I am building a budget gaming pc and so far have put together the following list which has put me way over budget, can anyone suggest a way of making it cheaper without compromising too much? It is currently around £700 I would need it reduced to £600. I would preferably like to keep the XFX Radeon HD 7850 Graphics card, any ideas?
Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus
120mm Red Coolermaster Sickleflow Fan
200mm Cooler Master Mega Flow Red
Intel I5 3550 Ivy Bridge
Gigabyte ga-z77m-d3h LGA 1155 Socket
Corsair 8gb 1600mhz Vengence memory
XFX Radeon HD 7850 Graphics card - 2 GB - GDDR5 SDRAM
Xigmatek 600w Tauro 80 Bronze
Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
Arctic Cooling MX4 4g Thermal Compound
OCZ Vertex 3 120gb SSD
Seagate 500gb Baracuda Sata 3
Samsung 24x DVD RW
Cut out the extra fans and the thermal compound, and I'd also suggest dropping the SSD. Also get a different power supply - I'd advise against Xigmatek. You also don't need a Z77 motherboard if you're not going to overclock, and that Arctic Cooling fan is junk. It's no better than the stock fan.
Really? Why would you go with a B75 motherboard and a slow, low power CPU? That doesn't make a whole lot of sense there. Also I can't stress how crappy Xclio cases are, they're a junk manufacturer that's no better than Raidmax.
B75 = no overclocking; fine for games
cheap 4 core intel cpu; wont bottleneck
xclio cases are junk? elaborate, because unless you are throwing your case a cement walls even plastic should hold a motherboard fine.
