Hi guiys. I'm new to PC builds, but i am looking to save a bit of cash by doing it myself, as well as increasing my understanding of building PCs to allow me to upgrade mine if i ever get the need to, and building my own seems like the best way to go. Just wondering if i could have some opinions on the below build for a decent spec gaming PC below £600, and whether there is anything that you would change to make it cheaper without damaging performance dramatically, or if there is anything else that i need to include to finalise this build. Do not need moniter/mouse/keyboard.

Processor - AMD FX-6300 Black Edition 6 Core 3.5/4.1GHz (£80.99)

Motherboard – Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 (£53.95)

Memory – WD 1TB 3.5inch Internal Hard Drive (£43.99)

Graphics Card – MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Gaming 4GB DDR5 Twin Frozer IV FAN PCI-E (£234.98)

RAM – Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL9 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit Black (£64.99)

Power Supply – XFX ATX 550 Power Supply (£44.98)

Disc Drive – Samsung 24x Retail SATA DVD Writer (£13.00)

Case – Zalman Z11 Plus Midi Tower Case (£47.98)

Total - £584.86

All prices are Amazon prices, as using an Amazon Locker is handy for me.

Thanks!!

That seems like a great build for the price dude, GTX 770 is a goat graphics card (as of 2014) lol.

Make sure you have an OS as well!
