Hi there guys

I am going to be upgrading to a new gaming PC in christmas so I have been browsing around, and have found a PC I am interested in, however what I would like to know is, is it worth the money I am paying, or if I should change any parts to it?

Here it is:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Loki SDS963
Operating System: Microsoft® Windows 8 Standard 64-bit
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX
RAM: 8GB Corsair 1600mhz Vengeance (2x4GB)
Hard Drive: 500GB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB
Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio
Case: Zalman Z11 Plus
PSU: 500W Xigmatek

This custom build is available for £630.

What are people thinking to this? Should I change anything? Am I being ripped off?

Xigmatek makes some pretty dismal power supplies, and the 650Ti is not a very strong card.

Tezz, I highly recommend you look at building a computer yourself. Just ask for the parts for christmas, and then you have the fun of putting it together. (It's as easy as LEGOS. Watch a youtube video [I like the ones by Newegg or NCIX] all the way through, then go back and watch it again, pausing to do each step.)

Not only is it easy, you end up with a WAY better computer than you would with a pre-built one.

The problem is, I dont know enough about computers to be able to select parts, I would probably be able to build it with watching a video. But I just have no idea about the individual parts, i.e. What graphics card is better than the other that is where I am stuck
