Hi there,

So basically this is going to be the first time that i build a custom pc myself and i need help with what parts i should get. I have a budget of £800 - £1000 and would like you guys to tell me all the parts i should get. i play games like BF3, COD and dayz and would like to get the best performance out of my pc with no lag or frame rate issues. I would also like a tri screen setup at some point so not sure if that will affect the parts that i get.

Many thanks to who ever can help me

Kingston 8GB, DDR3, 1866MHz, CL9, Kit Of 2, Predator Series Sparkle GeForce GTX660 Ti, 2GB, GDDR5
Western Digital 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA3 Caviar Black
Samsung SH-224BB, DVD+/-RW, 24x, SATA, Black
881 euro


If you not planning on oveclocking then:
Enermax Staray, Black, Blue Fan
Seasonic SS-600ET, 600W, 80+ Bronze, Bulk
Asrock H77 Pro4-M
Intel Core i5-3570 (3.4GHz, 6MB Cache, LGA1155)
Kingston 8GB, DDR3, 1333MHz, CL9, Kit Of 2, HyperX Blu Sparkle GeForce GTX660 Ti, 2GB, GDDR5

Although i'm not sure why would you need three monitors, so these build will not give you this option. For that you may need to change videocard for example Sapphire Radeon HD7850, 1GB, GDDR5, Dual DVI — gives you two monitors: minus 100 euro in price.

Lol, yes. It hardly changes anything, even becomes cheaper, so the 881 EUR = 719.96 GBP

In pure processing power, yes. But there are many issues with SLI. One is microstuddering that occurs in games with higher FPS. This can be very bothersome during play. Another reason is that some games aren't optimized/support SLI so only 1 GPU is used. Just go with a 670 from EVGA. The 670 is only 5% slower than a 680, and much cheaper. As for EVGA, best manufacturer when it comes to NVIDIA cards.

Just go with Sonicers i5 build but substitute that 7970 with a 670 FTW+.
