  1. You need a graphic card to display anything.
  2. no its for gaming srry i forgot to mention quickly change it now
  3. oh yes i know what you mean now im not sure what graphics card to get or what else will be better with this build im going to be building it in october which is why im asking to make sure i have all the corners smoothened off have everything working to its max potential

    any parts missing from build shown are parts im not sure of what to get
  4. What is your budget for the gpu?

    What monitor size you looking for?
    Is the £200 budget includes the gpu, monitor and keyboard?
  7. not the gpu but 200 pounds for monitor keyboard... i can wait for a while if i need any extra money but i can easily get a keyboard and mouse for free so in the 200 pound sense i will be prioritizing the monitor
    i do not know what size i would like preferably something that is reasonable in size i dont want something tiny but i dont need something massive for the moment about 23 inches (not sure something around that measurement) i would like to get a more landscape based monitor for playing mmorpg games but like i said i dont need something massive

    Well, you can definitely get a monitor with £200 or 200 euros at 23 or 24 inches.

    Here a selection:

    This monitor I have bought for a second pc and the screen looks pretty good if you don't mind the cheap look of the product. IPS screen has great colours and less colour shift. I would recommend this if you don't mind the look of your monitor but only the screen.

    On another note, make sure you get a gpu either before getting a monitor or at the same time since you need one to get anything to display on the monitor,
  9. thanks for your advice im looking for something thats going to last me a couple of years until i cant play games at all for a gpu i was thinking of a radeon r9 270x/280x/290x do you think this will work well with my other parts and if not what brand... would you be looking at if you were making this build.
  10. Any gpu will be fine.
    R9 270X is ok for ultra settings at 1080p.
    With your power supply i would only go as high as R9 270X.
    For any higher gpu upgrades, you need a better psu from Tier 1 and 2 of this list:

  11. thankyou for your advice are there any other tips or tricks that you can give to me as this is my first time build your help is greatly appreciated
    e.g. what i should put on my ssd and my hdd or whether i should crossfire with the gpu in the future or get new gpu...
  12. You should put the OS onto the SSD. You put videos, documents and pictures on the HDD since you only have 120GB on the SSD.
    You can install programs on either the SSD or HDD. For games, put any that you open often that you want to load faster. The rest goes to the HDD.
    You might have to micromanage depends on how much space you use but I personally can manage a 128GB SSD + 500GB HDD.

    Good guide on installing Windows on the SSD:

    With crossfire, you have to take in account of your power supply and if your motherboard supports it. Personally I like to have a single gpu where possible as not all games support crossfire so it only runs on one gpu.
    Since you need a new psu in the future, 650W is fine for a single gpu. 850W is better for crossfire. 1000W is for higher end card crossfire like R9 290 CF.
    Ultimately its down to you if you want to do crossfire since it is your money.


    For drivers, before you install your OS, you want to get the latest drivers installed onto a USB. The CD drivers are normally outdated.
    You would most likely need Audio driver,chipset driver, lan driver and USB drivers. The LAN drivers is probably the most important than the others. This will allow you to connect to the Internet via an Ethernet and you can download the drivers once installed.

    You also need gpu drivers as well.
