I'm building a gaming pc designed to play most games on about medium settings I'm also hopping to upgrade it in the furutre when I get more money.

Here are the specs as of yet :

CPU :AMD Athlon X4 760k

Motherboard : ASRock FM2A75 Pro4 or Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H

Hard drive : Western Digital Caviar 250 GB Internal 7200 RPM

Case : Zalman Z9 Mid Tower

Power supply : Corsair CX430W Power Supply

Ram :G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (subject to what I can get on ebay)

Graphics card: Gigabyte Nvidia Gt630 or MSI GeForce GT 630

Operating system : Windows 8

WIFI adapter :TP-Link TL-WN951N

I'll be getting many of the parts from ebay to save money.

Any feedback on any parts way to save money with compromising performance please note I not going to get a cheaper motherbroad as I want to be able to upgrade.

Any feedback on the build would be appreciated

Also from PCpartpicker i cant find you parts from UK Ebay but take a look.
I will suggest you take give 50 more and take a DDR5 GPU.
You really need the OS ?
You cant find it underground ? :p

For about the same price,but i had to take another case than the one you like.You get a far better gpu in return.If you want the zalman 9+ because you really like that one,and it is a good one,get the extra money for it.

Do you already have a hdd? Because you picked a ssd.

That should already be a sata disc and even then i would probably use it as a back-up disc.
If you really want a nice ssd and this hdd is a sata disc get the next one if you have the money for it,

Do you btw have an old dvd player in your current system? It's not in the system you posted so i didn't put it in my parts list too.This should be sata connected too.

I just prefer to add 1x4GB Ram because you can make dual channel with another 4GB in the future.
And you can take 7790 not 7770 with this budget

I made changes to his own made list,i didn't make up this budget.
For a difference of 4 pounds i will go for dualchannel.
For the hd 7790 the xfx 450watt will do just perfectly and still save money.
You forgot the wifi card.
For overclocking i wouldn't choose the msi board,i think the ts will go for that in the future looking at the comment in the op.
