Good build although I would get a 270 and some G.Skill Ripjaws X series RAM.

That is a DELL OEM copy of windows. Get a legit copy.

GPU link is dead. So is disk drive link

You have no PSU listed either/

The gtx760 is better than the 270.

GPU boss is not a good benchmark to use as they use a SINGLE benchmark for each category. Generally I do not use them. Plus they count hings like noise, power, etc. in their rankings, and these make no difference in performance.

In reality, the gtx760 is a bit better than the 270x and there fore a decent bit better than the 270.

It is a better all around OS and is faster for most games but whatever.

maybe I haven't given it enough of a chance but, I feel like I can't navigate to things like My Computer and stuff like that on it. Thanks for the link, and is the build ok then, will it fit together all right, as far as you know? And the RAM you recommended is 80 quid here :L. Is there any cheaper decent RAM you could recommend?

No, SATA cables will come with the motherboard. You should be good to go.

What PSU did you get?

Hey, I was just looking at the dimensions of the card I am getting to check that it can fit inside the case, and I am little bit worried because on the amazon page it says:40 x 25 x 6 cm http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Nvidia-TF-PCI-E-Graphics/dp...

And the case is 38.5 x 21 x 37.4 cm

There's an addon that will remove the start screen and make it function just as well as Windows 7.

Also, you can set it up to boot directly to the desktop UI
