Hi I am putting together the final pieces for a new gaming machine, mainly for use with Battlefield 3, with a budget of £1000.

I have decided on the following parts but am struggling to choose a good PSU and Memory and would be grateful for any suggestions.

ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 (£109.99)
Intel i5-3570k at stock speed and with stock fan (£175.99)
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 1084MHz 2GB PCI-Express 3.0 HDMI SC Signature (£429.99)
Samsung 830 128gb SSD (£96.99)

So far around £800 budgeted so I am looking in the price range of £200 for both items.

Memory wise I am looking for either 16 or 8gb at 1600Mhz.

Missing a case or you already have it?

Hi, thanks for the reply - yes I already have a case, monitor, windows 7 etc. Just ripping the guts out of my existing machine and starting a fresh
