Well after thinking over a few weeks, with some opinions from helpful toms hardware users ive stteled on the build below:



but what i wanna know is is it good enough? fps's. such as black ops 2,mw3, crysis 2 and such. ill also be playing metro 2033 and guildwars 2, along with minecraft and runescape. i aim to play these on full hd fullscreen on high to max settings. will this do.

The GTX 650 is not a good card for gaming. Everything else on this build looks good. For a mid range video card the Radeon 7770 GHz edition and Radeon 7850 are far better options around the same price range. The faster RAM won't really benefit you - better would be to drop that to 8GB 1600MHz then you can upgrade the GPU to the 7850.

what do people think now

That looks better but I'd still spend way less on the RAM and more on the video card - games that is where it really benefits. Everything else doesn't really.

Get an i5 and buy a better gfx card, seriously an i7+7770?
You can get an i5 and with the price difference a 7850 or 660 gtx/7870.
Also save some £, you'll only need 8GB 1600mhz.
Also that psu is no good.

Thanks For The feedback howeverid like to modify the list a bit.
CPU:im staying with the intel cor i7 3770k because i need the hyperthreading compatibility for use with rendering, web development,programming and such.
cpu cooler: a bit too pricey, ill probably upgrade to it though
motherboard: thats the one i chose i think.
memory:20+ tabs of google chrome most running java applets + a few more java programs+minecraft server+runescape+Magix movie editor+videopad+audacity+a bunch of others+ bf3 or whatever all at the same time, i doubt 8gb 1600mhz will be big/fast enough, i
storage:ill get that one and an ssd
videocard: 7950? are in your senses my man? i may be able to get away with the 7850 though.
case:id rather stay with the one ive chosen
psu: ill use the one you said i should
optical drive: okay ill use that
monitor> 23" is puny, im actually thinking about getting a bigger monitor than 27 inch but i cant find one :( 

so yeh, ill go through with some of your suggestions, thanks for the help and for the trouble of finding those links.

Wow, I'm not even sure an SR-2 with 96GB of RAM and dual Xeons could run all of that at the same time on multiple displays. :heink:

The 7870 GHz edition would probably be a better 1/2 way point between the 7850 and the 7950.

I'm not a fan of that case brand by any means. Go with something from Cooler Master, Antec, Corsair, or Fractal Design - far better cases. Also - Arctic Cooling fans are crap, that fan included is no better than the stock fan.

i like the case, however can you reccomend a cpu cooler/heatsink? no more than 25£ though.
