Looking for budget-PC Build to play World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Diablo 3 and League of Legends.

Hey there, I'm currently looking to find a good build for my first custom-built PC. I would like it to be able to run games like World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Diablo 3 and League of Legends smoothly. My budget is around £360. I already have a mouse and a keyboard. (I also prefer a flashy-looking but still practical case, if possible). Help is very appreciated!

    What settings would you like to play all those games on? Do you also have an OS or no?

  6. Since there is now competition;

    FX 8150 Eight Core Processor - 3.60GHz £99.99 Amazon uk
    Asrock 970 PRO3 R2.0 £50.47 Amazon uk
    G-Skill 4GB Ripjaws X DDR3 1600 Dual Kit (2x2GB) £28.20 Amazon uk
    SAPPHIRE AMD R7 260X 2GB GDDR5 £85.00 Amazon uk
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£35.94 @ Aria PC) - same, good price.
    Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer (£10.84 @ Dabs) - Same, also good buy.
    BitFenix Comrade ATX Mid Tower Case (£28.04 @ Aria PC) - Same
    Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£35.74 @ Amazon UK) - Same

    Total £377.22

    Now, that will be over budget, but not by a "huge" amount, Defiantly worth the extra for what you pay, trust me.
  7. Well this isn't competition i was just updating my first build really ^^

    EDIT : Are you sure that 430w is enough for the build above ?

    Estimated wattage is 334w , mine is 198w so the cx430 is enough for mine but are you sure for yours ?

    Andrei's build looks like the best for the budget and the 260x will run all those games you listed on high settings.
  9. Well, Andrei65 just changed a few things in my parts list, and I took some from his.

    Yes, 430W is enough.
  10. I did not change anything besides the gpu because it wasn't on the gpu list , i made the exact same build to know if 430w is enough because the 260x is quite hungry xD
    Anyway ok , i didn't know it was enough ;)
