evo. It will help you in the long run just in case games will use 8 cores also if you wanna do youtube in the future you've got the option or stick with the 4670k and pick up a h100i. The choice is yours (:
  7. Also if you stick with the 4670k you'll have around £20 saved som maybe pick up a Logitech g105 gaming keyboard and pick up a cm Xornet both pretty cheap gaming keyboards and mice.
  8. Thanks for the advice dude much appreciated! i think i'll o/c the 4670k to 4.0hgz, will that be comfortable if i go for the 212 evo ?

    Yes more than certainly, someone told me a 4670k and a 212 evo should get to 4.3 or 4.4 ghz. Have fun with your new pc ;D
