More about build gaming 700 800
  1. The best website for finding/creating a computer build is https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/

    You can create an account on the website and put together builds using lists of nearly every component available on the market. For example, when you select GPU, it will list all GPU's available, including their ratings, specs and even where the cheapest price available is. The website will also inform you if your components aren't compatible with each other, it really is a great way to prepare before buying all your PC parts.

    You can also go to the completed builds section of the website and view other people's finished PC builds. If you like what other people have put together, feel free to copy their build. Just go to the search bar and type in '700-800' and see what you can find. Make sure you select your country in the top right corner of the website though, you want the correct currency!

    Hope this helps
  2. For us to help you'd need to give us a budget and any more constraints

    Your most likely not to need thermal paste and also you forgot the OS and the Memory.

    It is also not really necessary for a 6 core cpu and probably better off with an Intel.

    Heres one to concider with the Intel i5

    Here's a good build to consider:

    Why do you keep recommending people old hardware? LGA1155 is a dead-end socket, H61 doesn't allow overclocking, and that CM PSU is not a good quality choice.

    Why do you keep recommending people old hardware? LGA1155 is a dead-end socket, H61 doesn't allow overclocking, and that CM PSU is not a good quality choice.


    He probably isn't gonna be overclocking tho

    Add some RAM - say 8GB and an OS - W7 or 8.1. I would'vbe thought the cooler would've come with TIM. But if you have to buy some try Arctic Silver instead. I also prefer current generation parts. I like your XFX Power Supply. The 270 will balance nicely with the FX-6300. Most people prefer Sapphire brand with Radeon GPU's. Do you plan to overclock the CPU?

  16. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=138_803&products_id=21314 The info on the Asus mobo says it should be OK.

    So build proposal is looking good. Just add RAM compatible with the mobo (see mobo website) and Windows and you're right to go.
