Hey guys, I'm currently building a gaming PC with a budget of around £700, this is what i have so far:
http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/3gLky
Was looking for some comments on my build, perhaps some advice on whether or not the parts are worth the money, suggestions of better alternatives to some components, general improvements etc... or maybe an area where I can save some money.

I will be overclocking the CPU and using the GTX 760 for ultra settings on high end games. One of the main concerns for me is the motherboard, I've seen quite a few people having issues with MSI boards on TomsHardware, anybody had any bad experiences with these boards?

Any help is very much appreciated

Ryan

Gigabyte/asrock are usually better for oc. You can also save a bit with cheaper ram

It's a pretty rock solid setup, the motherboard won't be great for overclocking, but it will be good enough.

thank you for the fast reply, what motherboard would you suggest to improve it? and what makes a motherboard better for overclocking? i have to admit that i dont know much about them and only chose this one because i saw it in other builds...

Good quality capacitors and a great power phase design makes a good overclocking capable motherboard, I would suggest you to get something like this for overclocking if you have the money for it: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-z87e...
