Hey, im 14 and plan to build my first gaming PC in a few weeks time - below are my planned specs

CPU - i5 6600K (which I plan to overclock)
CPU COOLER - Corsair H55
MBD - Asus Z170-A
RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws (2x4GB) 3000
CASE - Corsair 100r
GPU - 2x RX 480 in Crossfire
SSD - Samsung 840 Evo 240GB
HDD - 1TB WD Hard Drive

What PSU should I buy for under £80 to fit this build? Thanks :)

    But you'd be much better off building a single-GPU solution computer with something like a GTX 1070 for the same amount of money.
  2. 700 watts and up

    Good quality and plenty of power.
    On a side note I would pass on the Xfire 480's and buy a single GTX 1070.
  4. I vote for GTX 1070 as well
  5. On a side note I would pass on the Xfire 480's and buy a single GTX 1070

    I plan to be only playing 1080p anyway, is it even worth buying a 1070 or even crossfire rx 480's? Shall I just buy something like a single rx 480 or 1060 instead?

    get GTX 1070 , even for full hd is awsome , if you want >60fps in ALL games everything maxed out.

    A single RX 480 or 1060 will max out any game at 1080p no problem. If you have a the money (and buy a 144hz monitor) then you may want to consider the GTX 1070 if you want to get maximum framerates, but you don't really need it.

    No need for Crossfire RX 480s at 1080p at all.
