Looking for some help creating a new gaming PC on a budget betwenn £500 and £600
As I am new to PC gaming I don't have any major knowledge on what components are compatible with each other and what will give me the best performance possible for the my budget.

Any help with a setup betwenn £500 and £600 would be greatly appreciated and this excludes the operating system, Thanks :)

If I was you I would take AMD's first build and drop to an i5-3470, drop the evo, upgrade the 7850. 7870, 660ti, etc.

The first build is very similar to what I was looking for, would changing the GPU to an EVGA 2GB 650ti be a better option than the card you suggested as I was looking at it previously and it is a very similar price. Thanks for the replies.

The new build from AMD looks great to me. The 7870 is more powerful than a 650 ti.

650ti is worst than 7850...

for nvidia card, go at least gtx 660 or gtx 660 ti if you can afford it

gt 650 is only 128 bit card...

Also the 7850 is a good card if you are on a tight budget. I've got one in my system and it runs quite nicely.
