Don't bump the thread so much, you make people less likely to help you, its 7AM in the US east coast, and still 4am on the west. I have to head out for work now, but I'll be back in a few hours, if someone hasn't put a build together by then, I will.

CPU- i5-3450 (not overclockable- substitute with i5-3570K if desire overclocking) £139.38

Mobo- Asrock Z77 Pro 4 £94.52

RAM- Corsair 2x4GB £36.96

Video Card-Sapphire 7970 OC £359.75

Power- Corsair TX650M- £77.58

Hard Drive- Seagate 1TB £59.51

Case- Xclio Nighthawk £37.42


I didn't include an optical drive in the build, since really its hard to screw that up. Pick any old DVD-RW drive. The 7970 is currently the strongest gaming video card on the market, second only 2 the insanely rare and stupid expensive GTX 690 (and 2 7970s crossfired would cost about the same and eat it for lunch)
