Okay guys a member on this forum suggested this build (thank you by the way alot of help :D ) I was just wondering if everything was compatible and the if the cpu comes with a stock heatsink cause in the picture it says no fan :p  i have 640 pound budget and i can't afford to screw up that's why im asking :)  .

this is the build the user suggested for me but i would like to substitute the gpu for this http://www.scan.co.uk/products/3gb-xfx-radeon-hd-7950-d... is it compatible with that motherboard and would it fit in the case :) ?



thanks alot guys,. :)

Hmm, I've never heard of a 3470 not coming with a heatsink. It should come with one. But you may have to update your bios for that Ivy Bridge processor, though I'm not sure if B75 is made for it or not.

And It'd be better to get the Gigabyte GPU as they're GPU's stay nice and cold.

If you are going to buy anthing from scan then check their "Today Only" page (extreme right of the top menu).

for example if you are willing to order today you could go for something bit better for about the same price

3GB XFX Radeon HD 7950 Double D, 5000MHz GDDR5, GPU 800MHz, DVI/DVI/HDMI/mDP+Free Games
£214.79

Bundle:
Intel Core i5 3570K,1155, Ivy Bridge, Quad Core, 3.4GHz, 5 GT/s DMI, 650MHz GPU, 6MB Smart Cache, 34x Ratio, 77W, Retail
+ Asus P8Z77-V LX, Intel Z77, S 1155, DDR3, SATA III - 6Gb/s, SATA RAID, PCIe 3.0 (x16), DVI-D/ HDMI/ D-Sub, ATX, USB 3.0
+ 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Jet Black Low Profile, PC3-12800 (1600), Non-ECC, CAS 9-9-9-24, XMP, 1.5V
£269.99

Then on their psu page :

500W Corsair Builder Series CX CP-9020047-UK, 80 PLUS Bronze, SLI/CrossFire, EPS 12V, Quiet Fan, ATX, PSU
£40.20

Subtotal : (approx figures) £525 + £40 HDD (see today only page) + £15 DVD thingy = £580
you would then need to compromise on the case a bit but there are some not bad cases for £30
+ £10 postage = total approx £620

then if you are still worried they do a £15 instalation insurance

(don't go crazy on the overclocking until you have an aftermarket cooler)
(check that the psu has enough for whatever the 7950 requires)

I meant to type "(check that the psu has enough connectors for whatever the 7950 requires)" - sorry
and this mobo may in theory allow crossfiring but is not best suited
- check with someone who knows someting about crossfiring - I know squat!
