  1. Your going to need dedicated graphics to play games, I recommend a 6850 and could you provide some links
  2. And whats the price range? Your not going to need that i5 2500k my friend if you dont give more info if your going to overclock or not
  3. You forgot a Video Card. Try the Radeon 7850.
  4. thanks for the reply guys...i dont think im going to overclock anymore...i have a budget of €800 and i want to build a computer that i will be able to add too easily and have no problems playing games like black ops etc and also be able to play 1080p video

  6. If you are not going to overclock you do not need a unlocked processor s get this http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/8223654/art/intel/core-i5-2400-3-1-ghz-6-mb.html .

    Also since you not overclocking you will not need a motherboard that supports it, so save 75euros and get this http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/11913916/art/asus/p8h77-v-le-1155-socket-h7.html .

    Since you need a video card to play game get this http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/11861471/art/sapphire-technology/radeon-hd-7850-oc-2-gb-gd.html
