Sorry, this is a first time build and i will be using this for mostly everyday computing with my games (AvP and Orange Box). I want to stick to the "£500 deal but if anyone can suggest better parts cheaper please help me.
The parts look ok for the budget. Though, we don't actually know where you're looking for parts from so it's hard to recommend alternatives.
I would recommend trying to get a 4GB DDR3 kit in there though, but we'd need to know where to look for you.
I was looking on Dabs and Ebay. Unless you could recommend elsewhere?
