Hey Guys,

I'll probably be building two of these, one for a friend and one for myself. Need it to come around 500 euro if possible.

Approximate Purchase Date: This week.

Budget Range: 500 euro before shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, internet, online tv.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Complete build

Do you need to buy OS: No I have windows 7 and 8.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any that deliver to Ireland or the Uk

Location:Ireland

Parts Preferences: Performance is more important.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080,

Additional Comments: I want to get 1080p 60FPS. I mostly play Dayz, Stalker, BF3 &4. I'd like to play modern games and be able to upgrade as I get more money.

And Most Importantly: Tired of laptop gaming.
