You don't need that WiFi Adapter as the motherboard has one. I recommended you to choose a lower grade mouse and keyboard. If you can't, reply again and I'll take a lower grade graphic card.

Reminder: You said that "Dont worry about Mouse,Monitor,keyboard,OS " and I thought you already have it. Please describe it completely next time when posting.

Im pretty sure newegg doesnt ship to other countires.


@OP:
You dont need an 850w PSU, unless you going to SLI that 680. ( even for that you wouldnt need more than 750W)
You also dont need 16Gbs of RAM, just 8 since you arent going to be editing hardcore.
Just some advice here. :D

Thanks for the advice but I have already gave him 8 GB RAM in the latest quotation. I didn't change the PSU as the price has the difference of £0.01 and he can add GPU or anything in the future and the PSU will stay for more longer.

You also may want to consider getting an Ivy Bridge processor, just a few difference in $$$.
August 13, 2012 1:07:17 PM

i hear the i5 2500k is the best gaming processor so i stick with that
August 13, 2012 1:10:22 PM

i5 2500K < i5 3550K. Ivy bridge is newer technology and will keep you a bit future proof.
August 13, 2012 1:12:55 PM

ok i take a look
August 13, 2012 1:13:33 PM

i looked at it and dose not work with my mobo so i stay with i5 2500k
August 13, 2012 1:24:47 PM

It works with a Z77 mobo, which i thought you were gonna be using, but meh. You will not be getting full speed out of your GPU as the SB chips are programmed(?) for PCIe 2.0 and the GTX6-- series use PCIe 3.0. (same with the radeon 7--- series.) It will still work with PCIe 2.0 though, but at PCIe 2.0 speeds.

Err, did you saw my post? If you can't afford more £45.86 then downgrade your mouse and keyboard or downgrade your GPU.
August 13, 2012 1:36:20 PM

Advice: never include peripherals into the mix as it will confuse people. (except for monitor)
Ex. You have $1500 to spend on everything. Determine how much the mouse and keyboard will cost then subtract. 1500 - (cost of periperals) then round off. ;)

ok i what about this mother board
http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/motherboa...

and what you think i can overclock the i5 2500k on it what can i get it 2
August 13, 2012 1:39:16 PM

na i got £2000 to spend on the computer now

Dude, can you clarify everything first? You can take an i5 2500K to 5GHz if you have a great cooler.

I think that it does not have a big difference so may not change it for saving a few pounds. XD
Nw333 said:

Yea it can but I wouldn't recommended overclock more than 4.5GHz, more overclock = more system failure / unstable and may get a total broken of the CPU, if you are unlucky. :( 
August 13, 2012 1:56:52 PM

Ivy bridge will save you from upgrading in about a year or so.. Or whenever SB becmes obsolete. Also, yes, the risk gets higher, thats why I never OCed lol.

Dave, if you thought that the few pounds are nothing so get the Ivy and yes, the risk is high but I've also saw someone overclocked 3570k to 5GHz with the Corsair H100 before but Dave, you no need to buy the H80 and use the Hyper 212 EVO can get you to x20 to x22 in the CPU Ratio (Multiplier) in BIOS. It's fast still.
August 13, 2012 2:03:16 PM

Id definitely get an H100, if you are going to be OCing that much, but, again, the 212 will take you to speeds like 4.5Ghz. (never tried tho.)

Nw333 said:

I recommend up to 4156Mhz (x22.0 CPU Ratio in BIOS) to avoid any risks from happening.
August 13, 2012 2:10:29 PM

cool i change the h80 to 212
August 13, 2012 2:10:53 PM

Havent had any experience in OCing, so Ill leave that to you. :D

going to get the ram you said but the msi graphic card is a lot better and going to get 2 of the msi if not to my standers but everone says it a good card
August 13, 2012 2:30:16 PM

You also won't need that WiFi Adapter as I said.

Edit: Get a CM Storm Series PC Case also, it's cool for gaming.

No, I meant that get 8 GB of RAM and you have more money to get another GPU. Did you misunderstood? I also don't think so your Programs and OS takes up to 250GB and the Samsung 256GB is cheap because the speed of read and write is slow, if you really need 256GB then take it; if no then take the Force GT, the reviews are saying perfectly and I owned the 90GB one (it is not sold in Novatech, don't know why) it's running very fast! Just need 12 sec in the Starting Windows, my HDD takes 2 minute!!!

If 120GB is sufficient then get the Force GT 120GB, or spend a few more pounds to get the Force GT 240GB. Force 3 LOSER!!! Force GT FTW +++++!!! Force GT has invisible powers! They doesn't describe their product properly!!!!!
