  1. Case - NZXT H440 Black/WHite (IMO)
    PSU - Corsair RM650 but you could get away with a Corsair CS650M if you don't intend on SLI'ing
    Cooler - All you need is a CM Hyper 212 EVO with A Noctua NF-F12 for a great quiet cooler
    It's a great build but I would personally go with Intel
    The only bottlenecks could be the brand of SSD you get. I would advise a Samsung 840EVO 120GB

    What is the general budget?
  2. Case: Mid tower the one you like the best with good air flow.
    PSU: Antec, XFX, Seasonic or Corsair TX, HX, AX series (all other Corsair series have cheap capacitors, avoid). 550-650w
    Cooler: Hyper 212 is the popular one.

    The build is pretty good. They're aren't really any bottlenecks. Make sure the RAM is a kit (IE pairs of sticks).

    CASE : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-caph410b1

    the PSU i have given is more than what you need but its good to have some more headroom its one of the best PSU available in the market its cheap and a TIER 1 PSU with 10 years of warranty.
  4. Guys i need it to be a lot cheaper than that. my budget is 600 and i'm already at 635. i forgot to say the i need cheaper alternatives. so a cheaper motherboard that would be just as good, a cheap case, a cheap PSU (a tier 2?) the cooler that prit suggested is the one i will go for. i also need a cheaper alternative for the 770!!!

    Thats the same mobo i'm getting! - so i need one for £60?
    and the 280x is exactly what i was thinking.
    that powersupply is stilla bit much - cant you think of one for £50?
    also what is the difference between he 8320 and 8350? is £17 worth the drop??
  8. Best answer
    While the other guys are providing parts, I want to caution you over the "cheaper" alternative. Do not cheap out on a motherboard or PSU. Those two parts are the most important components in a PC. Buying a quality motherboard can be the difference in RAM stability, CPU stability and any PCIe card. Power supplies are very important as well just because if you buy a crappy PSU, it could damage other components.

    If the budget is too tight, sacrifice a luxury component to meet the desired expense. You can save money by dropping the 8350 and buying a 8320 in it's place. You won't be able to tell the difference off the bat between the two processors. If you can the 8320 can easily be overclocked to 8350 speeds. The SSD is a luxury component. Buy only if you have room.
  9. you will not find a 990fx board for 60 pound .
    the r9 280x is the best alternative for gtx 770 at lower cost.
    http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-100b10600kr this psu is the best what i can give u under 50 pound.
    Between 8320 and 8350 the difference is the core speed so a good OC can meet the difference.

    case - ?
    PSU - ?
    is there anything else i need?
    is this a good build?
    do i need any other fans or any part?

    i already have a: monitor, keyboard, mouse, wireless card and blu ray drive. so i only need what above.
    i have never overclocked but i want to overclock the rig i make!
  11. The cheapest quality motherboard I was ever able to find is http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-ga970aud3p.

    It has an 8+2 power phase design which is good for overclocking. The down side is you can forget SLI with this motherboard. The x4 speed on the second PCIe slot is the killer. If you get this motherboard, make sure you get the 1.5V kits. And check height measurements, make sure the RAM kit you buy will fit under that cooler.

    remember i want to overclock. - i am going to switch from the gtx 770 to the 760 as i can afford the 770 and if i use that money to keep the 8350 and get a better psu then i can upgrade the GPU later on in 2 years time.

    what PSU do you guys suggest would be good for £60 then. and a cheap case is still needed.
    also apart from the Evo 212 do i need any other fan?
  13. Sorry, I was browsing movies to watch.

    I would drop the 8350 for the 8320. You can ask many of the experts here, the 8350 isn't worth it considering the 8320 can do the same thing for less. If you can keep the 770 that cool. The 280x is cheaper and trades blows with the 770 depending on the game. You will be able to tell the difference between the 760 and a 770.

    For a PSU: Antec, XFX, Seasonic or Corsair TX, HX or AX. You are safe with those brands. EVGA also has good PSU. You could get away with a 500 watt PSU, but I've always enjoyed a little head room. 550+ wattage. If you drop the 8350, that will open up room for an Antec HCG psu.

    Most cases usually have a fan or two for flow. You can add those later.
