Looking to build a gaming computer for around £500 how is this build? thanks

Is this build ok and are there any things you would change to give me more bang for buck? i come from england and so do not have access to newegg but prefer dabs or the like.

  3. Everything looks good, you might want to get a higher end 500-ish watt power supply, as that power supply will hardly use 500W.

    If you wanted pure gaming, go with an i3 2120, and a better graphics card, like a 7870. The money saved from going back to the i3 will allow you that upgrade. The i3 won't bottleneck the graphics card, and games are more reliant on graphics cards than the actual processor, so I'd recommend you put more of your money towards a nicer graphics card.
