I need a help on building a first new core i7 computer.

It will be my own first bulit computer and it will be core i7 and my budget is about under 800 pound.

I really need a help, so can you help?

Please pick parts from www.aria.co.uk

It will be not gaming computer but future-proof (more upgradable in future).
Maybe 50 pound graphic card and 3 gb or lower of RAM.

  1. Is this a complete build or will you plan on using bits and pieces of an older system.

    If its a completely new build its going to be tight for £800, the CPU and mobo will cost 450-500 alone. Im not saying it cant be done, especially if you are willing to concede on a nice graphics card and 6gb ram, but knowing what parts you have already would be a great help.
  2. Shop around, see if you get better prices at www.overclockers.co.uk, www.ebuyer.com, www.scan.co.uk. Maybe you can get price-matching too.

    Since you're not gaming, something like this HD 4670 (50GBP) should be enough:

    Your budget is not huge, you don' t game, you don't need multiple video cards, and i7 requires a very expensive gaming motherboard and expensive DDR3. I'd recommend you stick with something designed for non-gamers instead. Try something like this:

    GA-Ep45-UD3R 105 GBP
    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Motherboards/Socket+775+%28Intel%29/Gigabyte+GA-EP45-UD3R+P45%2FICH10R+Socket+775+Motherboard+?productId=33936

    Q9550 210 GBP

    Corsair DDR2-800 4GB 40 GBP
    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Memory/DDR2/DDR2+800+%28PC6400%29/Corsair+4GB+PC2-6400+C5+XMS2+%282x2GB%29+?productId=27910

    Corsair 550VX 58 GBP
    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplies/500w+%2B/Corsair+550W+VX+Series+PSU+?productId=29383

    Antec 300 46 GBP
    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Cases/MIDI+Tower/Antec+Three+Hundred+Cool+and+Quiet++Gaming+Case+?productId=31087

    WD6400AAKS 48 GBP
    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Hard+Drives/Serial+ATA/640Gb+Western+Digital+WD6400AAKS+SATA+?productId=33249

    These prices do not include VAT. With VAT and shipping it's about 650 GBP to 700 GBP so far. You still need a burner and a copy of Vista 64 or XP 32.
  3. Speed is not matter, I got used to my old eMachine 3220 which has Intel celeron 2.8GHZ non 775 socket and 512Mb ram and xp :( and AsRock p4i65G

    And I just want full build excluding OS system CD.

    Ofc, im gamer but i won't spend all of my money but i will buy very high end graphic in future that's reason i buy i7 now and buy high end graphic card future.
  4. Al right, then go for that i7 build, but change the PSu to PC Power & Cooling 750W or to Corsair 850W. I recommended the Corsair 550W thinking you'll have a HD 4670 there. If you're going to replace it with a HD 4870 X2 or GTX 295, or whatever high-end card will come out in summer, then you will need more than 550W.
