Help with 1st build Tags: Homebuilt Build Systems Last response: December 15, 2012 1:08 AM in Systems Share z6f December 14, 2012 10:54:59 PM I'm building my first ever computer soon and I would like some advice. My budget is £300 and I want to do some light gaming on it. I want to play games like Portal, Mirrors Edge, Cod4 etc. Playing modern games on medium would be a nice thing too. I currently have 3 builds but I don't know which one to purchase.

Can I get better components but get them cheaper or relatively cheap? Most importantly, will the PSU work with everything? Thanks in advance.
