I am on a bit of a budget, basicaly looking to spend around £450-£500 on a new PC. All i want to do is be able to play SWTOR etc on ok settings.
I will be building the PC over the next couple of months when i can get money for the components.

Mobo : Asrock EXTREME3 970 (Socket AM3+) DDR3 PCI-Express ATX Motherboard

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 960T Black Edition 95W Edition 3.00GHz (Socket AM3) Processor

Mem: 8GB G.Skill RipJawsX (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Kit - F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

GPU: XFX ATI Radeon HD 6870 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

Case: ARIANET Avenger Midi Tower Gaming Chassis

PSU: 450W Coolermaster GX 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply

The case has built in cooling but i will purchase another fan just to be sure.

I am not to bothered about overclocking, i may at some point but it is not too important.

HDD is not included as i have not decided on what i want to get yet.

All components will be purchased from

How does it look? and i know it is not the best but remember, it is budget!

llooks good, except the power supply.
I'd suggest a Corsair CX 500W, Seasonic S12II 520W, or Antec Neo Eco 500W, whatever is least expensive
