Hi guys, I really need as much help as you can give me as this is my first build, so I'll give you as much info as I can.
Approximate Purchase Date: This month hopefully.
Budget Range: Around £700
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming and some coursework.
Are you buying a monitor: No, I'm going to connect it to my Panasonic plasma. I've heard connecting a PC to a plasma is a bad idea because of burn in, but I do believe there is less chance of this on modern plasmas.
Parts to buy: Everything except CPU.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes, windows 7 home premium I'd say.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon or anywhere that's cheaper.
Location: Northern Ireland.
Overclocking: I might in the future.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe. I've heard some people have had problems with micro stuttering though..
My Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Why Am I Upgrading: I'm fed up with console gaming.
Here's a few ideas I have...
CPU: i5 3570k - I've already purchased this of amazon when It was going for a great price
MOBO: Couple of ideas, asrock extreme 4, asus sabertooth Z77 or P8Z77-V
GPU: I might put off buying this until next payday and get something like a gtx 680.
