Provided with links to UK sites. I want to build a general PC used for gaming. I usually play games such as Dayz (Arma 2), NS2, BF3, COD etc.

I want to keep the price range >£900. I also might record, in which i would sacrifice quality for better framerates. Hope to game on at least 60fps on normal settings general. Are there any parts i could do better with? Thank you in advance

More than £900, thats a good buget :kaola: 

I would look at a better case, the 300 is good but by spending a little extra you could get something a little better like this:

If you dont mind second hand I'm considering selling my Silverstone Raven 3 for about 70 plus shipping (I'm from the UK too, pm me if ur interested, it'll save me putting it on the forum) or there are some others in the classifieds:

I'd also look at getting a bigger HDD:

and if possible an SSD to run the OS off, the one below is 128GB, but get a 256GB if you can:

Thanks, what would you say for a graphics card? I was looking at the MSI HD 7850.
