Hi, Im new to the whole computer making scene and could really use some help. I need to make a solid gaming rig with decent enough browsing capabilities from scratch as well as get a keyboard, mouse and monitor, all for under 700 euro (Have a bit extra if needed). I need to buy it off of, http://www.komplett.ie
I wont be overclocking. Thanks hopefully in advance

wow thanks mate, i could also use http://www.amazon.co.uk if it has better prices?


I've never really found the prices on Amazon to be more competitive than anyone else but use what you want.

I just ordered a pc in about the same price range yesterday, this is what it looks like:

CPU: Intel i5 3470
Graphics Card: Sapphire HD7870
Mobo: AsRock H77m
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Case: Antec 300 (not the 300 2 because the 300 is smaller and cheaper and you dont need a huge case)
Memory: Corsair vengeance 2x4GB
Optical drive: Cheap LG drive, don't know which one exactly but it was 18 euros

So pretty similar to what g-unit1111 came up with :)

Guys he needs a monitor and keyboard and mouse included in that budget lol i don't think it's possible to build a decent gaming rig with all that included on your budget

haha yeah, i was just going to cutback from i5 to i3 to pay for the monitor and just use an old mouse and keyboard instead until i can save up a bit more money

OK try this:

Case: Antec 300 V2 - €66.95
PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 - €74.95
Motherboard: Asrock H77 Pro 4 / MVP ATX - €89.95
CPU: 3.2GHz Intel Core i5-3470 - €184.95
RAM: Corsair Vengeance - 8 GB -1600 MHz - PC3-12800 DDR3 - 240 pin - 1.5V -CL9 - Kit - €44.95
HD: 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue 7200 RPM - €62.95
Optical: Asus 24X DVD Burner - €28.75
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 - €189.95

Total €743.40

Would I need to get a cpu cooler on top of all that or should the case fans be enough?

I will answer for him :lol:  no your good the cpu cannot be overclocked so no need for aftermarket cpu cooler. ;)  The cpu comes with a stock cooler.
