Approximate Purchase Date: Next Week

Budget Range: £650 after Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Watching Movies and also to get through Uni

Are you buying a monitor: Yes but not through this Budget.

Parts to Upgrade: I need everything from the Case..

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: www.ebuyer.com

Location: Yorkshire

Parts Preferences: Intel

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: What would you suggest?

Your Monitor Resolution: 1024x768, 1280x1024 my computer monitor is old so i haven't a clue, probably one of these..

Additional Comments: I would like quite a fancy case E.g. the Coolermaster Storm with a window.... I would need it to be quiet, some LED Lights and liquid cooling... I hope to Play Guild Wars 2 on Max settings and push out high FPS!

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My computer is probably over 4 years old.. I play WoW atm on all the lowest settings and only get 15fps.. my computer can't even download GW2 and i'd want my new computer to get me through Uni.. So just over the budget can be reasonable if worth it!

Thanks!

£650, huh...

I would not be recommending entire build, but I'll definitely recommend buying some of these (for the starters):

Case - Cooler Master HAF XM.
PSU - Corsair HX 650/750/850 (depends on your power consumption plans), Antec "Earth Watts" 650/750 or Antec "High Current Game" 850.
Motherboard - AsRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 (or ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z, if you can afford it).
Video Card - Gigabyte HD 6850/MSi HD 6970/MSi HD 7870, or MSi GTX 660Ti "Power Edition".
Processor - Intel Sandy Bridge i5 2500K (i7 2600K, if you can afford it).
Processor Cooler - Noctua NH-D14.

First off you need more money for everything you asked, but below is a good shot with your budget. the Case is a place holder if you don't like it, find one you like.

notes: liquid cooling is not quiet, flashy cases usually aren't quiet, and performance Graphics cards generally aren't quite (the newer ones like GTX 600 series and the the HD 78/7900 series are a lot more quiet than the predecessors. but you need more money for a even the low end HD 7850.

this will get you very high/ultra at your stated resolution and up to 1600x900 and high at 1080p if buy and descent monitor later.

Thanks for that :p  I could probably go up to £700 if it will really help keep what i want and last a long time... For instance increasing my budget, will improve the graphics card..

Also what is your take on AMD vs Intel? Does it really matter that much?

Intel is faster, AMD is cheaper. that being said the AMD chips will game just fine for the most part.
