Honestly I could build a i5 build with a 670 for the full 800 pounds keeping some parts since my HDD isnt half bad.

But you guys know your stuff so please post what I should get. I will be getting the 800 pounds in December. So if theres anything I need to wait for. Dont tell me :P Im really IMPATIENT! sorry.

But yeh. Just post What I should keep and what I should dash. And links are helpful. ONLY UK! unless you know your stuff, but I mean prices. No american Sites. Thanks :D

  1. First off what parts are you going to be reusing? You can definitely reuse your HDDs, optical drives, and operating system. I'd look at a new case, PSU, motherboard, CPU, cooler (if applicable), and GPU.
  2. My cooler is the Arctic Cooler 7 - Cheap and cheerful. But I knew I could still use the HDD's. Thats why Im not buying a prebuilt computer. But If you guys could lead me to some nice builds to get me the bang for my buck it would be great!
  3. Here's what I would recommend:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£169.37 @ Amazon UK)
    CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U9B SE2 37.9 CFM CPU Cooler (£37.98 @ Scan.co.uk)
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£104.12 @ Scan.co.uk)
    Memory: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£40.03 @ Amazon UK)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card (£299.60 @ Scan.co.uk)
    Case: Corsair 500R White ATX Mid Tower Case (£90.54 @ Scan.co.uk)
    Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W 80 PLUS Silver Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (£79.99 @ Overclockers.co.uk)
    Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer (£14.99 @ Novatech)
    Total: £836.62
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

    If you want to you could add an SSD to this build but that doesn't need to be immediate.
  4. Sorry I forgot to add I do a TON of video editing and multitasking. I would prefer 16gb. Unless you think its SERIOUSLY not needed. And my limit is bang on 800 pounds but I think i could make this work :) Do you think thats the MOST i can squeeze out of my money?

    OK that's fine - just take the RAM I added and double it. Or get G.Skill Ares for a bit less.
