My Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/9UhB Possible Monitor Candidates (If you have a better choice, it'd have to be under £140) Spoiler 1: http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/part/lg-monitor-e2360vpn 2: http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/part/asus-monitor-vh242h 3: http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/part/asus-monitor-ve247h And I'd like to say hello to everyone, I'm a long time lurker but finally made an account to post More about : comment build g-unit1111 June 11, 2012 4:53:20 PM That's a pretty solid build - the only thing I would change is that Cooler Master makes pretty horrible PSUs. Go with something like a Corsair TX750 or a Seasonic 620W instead. I'd also switch out your primary HD - having a 5900RPM HD for a primary will be a major bottleneck. theGeezus June 11, 2012 4:58:11 PM Is there anything cheap as the one I'm using now, however better performance? And any Monitor Suggestions except the ones I've posted?

And any Monitor Suggestions except the ones I've posted? You're probably looking at the Seasonic S12 II 620W: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/620w-psu-seasonic-bronze... It's a little bit more but it's a far better offering than anything from Cooler Master. All of those monitor choices are good - you can't go wrong with any of them. I personally like Samsung, Acer, and Asus the best. theGeezus June 11, 2012 5:51:23 PM Oh I was looking at the wrong PSU, That's not too much more it's nice. Thanks, would that be a good enough build to play some new games and future games on max settings? Does OCZ do any good PSUs? Just saw this: Spoilerhttp://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-psu-ocz-technology-... g-unit1111 June 11, 2012 6:07:07 PM theGeezus said:Oh I was looking at the wrong PSU, That's not too much more it's nice.

Just saw this: Spoilerhttp://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-psu-ocz-technology-... They're decent - Corsair and Seasonic will still be far better choices. Maybe try this XFX one as it's made by Seasonic: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-psu-xfx-pro-series-...

It's manufactured by Seasonic and has 46amps at the rail. You can push your build with a 500w psu. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
