I need some quick advice on my first build by Christmas. I've been looking around have been stuck on comparisons and components. Mostly on other components that i can cheap out and go full out on graphics card with out overclock or bottlenecks.
Full build of desktop (exc. monitor, mouse, OS) must not be higher than £400/$650
Right now i have my eyes on:
Thanks for the reply but I did say it was a budget build… “£400/$650”. However if I can get an i3 3.3ghz (-£70) that would still be£520 and add 7770 would let me play most games in med/high also leaving me with a small upgrade path. But then problem occurs again which is finding cheap rock like parts

This is the cheapest build possible without losing much performance..get either the xfx 450w or corsair cx 430 which ever is cheapest..and if its ok for you to spend more then we can get a better motherboard..
