More about build
  1. me i go for GTX 670 Instead of the hd 7970 if your going to be gaming
    and i go for a Corsair Professional Series AX850 80PLUS Gold® Power Supply
    instead of the TX850w Bronze but its up to you other then that is a good system
  2. ^Agreed on the 670. BUUT, not on the PSU. Since getting a gold efficiency PSU will significantly cost more, it wil make the build cost more. PSUs wont affect performance in any way, so 80+ bronze should be enough. Anyways, if this is for gaming, you wouldnt need 16GBs of RAM. :)

    give me your budget, location, what parts you dont need, are you going to crossfire/SLI? are you going to overclock?

    i can do better
  5. My budget is no more than £1500inc Vat, has to be build as I can't do it my self.

    Not sure if I will crossfire/SLI not looked in to it.

    I need all parts

    I been looking at Novatech for parts, they also said they would build it for me

    get this graphics card though

    http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/nvidiageforcegraphicscards/nvidiagtx670keplerseries/msin670gtxpe2gd5oc.html

    i dont understand why you would like them to build it for you. you can do it yourself and its pretty easy. its just plugging things in and screwing this into that.
  7. you will have to get the psu from overclockers.uk as the one listed is the wrong model
  8. Ok why choose the GTX 670 over AMD HD 7970 ?

    I dont know were to start in building own pc

    GTX Just better for gaming in my point of view
  10. Go with the GTX 670. Also get rid of the H80, and get a hyper 212 evo.

    with the last 12.7 catalyst driver, the 7970 beats the 670 in most games (except BF3). the reason id get the 670 is that it runs a bit cooler (subjective to the aftermarket heatsink) and it uses a bit less power (not enough to see too large of a difference in your power bill)
  12. another reason is that nvidia tends to have better support with their drivers but amd is good too
  13. I had to put back paying for it, so i will have a little extra cash, so is it worth going for a GTX 680 then, if it in my price range ?
  14. ok i look through novatech site and see what they do
  15. nope. get a 670. i recommend the msi 670 power edition. its the only one with voltage control. the cooler is pretty good too
  16. the 670s perform so close to a 680 its unreal
  17. Ok I have spent time reading forums and web sites for information and I think I have my build down, this should be it and hopely placing the order end of Sep.

    So final comments or feedback would be great, and again thank you for all the help.

  18. First thing I'd scrap is that PSU. Never trust no-name PSUs to a gaming computer.
    Second thing I'd scrap is the SSD. It is not so reliable and Sandforce drives may seem fast, but in reality, they aren't. Get a Crucial M4 instead.
