I need a new computer and I need it to be able to game very well and record with a recording software(Fraps/DXTORY) and be able to render in Sony Vegas. I have made a build already but I need some advice on if it will sufficiently meet my needs and if I could get some other components instead of others. My budget is £550.

CPU - FX 6300 £112
Motherboard - MSI 970A-G46 £60
GPU -Sapphire HD 7770 Vapor-X GHZ Edition OC £120
Ram - 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Jet Black £30.90
HDD - 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm £41.98
Case and PSU - Cooler Master Elite 430 Black Computer Chassis with 500W PSU £60
OS - Microsoft Windows 8 64bit English 1pk DSP OEI DVD £75.70
CD Drive - LG GH24NS90 24x DVD±R £13.80

Total = £545(with Delivery and Peripherals and extra fan)

Cheaper is better for me and I have made three builds that are around my budget but I don't know if these could be changed so they are better quality.

I like your final build, just swap out the case with this.

and the PSU with this.

It puts you a tad over budget, but I say this for two reasons.
First, the 965 is a 125 watt processor.
Secondly, if you want to really increase performance, you should overclock both your GPU and CPU. That hogs a lot of power, and I think it would be a good idea to increase you PSU.

Additionally, you get a corsair PSU, which are very good quality. :D

Thanks for the help, all in total it's £560 which isn't that much over and it just means I get a better performing PC and hopefully a better lifespan being the PSU made by Corsair. Now let's just hope the build goes right. :bounce:  :D

You should stick with the Cooler Master. Xclio cases are cheaply put together. The cooler Master is much better quality.
