Hi,
I'm going to be building a computer before I go away to University in the Autumn.
I have a £500 / £600 budget and I came up with this:

MD FX-8150 Eight Core Processor - 3.60GHz CPU £141.00 http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005UBNLFK/ref=asc_df_B005UB...

ASUS AM3+ SABERTOOTH 990FX Motherboard £116.45

Corsair Vengeance Performance 8GB RAM £37.63 http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006EWUOL8/ref=asc_df_B006EW...

Heatsink Akasa Venom £16.07  http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005IJS3RU/ref=asc_df_B005IJ...

Sapphire HD Graphics £101.98 http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00761YFGQ/ref=asc_df_B00761...

HDD Seagate 1TB £62.37  
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-ST1000DL002-Drive-Seria...

CiT Vantage Type-R Gaming Case £31.90 http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007934S90/ref=asc_df_B00793...

DVD RW £15.99

Scythe Fan Controller £29.00

CiT 700W PSU £33.59

I think this is all compatible, however criticism is wanted for this build,
glancing over this build I'm having second thoughts about the case and the Heatsink.
Suggestions?


Thanks

This would be a far better gaming rig and all parts were taken from EBuyer UK.
