    Total cost of mine from scan = £368 Total cost of yours from overclockers = £376, and dont forget mine has a better GPU, case and mobo...

    Also what make is your PSU? and do you already have DDR3 ram ?
  2. For RAM I'd go with Corsair Vengeance or Gskill RipjawsX

    also here is my psu

  4. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Mousemonkey
  5. Well, you will need ddr3. You can't use any other ram.
