  1. Seems a good build but cant say its perfect I recommend you to get gskill ram iam using thier ripjaws x series and the corsair power supply is good but not the best the best one is seasonic
  2. yeah i am a little limited on budget. But i really want to make sure that once the broadwell processors are out then i dont have to spend a lot on updating.
  3. What is your budget ? and are you planning on overclocking ?
  4. Its around 600-650ish dollars and yes i am planning on OCing
  5. Do you really need a Intel or is AMD fine ?

    Don't worry about broadwell, Skylake is out next year and cannonlake the year after that. Any i5-4xxx will last you at least 2-3 years and probably more :)
  7. i could use an AMD processor.
    but i prefer intel i5
  8. Iam using amd fx 8320 Superb one and my frind uses fx 6300 and combing it with 4 gb ram and gtx 750 he can play watchdogs at high settings :D

    I'm assuming that's at 30fps, not 60...

    If you're set on intel you should look into the I5-3570k -- lots of people overclocking to 4.4ghz with that monster. It's famous! Check threads on this site for overclocking reviews.

    Like the poster above you should read up on AMD. Intel prices are premium. You can get an 8 core AMD processor and overclock to 4.5ghz easily enough for around £120

    You dont have an SSD - these are pretty much crucial in this day and age. If you really dont have the budget. Buy a 64GB SSD just for the operating system and store all your media on the 1TB!

    remember to buy an aftermarket cooler for overclocking

    remember to buy a Case - unless you have a few cardboard boxes lying around the house :)


    best of luck
