I'm a complete noob when it comes to building PCs, I have basic knowledge of parts (mostly cpu's and video cards) and I'm making the first step towards building my own, which is deciding on the parts I want.
I have a budget of around £650 (not including OS and equipment), and will be using the PC for gaming at high graphical settings (I'd like to run BF4 on at least high and 40fps, and most other new releases on high/ultra) and video editing which will include 3D rendering.
Currently, from looking online at forums, youtube videos and build guides, I'm thinking about the following parts:
All I need to know atm is, is this a decent build? Will all of the parts work well together? Will I be able to achieve high/ultra graphic settings on new releases? Also, what else to I need to get for the build? (CPU Cooler etc.)
it is a revision of your build, with better price/performance parts selection
better mobo + ram for OC
add cpu cooler 212 evo
swap GPU to Radeon 270X (perform slightly below GTX 760). apparently, GTX 760 cost very high in UK : £50+ more
in US, the gap is merely $20. so it is not wise to pick 760
swap PSU to 550W. enough for 1 GPU
you can spend the rest budget into 128GB SSD
or change the ram into 2x 8GB for faster rendering
or 8 cores 8320
I changed the GPU for the GTX 770 and added a cpu cooler. Also you need a case or? http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2U7Fs You could go for a better CPU if you want - added the FX 8350.
Thanks dude...will the 770 and 8350 make a decent difference? I could use the extra £100 or so to put towards a new monitor or keyboard, but if it's worth it I don't mind. Also, that Zalman Z11 case will do the trick. If I get these parts, will it be ready to put together? I reiterate, I really don't know much about PC building atm.
The GPU and CPU are quite better. I am from Europe and dont know if the parts will be already put together from pcpartpicker, somebody that know have to answer that.
I may not order them from part picker, I'll probably order the exact parts separately to see if I can save money. What I wanted to ask was, if I get these parts exactly, will I have everything I need to set it all up?
