Hi all,

I am in desperate need for a new system as my current one is 7 or 8 years old.
I was wondering if you guys can have a look at these specs I found on I am somewhat nooby so kind of scared that I am not getting the best for my money..

Inter i5 professionally overclocked to 4.5Ghz! [£0:00]

Inter Core i5 2500k, 3.3Ghz Quad Core, 6Mb Cache [£140.15]

CPU Coolers
Corsair H60 Hydro Series - High Performance CPU Cooler [£40.77]

Motherboard Z68 & Z77!
Asus P8Z77-V LX, Inter X77 Cjipset [74.77]

Memory - DDR3
8Gb (2x4 Gb) Corsair Vengeance LP, DDR3. 1600MHz [£33.12]

Power Supply Units
650W Corsair Enthusiast Series - Modular - 80 PLUS Bronze [£66.65]

I also plan on installing more Harddrives.. is the PSU sufficient?

Really appreciate any help I can get guys..

Thanks in advance.
