I have a budget of £600 and have already decided on what Keyboard, Mouse and Headset I'm getting, so I only need opinions on this build and a suggestion on a monitor. The Case is on a separate link because PCPartPicker do not have the case I want registered.

Am I right in saying you only changed the video card and that everything else in the build is fine? And could you give me reasoning as to why you did so? Could you also suggest a monitor? Thanks!

Could you tell me how it's a better build, please? Also, you've left £45 for a monitor? Plus the case is £50.

first i5 4440 is a better performer than fx 6300 (http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-4440-vs-AMD-FX-63...)
second gtx 760 is wayy better than r7 260x(http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R7-260X-vs-GeForce-GTX-7...)

so better components mean you can play games at higher settings at higher resolutions for more years to come



But would the build I linked still play those games - as that is what I asked.

Also, you're still forgetting about the case, monitor and windows 8.

you need a monitor in this budget with that case...its difficult..well go with this monitor
http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/acer-monitor-h236hlbmjd

second dont buy windows. get a pirated version from piratesbay or isohunt...use it for some time. when you save some money go for original copy of windows.
third, change your case...its f** expensive...choose from one of these

''gtx 760 is better than r9 270x ''

That's why I went with a r7 260x and an fx6300 - to save.

But if the intel and Nvidia route is better and then I'll opt for the 200R I'll do that.

Thanks.

mantle is not supported by every game secondly, nvidia just introduced new drivers 337.50 which should boost the performance even more..if he can stretch his budget id say go for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
