  1. People will appreciate it if you do some homework by using the next,

    but at least give a maximum budget.
    Also let us know if overclocking is a desire/wish/interest.
    Will crossfire/sli be something to consider.
  2. Apologies. My maximum budget is £600, I have already selected a few parts but im struggling to find a reasonably priced motherboard. Im confused by the H's and the B's and the z's. Im not sure what type of motherboard I want as well. ATX or mATX. Overclocking is not a desire but id like an Intel processor. The parts selected so far

    CPU - Intel i5 4440 (£125.99 @Aria PC)
    Memory - Kingston Beast (8GB) DDR3-1600 (£53.99 @Amazon UK)
    PSU - EVGA 500W 80+ bronze (£36.99 @Amazon UK)
    Case - Corsair Carbide SPEC 03 (£45.95 @CCL Computers)
    GPU - MSI Radeon R9 270 2GB (£133.98 @CCL Computers)
    SSD - Kingston SSDNow V300 120 GB 2.5" (£45.00 @Amazon UK)
    HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200rpm (£41.23 @aria PC)
    Optical Drive - Lite-On iHAS124-04 (£11.79 @Amazon UK)
    Keyboard/Mouse - Gigabyte KM7580 Keyboard and mouse (£16.48@ Dabs)
    Total £572.38

    If you could also amend some parts so I can get the same performance for a smaller price, i Will be forever thankful
