First build, need advice on places to buy.


My friend sent me here, he said you guys knew what's up. I'm new to gaming on the PC and I've come into this with a £600 budget. After researching which parts to buy and having discussions with my friends I've come to this list:

I'd be happy to buy that but my friend says you guys might be able to direct me to certain websites to get better deals.

  1. I'm not from the UK but I frequently hear that Ebuyer and are good places to buy PC parts from.

    For that kind of budget try this:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3450 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor (£143.99 @
    Motherboard: Asus P8H77-V ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£83.99 @ Dabs)
    Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£42.00 @ CCL Computers)
    Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£68.99 @
    Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card (£191.99 @
    Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case (£38.38 @

    (Prices include shipping and discounts when available.)

    For such a small budget I don't think the unlocked CPU is necessary and the RAM with the tall heat sinks really aren't that great. The video card I included is way better than that 560TI is.
