Hi all,

Thinking about building a new gaming system for less than £800. This is what I got so far, please give me your thoughts and suggestions. (All parts from amazon.co.uk).

CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K - £163.94
MoBo: Asus Z87-Plus - £112.90
GPU: Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 £197.74
Memory: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB - £62.09
PSU: Corsair Builder Series CXM 600W Modular 80 Plus - £52.27
Storage: 2x 1TB WD Caviar Blue - £79 (for both)
Case: Antec P100 - £69.40
Optical: Pioneer BDR-208DBK Blu-ray burner £65.63

Total: £802.97

Goal: to be able to play at 60fps on highest settings at 1080p

Thanks :)

    Do you think I need a custom CPU fan? or do you think the stock is sufficient? I don't plan to overclock. And if you got any alternatives that could lower costs please advise.

    Appreciate the help! :D

    If you don't plan to overclock then there is no point in getting an aftermarket CPU cooler. Also, if you wont overclock save some money and get the i5-4670 (non-k version). This CPU is not overclockable.

    No problem!

    Thanks for the reply.

    Just checked out the pricing for the non-k CPU, and its £1 more than the K version! :lol:

    What do you think of the GPU? Do you know of any AMD alternatives that could deliver the same punch but at a cheaper price?

    Awhh that's a bummer.

    The 760 is a great choice but I have found the R9 280 which is better than the 760 when overclocked, at a cheaper price.
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/GIGABYTE-AMD-280-Graphics-Card/dp/B00IYD0HYO/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1401018863&sr=8-6&keywords=amd+radeon+r9+280
    I don't know much about overclocking so you'll have do that yourself though.
  6. The R9 280 is great when you overlcock like justcallmetom13 said.
  7. What about the 770?

    Looking at some of the comparisons online, it seems to beat the R9 280 and it's difference in price is only around £50.

    The 770 is great! If money isn't a problem you could go with it.
