Approximate Purchase Date: 27th of October.

Budget Range: Roughly 600 EU / 820 USD / 5500 SEK.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Browsing the Internet, Movies, etc. Nothing too serious other than Gaming I guess.

Parts Not Required: Monitor, Keyboard, OS.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: www.komplett.se

Country of Origin: Sweden

Parts Preferences: Don't much care about the lable, just the best in the price range, atleast 4 cores in the processor.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1440 x 900

Additional Comments: I'm not too fussed on going AMD, I would just like something that could run games such as WoW (on Ultra Settings) and CSS, L4D2.

Thanks in advance.

Hej på dig :D 

I'm afraid the 2500K is a bit too expensive for a 600€ budget. Också, http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/261222-13-build-adv...



Hej ;) 

Okay ;( Oh well I'll follow the guides in that thread and post a new question and try and delete this one (if I can?)

EDIT: Actually I'll just edit it.

That's missing Case, PSU. That budget is kinda iffy for a i5 build, this is the best I could find. Even the 6850 is going to be overkill at 720p-ish resolutions, so that's easy. You may not need the Gigabyte board, feel free to get a cheapo H61 mobo. I picked that one for upgradeability.

Make note of the resolution he's running.

yeah, but he most likely would want to upgrade from that res, but he would otherwise be fine with the 6850

Finneous you're amazing man, the budget was my guideline, but you just made it easy for me.

@morgoth780: I can afford to get that card, and I think I will as I won't be staying with this res forever and I wouldn't want to have to spend unnecessarily in the future.

I've chosen this case: http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=602546

Is it decent?

Still got to look at PSUs.

Seems like a nice case. It's too bad there's only one fan pre-installed, buying more will cost you some.

It only has two 17A rails, that's kind of on the low side. That site has none of my favourite PSUs really.
October 13, 2011 7:58:20 PM

This website might have better PSUs, www.webhallen.com

Also a Swedish website, could you recommend me something?
October 13, 2011 8:11:58 PM

Sweet! Now the only thing thats stopping me is lack of cash! Pay-day on the 27th ;)
