Hello there, I've never built a PC by myself before and have always had premades bought for me that I really don't like. I'm an avid gamer and for the past four years I have been using an Acer 6935G laptop.
Now I'd like to build an Matx gaming pc, so it'll be easy to take to university with me.
Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Games I'm looking to play at this resolution: World of Warcraft and Battlefield 3
I'd just like any feedback whatsoever on this build. My budget is somewhere around 1060 British pounds (or 1710 US dollars). I'd like to know if this will all fit inside the case and so forth as well. Thanks for any help received!
That 7970 GHz Edition will outperform any 670.
The motherboard you chose is a bit overpriced, the Extreme4-M is essentially the same thing.
With the PSU I listed, you can add another card anytime without having to upgrade on wattage.
I also gave a better SSD performance.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Wait... if you're in Singapore, then why are you giving your budget in pounds? o_o
The H60 isn't worth it imo, and don't worry about heat. The stock cooler would actually suffice if you're not gonna OC, but I suggested the Hyper 212 EVO for an even better cooling since stock kinda sucks and your CPU+Mobo is OC ready so you can do that anytime too.
I took into consideration your needed portability. The Vulcan is smaller and lighter.
Though admittedly, the Fractal has better features. I won't stop you if you want to get it.
+1 on the 7970, or even a 7950 if your budget doesn't allow it. I don't know why you are using Newegg, I believe they only post to places in America. Prices will probably be alot different in Singapore. I've been there, and Jesus Christ did my allergies to mosquitoes get a beating.
