Good £600 gaming pc? AMD FX8-8350 with gtx 770

I am building my own pc, and am looking for a professional opinion on this setup. My max budget is £600 total. I will be playing all of the newest games out there in ultra settings at 1080p 22" monitor and 1080p projector. Could you please answer this questions:


My Build:
CPU: AMD FX8-8350 (£150)
GPU: Palit gefoce gtx 770 2GB (£230)
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8GB ( 2 x 4GB ) Memory DDR3 1600 MHz (£65)
Motherboard: Asus M5A97 R2.0 AMD 970/ SB950 Motherboard DDR3 ATX Socket AM3+ (£64)
Power Supply: Alpine 600W (£15) - I know nothing about psu, do i need to invest in something more expensive??
Case: CIT DOMINATOR 6 fans (£44)

I have a hard drive from my old computer

Total = £569

I will possibly overclock it later on, for now im not going to overclock anything.

  1. That PSU is terrible, I can already tell since the brand isn't even known. Word of advice: Dont go for a PSU based on wattage, there are other variables to it that matter, such as max continuous wattage output and amount of amps on the 12V rail.

    I recommend a Corsair CX600 if you want a quality PSU for the price, Corsair is a re-known PSU maker since their best power supplies are manufactured by SeaSonic, the giants in the PSU industry.

  4. The CX600 is a cheap power supply with poor capacitors.

    I posted a nice budget build above.

    Says where?
  6. The CX Series Supplies form Corsair , built buy CWT use very poor Samxon capacitors.

    Corsair is a brand , they don't make power supplies.

    Do i need the cpu cooler? or would the one that comes with the cpu be enough?
    I would not be overclocking with standard cooler.
  10. Not overclocking you should be ok , but with the FX series CPU's an aftermarket cooler is a great idea.
