Hi there!

I have been thinking about this for a long time and, although I don't have much experience building pcs, I think I reached something that I'm happy with. But I'm not sure about some stuff.

**CPU** | Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core
**Motherboard** | Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
**Memory** | Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
**Video Card** | Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card

Price £537.68

The pc is for gaming and for 3d modelling/rendering normally large and complex scenes (3ds max).
I have an old pc where I'm gonna put all the stuff in. This ( is the case. I also have a HHD that will do for now and this 570w PSU ( Pics of the old pc here:

I'm not thinking about overclock for now. And when that happens I will probably buy a better case and PSU.

* Any other suggestions?

If you are going to render, you should consider an i7. The hyperthreading will help there.

Ditto on the i7 suggestion.

Also, if you do intend to OC eventually, consider buying a CPU cooler like the Hyper 212 EVO. It doesn't cost that much more and it will probably fit into the case you have now.
