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

ASUS AM3+ SABERTOOTH 990FX Motherboard £116.45

Corsair Vengeance Performance 8GB RAM £37.63

Heatsink Akasa Venom £16.07

Sapphire HD Graphics £101.98

HDD Seagate 1TB £62.37

CiT Vantage Type-R Gaming Case £31.90

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.

This would be a far better gaming rig and all parts were taken from EBuyer UK.
Simple stock/no OC build :D
