I've been looking into putting together a PC (which is something I've never done before). I would like to build a decent gaming PC, which doesn't cost too much and has upgrade potential (not asking for much, eh?)
Whilst starting to research different parts, I came across this excellent website and forum. I'm planning on buying bits and pieces from different on-line stores to keep costs low, including buying second hand.
Before I buy any components, could you have a look at my propsed set-up and let me know if I've made any major errors or oversights?
MOBO :Asus P8P67 PRO Motherboard (hoping to get a second hand one from e-bay to save £££)
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k Unlocked Retail CPU 1155 Processor
Ditto what Mosox said: ditch the PSU, you're not trying to power a military class laser. 550 watts is plenty. Also, I highly recommend buying brand new MB's... it's not worth buying a used/refurbished one. This advice is coming from experience.
