I have recently bought a mac and wish to build a PC to play all of my old games and a few new ones e.g. SWTOR and Skyrim on, and any recommendations to improve my rig up to around £700 are fully welcome. I would prefer to use amazon or ebuyer for my parts as I am from the UK.

Asus P8H77-M LE Motherboard: www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-P8H77-M-Motherboard-Support-Expre... £78.17

Gigabyte GTX560 1GB GPU: www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GTX560-PCI-E-Graphics-Card/dp... £131.98

Samsung SH-B123L 12x Blu-Ray Reader & Lightscribe DVD Writer: www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-SH-B123L-Blu-Ray-Reader-Lights... £53.96

CiT Vantage Type-R Gaming Case: www.amazon.co.uk/CiT-Vantage-Type-R-Gaming-Reader/dp/B0... £28.98

Seasonic X-760 760 watt psu: www.amazon.co.uk/Seasonic-X-760-Watt-Power-Supply/dp/B0... £144.41

2x 4GB Crucial Value NON ECC Memory: www.amazon.co.uk/Crucial-CT2KIT51264BA1339-PC1333-Memor... £17.33 each

Currently I have not bought any of these and better prices are welcome.

I can agree with g-unit on everything but the case option. I would reccommend this case instead for improved wire management and overall awesome. I used three of these... http://www.amazon.co.uk/NZXT-SOURCE-210-ELITE-Midi-Towe...


I like NZXT don't get me wrong but on sub-$800 builds I like the HAF 912 because it has a lot of features that you just can't get for the price (like mounts for the H100, SSD mounting bracket, cable management and CPU retention) and the European version has the clear door and red LED fan.
