    My first build recommendations.


    what is budget
    what kind of build you want ,Gaming ,normal ,3D modeling and heavy video rendering?
  2. Umm....what?
  3. I may have typed the whole damb thing in the title box... Woops? Will repost. :/
  4. I have a new build in mind, need any help, recommendations etc.. Specific to the build, I don't have infinite money.

    corsair c70 vengeance case
    (because it looks like an ammo box in halo)
    and fx 8350 cpu
    geforce gtx 680 direct CU II gpu pcie 3.0
    seagate barracuda 1tb hard drive etc... Or similar
    2x4gb of RAM not sure what type to get?
    ASUS Sabertooth 990fx am3+ ddr3 pcie 2.0 Motherboard
    corsair h80i cpu cooler

    I am worried about:
    importance/compatibility of RAM and Hardrive
    If it will all fit in case as h80i radiator is denser and chunkier than others and the gpu takes up 3 slots and im not sure how to check if it will fit, via scale drawing lol?
    is this a good build? Is there anything stupid or improvements that could be made?
    oh yeah its for gaming
    Any help is welcome and I am very grateful for.

    Cpu is great ,MOBO is very nice
    yeah C70 can fit both H80i and H100i no problem use the top vent i have the same case.....you look at it and your in call of duty dream.lol
    ram you need to buy Corsair of G.skill rip jaws
    you own the card of planing for it?
    Tell me your budget :D
  6. Yeah the card has gotten very good reviews budget is £951, forgot to ask and am a little confused by power, seeing 900w psu's for like £120 then £40 ?? But both 5 star reviews???
