NZXT Vulcan Micro ATX Black Case - No Psu £54.95 Asus P8H61-M LE H61 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio mATX Motherboard £52.81 Intel Core i7 2600 3.4GHz Socket 1155 L3 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor £231.20 CORSAIR 4GB 1333MHz CL9 DDR3 £30 Antec TruePower New 650W Modular PSU £65.99 Samsung F3 HD103SJ 1TB internal Hard Drive SATAII 32MB Cache 7200RPM – OEM £42 Sapphire HD 6950 2GB Dual DVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Graphics Card £220.59 LG IPS225V LCD LED 21.5" HDMI Monitor £99.99 Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Socket 775, 1156, 1155, 1366 Heatpipe CPU Cooler £15.98 Please can you back up why other things are better or why these are bad. Thanks More about : building rig 800 pounds metal orient December 22, 2011 1:26:50 PM It would help if you could fill out this: Approximate Purchase Date: (e.g.: this week (the closer the better)) Budget Range: (e.g.: 600-800) Before / After Rebates System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies) Parts Not Required: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using** Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing) Country: (e.g.: India) we need to know where these parts are being assembled Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to use an AMD CPU & Biostar mobo with a 24" LCD and full tower case) Overclocking: Yes / No / Maybe SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200) Additional Comments: (e.g.: Need to have a window and lots of bling, I would like a quiet PC). As it is i made a more what i'd consider a better build: intel i5 2500k £162 https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Intel+Core+i5-2500... Really no point in getting the 2600 as you won 't feel the benefits. Gigabyte Z68APD3 £82 https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Motherboards... You don't seem to bothered by bells and whistles so this solid board will suit you well. 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 £36 https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Memory/DDR3/... Good solid RAM ASUS GTX560 Ti 1GB £159 https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Graphics+Car... Out of the 6950 and the 560 Ti i'd say the 560Ti is the better option as it is cheaper and provides comparatively performance, especially on 1 screen. 500GB HDD £70 https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Hard+Drives/... Cheapest HDD i could find, with prices in stupid numbers atm i wouldn't spend more than it, where you found that Samsung drive i don't know. XFX Core 750W £68 https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/750W+XFX+Core+Edit... A nice solid PSU built by seasonic Bitfenix Shinobi £47 https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Cases/MIDI+T... Decent case for a great price. Dell U2312HM £186 https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/23%22+Dell+UltraSh... Some may call this mad overkill on a screen and i can see where they're coming from, BUT it's an IPS screen which will make your games and movies really look nicer, and is easier on the eyes than a TN panel. Now i know you have selected an IPS screen as well but it's response time isn't as good as the Dell, however having looked at the review of it here: http://www.digitalversus.com/lcd-monitor/lg-flatron-ips... I'm more impressed, so you could save money here and get the LG, but my inclination would be to stay with the Dell. Your choice. Review for the Dell: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2312hm.htm No heatsink as you don't want to OC and you can get away with the stock. This does put you £20 over with P+P and VAT: £818.22 But apart from the screen i really can't see where meaningful cuts can be made. It only is 2.5% over budget so not exactly terrible. metal orient December 22, 2011 1:44:15 PM Rokkman said: That Antec blocked shape thing should not be placed anywhere near a PC.
