Hey guys!

I decided to build myself a new computer to take with me to uni this year and I need some advice on which parts to pick. I want it to be a decent gaming rig, too. I'm not fussed on being able to play brand new games on ultra ultra ultra high detail but I do want it to be capable to running most games at a good speed with good detail.

I already have a couple of parts I'm repurposing from an old system:

Harddrive : Western Digital 500gb
Power supply: Corsair CX500
GPU: NVidia GeForce GTX 760

I'd like to buy all the other parts for around £300, but I can stretch to £400 if necessary.

My only other requirement is that I wouldn't want the case to be TOO big. This is something I'm going to have to cart back and forth between my university and home when it comes to holidays and the like.

Thanks for reading!

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2Rj4k You dont need OS or? This is if you dont want to OC but you could get a little better CPU if you want and if you want to overclock the budget would reach around £400.

Thanks for the help!

I forgot to mention, I already have the OS, so that's fine. And I'm not looking to overclock, either.

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2Rjjw This is the best CPU in price range which is basicly an i7 without integrated GPU and works the same way and a CPU cooler. With that you could play even ultra and the CPU would last long because of HT. You can set the turbo of 3.7GHz to run at all 4 cores with the mainboard. If you want it cheaper the other suggestion works too.
