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 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-SABERTOOTH-990FX-ASUS-AM3/...

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 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-DRW-24B5ST-Internal-SATA-D...

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?
