Could anyone help me with some advice please? Tags: New Build Systems Last response: December 24, 2011 2:25 PM in Systems Share Dazzla December 24, 2011 2:04:27 PM Hi all. I'm looking to build my first computer so i can partake in some hardcore gaming. I'm looking for a little advice on what to buy. I'll follow the how to ask sticky and go from there. Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as possible. Budget Range: I'm looking at £400-£450. I could maybe stretch a little if needed. System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and video editing. I figure if it can handle them anything else should be easy. Parts Not Required: Mouse, Keyboard, Monitor, PSU, RAM, HDD, OS, CPU Preferred Website(s) for Parts:No preference Country: U.K. Parts Preferences: Intel i5 2500k. Overclocking: Yes SLI or Crossfire: I need help with this Monitor Resolution: Best available Basically i need help with compatibility and parts comparison. I've already decided on an i5 2500k. What i need to go with that is advice on whether or not to get 2 hd 6870's and crossfire them or spend the same money (about £300) on a single card. Next i have the predicament of which motherboard (z68) will fit 2 6870's if needed and what case this will all fit into with 2 massive cards. Stuff like PSU, HDD, optical drives, OS etc i have covered. Thank you in advance.
