  1. It's a good build.
  2. http://www.dabs.com/basket

    This is my Components are they worth the trouble and money?
  3. The basket is empty. If the list of your parts is that from first post then is a good build.
  4. I still think a sandybridge would make it a better machine, can't you stick one of it?
  5. If I change to sandy bridge which parts should I swap out and how much better would this be?

    TOTAL : £748.27
    And don't forget to your build is missing the HDD another 65 pounds.
    This is much better , and most the processor and video card.
  7. ^ I second this build though I would change the psu to either corsair, seasonic or antec. OCZ power supplies are not quite reliable based on reviews and user experience
  8. Ahhh I did have a HDD Selected just forgot to add it I chose the Western Digital that is similar to the Seagate but I have trust in seagate Harddrives so I will swap that out I will look up the build suggested above thanks guys.
  9. One more thing. If you guys had the same amount I have £750 Maximum for a build what would you buy? Just so I can see other peoples more experienced minds at work on this. I am very grateful for all the help by the way =)
  10. Buy Intel is better , quicker, low power consumtion. Ill buy the build what i made for you.
  11. Okay Intel it is then I will shop around for the parts recommend buying these all at similar times to ensure I get the return in 30 days deal?
  12. The pc you built me with the intel core parts If I made the mobo better would I be able to add another 560Ti in the future? =S
  13. I would change the PSU to Antec Earthwatts 750W. It is $15 cheaper and more reliable.
  14. New Build Intel System

    Just wondering if there are any changes to parts I could make for a small increase or decrease in price to optimize this machine e.g drop the mother board to a lower grade and upgrade my Graphics card also will the motherboard selected support dual 560ti in the future if I need to upgrade?

    Oh and can this machine Hold Dual 6870s?

    I know that price says that the Intel core is better but is it £100 better? This is where I get confused. I hope Someone helps soon thanks for this. I know I have been picky but I just wanna get this right since £800 to me is a LOT of money and will take me around 2 months to save.
  15. The Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 can hold two 6870.
