These are the parts I've got picked out at the moment. I am a novice builder with just one low end gaming pc under my belt and I really need an upgrade, so there's a chance I've done something very silly. I'm mainly here for advice on any possible areas where I might increase performance for not much more money/save money where it isn't necessarily detrimental to what I'm looking for.
This all adds up to, I believe, around the £750 mark. Which is my budget, give or take £100.
I only have a vague understand of hardware, but as far as I'm aware this should be sufficient to comfortably play almost any game in max detail. Of course there's going to be room for improvement with this budget and I'm not expecting max fps on everything. I mainly play things like Skyrim, AC, Fallout, Battlefield, GTA, etc.
I shortened the links using bit.ly because it looks neater.
no need for a mobo that you can OC if you are buying a cpu that doesnt....a 800watt is an overkill except if you're gonna crossfirex....or else a 550-650 should be enough...a get a better gpu...for 1080 a 7870 at least...do some more research on what you want
a brill build mate, have a look at www.overclockers.co.uk they have some good deals on! picked my i7 3770k for 60quid off. other than that a nice build mate,will be sure to play battlefield with you haha(:
ps, do you play dayZ?
Yeah, I think I will go for MSI purely based on the fact they have the best warranty !
Thanks for the overclockers recommendation, I'll keep an eye on it. I am biased towards Novatech though because they have OUTSTANDING customer service
I don't play dayZ... YET. Everyone is screaming at me to play DayZ so I am going to once I buy this beauty. Feel free to add me on steam, deadgoon0 (I'm not playing any online games at the moment other than black ops 2 occasionally which my brother paid for.
