Hey, This is my first post.
I have a OK buisness orientated computer at the moment but it is a little sluggish when playing games and rendering. I have been looking at some builds and have been wondering if this is any good. I have never tried self builds but i can learn and i have done basic repairs on systems before. I already have a good hard drive, a good keyboard and a good monitor and mouse. All i need are the parts below. I am aiming to spend between 500£-600£.



CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£173.99 @ Overclockers.co.uk)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£109.99 @ Amazon UK)
Memory: Corsair XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory (£44.68 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB Video Card (£171.07 @ Scan.co.uk)
Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GTS (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case (£86.99 @ Novatech)
Power Supply: Corsair 600W ATX12V Power Supply (£52.36 @ Ebuyer)
Total: £639.08
(Prices include shipping and discounts when available.)
Thanks
Chuck

I am personally not a fan of the Level 10, the Corsair Carbide 500R would be a far better pick.

Also the Radeon 7850 will give you better GPU performance than a 560TI will and it uses 1/2 the power.

Always been more of a nivida man myself but if it wil improve performance, I go ahead with it

Anything else i need to change or is that a solid build?
Thanks
