This is my first custom build and id like to play games like battlefield bc2 and bf3 and ac brotherhood on this on at least medium settings. Im 14 so my budget is a bit limited . My father is giving me 400 euros and its my birthday so ive racked up another 250 -300 euros so all this adds up to 650 - 700 euros but id rather not skip 650 euro ALSO Take Into Account that live in Malta so the total shippping price of all the components ive written (from the overclockers website ) ammounts to 35 gp. I also HAVE tto but from this website http://www.overclockers.co.uk



I think that this asus gtx 560ti should be good but i need opinions http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...

Also the cpu Must be a core i3 2100/2120 sandybridge unles u can find better a t the same or similar price http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP...


i found a pretty good motherboard http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB...

500 gb of hdd is enouh for me http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD...

I dont need the best of dvd roms but i need to be able to rewrite discs so i think this lg more than cuts it :http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CD...

4gbs of ram is enough too and i think these are good http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY...

My biggest problem is with the psu . I dont know exactly how much wattage i need and i cant figure out how to properly use a psu calculator. I think 620w should cut it ( http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA... )
but im sure that someone can find a better model on that website . oh and i dont need it to be modular

Ive decided that im gonna get this coolermaster haf 912 plus case from ebay ( due to shipping costs)

Now thx for reading through that very crude and unneat paragraph. SO if i buy just these parts will they actually work and fit togheter, or do i have to buy extra stuff like a cpu cooler.

P.S I have an os , keyboard , mouse and monitor

those aren't bad choices for a beginner's build. The parts should all be compatible, and reasonably well chosen. The CPU youve selected includes a CPU cooler already. the GPU is a good choice that will have a high bang-for-buck factor. The PSU should be able to handle the parts you chose exceptionally well but I'm not sure it's your best buy. All in All it looks good but I can't tell because I'm not familiar with UK pricing on parts. and BTW if you get all those you should be able to build yourself a nice working computer

Could you suggest a better psu for my build . I really like the pricing on that antec but the ocz ( http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA... )
and the coolermaster ( http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA... ) dont have good rviews on websites i found. I dont really care that much if theyre a bit noisy but if u could help me find another better psu at no more than 70 gbp that would be awsome

i would reccommend shooping around on other sites such as aria, ebuyer (my two personal favourites are those), theres also novatech, dabs, scan, etc.

I personally have always been a Corsair fan, no rhyme or reason but I have built a few computers that all use Corsair's psu and they run quietly.

The PSU should be Okay. I can't really show you a better one because I don't live in Britain and am not sure of the purchasing channels available to you.

use this to determine your PSU requirements.

Out of the ones you have posted the OCZ stealthXtreme 2 700w is the best from my quick read up. I have the stealthXtreme 1 700w and it has performed quite well.

good luck assembling your machine!
