  1. maybe a ssd or a sandisk readycache?
  2. Spec looks fine, though when you consider postage costs it might work out cheaper reducing the number of suppliers. Have you considered buying an SSD as a system drive and a larger HDD for games/movies etc

    i would have put an r9 290 with a custom cooler like the sapphire tri-x but i couldn't find one :)
    The cpu i basically the same for cheaper. Nobody needs an optical drive, but if you need, you can buy it i don't mind. The gpu is much much much better, this is the most important part for gaming ;)
    The memory is cheaper and the psu is a corsair one- not the best corsair made psu, but perfect for budget users :)
  4. if you can wait a week or 2 they should show up eventually... if not go for the gtx770. the 290-s will probly sell out the instant they show up.
  5. If you can extend your budget a little bit to like 800 pounds, you could buy a better case or another 8gb of memory :)
  6. I will maybe look into getting an SSD later on.
  7. Yeah i will consider where im purchasing everything from, just an overview the now. i will consider an SSD if i feel necesary.. I think 1tb should be sufficient is easy enough to get another if i need.
  8. No need for 16gb RAM i don't think.. And any case you'd recommend?

    Here's the final list now. The 40 pounds left out for the custom cooled r9 290, because i could find only reference cooled ones, which are terrible. The sapphire tri-x will cost IMO exactly 40 pounds more (like in my country). And about the case, it's just plain awesome. You get a legendary haf-x, with the same features within a mid-tower. You watch some reviews ;)
  10. And probably you could get a B85 mobo for cheaper and leave the money for an optical drive if you need one. If you don't need it, you can stay with this build.
  11. Are the 290's not having problems with cooling etc just now? case seems a little pricey for my budget i may just stickw ith the 300r

    No the tri-x cooler has fixed the r9 290's thermal and noise problems. Just read some reviews about it.
  13. Ah okie what's best price you can find for it?
    Did u say £305+£40??

    I don't know just search for it on the site you are buying from. But this custom card was released only a week ago so you'll likely be waiting for it.
