HI,i,am new in building computers.last time i bought an all in one PC and it had nothing.i was not able to play any great games,now i,am planning on building a PC.But i don't know what components i need to get. All i selected is just a CPU(AMD FX 8-core black edition-£134)
Please suggest me the components needed to build a PC with this CPU. I want to build a gaming PC which will play all great games like watch dogs,sleeping dogs,Lords of shadow,Battlefield 4 and ETC. My budget is around £500.And also tell me where to build it,because i wont be able to build it.So tell me a place where they will assemble my selected parts and give it to me as a new gaming PC. I hope i can build a pc with £500.Because there are PC's at £400 which are better than the PS4!.

This is nice but i want amd fx 8 core 8350 as processor.Because i want to play upcoming games like, watch dogs,witcher 3 wild hunt,Battlefield 4 and etc.So,can you please make it 8350 and make other things compatible?.and whn i checked pcpartpicker.com it said that 'Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Zalman Z5 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.' Can you change it please.Because iam vry new in the parts of the computer and i dont know what to choose.And can i give these parts to my nearest service centre,so that they will assemble and give me all the parts. Thank You in advance.:pt1cable:

I had to cut down the graphics card a bit but there it is. It would be best if you learned to put the parts together yourself. I would say that just about any repair shop would put it together for you... But don't think it's going to be cheap.
