Hello everyone,

I have told my friend I would build a PC for him, because I know quite a bit more than him and he is generally pretty lazy.

These are the components:

Motherboard: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00CXOMGGW/ref=asc_df_B00CXO...

GPU: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-xfx-radeon-hd-7870le...

CPU: http://www.ebuyer.com/538192-intel-core-i5-4440-3-10ghz...

PSU: http://www.dabs.com/products/corsair-600-watt-builder-s...

RAM: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(2x4gb)-corsair-ddr3-xms3-pc3-10600-(1333)-non-ecc-unbuffered-cas-9-9-9-24-150v

CASE: http://www.ebuyer.com/414620-cooler-master-k-series-k38...

HDD: http://www.amazon.co.uk/HGST-Travelstar-7K1000-HTS72101...

Optical drive: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-BC-12D2HT-Blu-ray-Combo-Dr...


Could somebody make sure that this stuff works together, or at least tell me how I can be sure?

If you have any advice on building computers, please do share! =D

Cheers in advance, Smyth

OK bro, thanks for the help, those changes have been made.

You have any other advice for me? How do I purchase windows 7 64bit home premium?

It needs to be a little cheaper now, so what components should I cut to make it more around £600
