Feedback and suggestions much appreciated. budget is about £700 More about : early idea base build mojorisin23 July 6, 2012 4:14:54 PM Dont get the CP power supply. NEVER EVER GET IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. they are terrible! go with Intel for the CPU. they are better in every way. that liquid cooler is the free one. its crap. go with a fan. Hyper EVo 212 or thermaltake FRIo are better and easier to maintain. i would try and get "branded" components. so where it says "major brand..." i would instead select a brand (theres always a choice for a few quid more). these changes may cost you 50 more, but you'll have a much much better and more importantly, reliable, machine... Laney2w July 7, 2012 4:29:01 PM thanks for replying, this is an early look at what to get what CPU do you suggest? i5? also there is no option for diffrent brand for the 6850, i may go with PC specialist as i get a better idea of what i need. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer mojorisin23 July 9, 2012 1:59:44 PM i5-3570k is best (replacing the i5-2500k - which is still good and probably a better choice if youre on a budget). Also, get the memory in a 2x4gb config. try another build on there. get a branded PSU as well, no more than 650W if youre not planning on Xfire. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
