Hi, new to the forum and as dictated by my new years resolutions I should become more active in some online communities. Hopefully Toms Hardware will provide me a good home. Anyways...
Case: Corsair Carbide 400R
Motherboard: ASRock Extreme 4
RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Two Module Kit
Hard Drive: Western Digital 1TB Green
SSD: Samsung 840 Series 250GB
To Be Purchased
GPU: Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7870 OC (Roughly £180)
CPU: i5 3570k (Roughly £160)
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (Roughly £25)
My build will be used for gaming and software development (mainly Android, web applications with Eclipse, Photoshop and some Flash game development).
Might be helpful to say that this is my first venture into building a PC and I am from the UK. Also the sites I use for buying components include Overclockers, Scan, Dabs, Ebuyer and Amazon.
The To Be Purchased will occur around the end of the month.
So this leads me to a few questions. In my To Be Purchased section, have I missed out in any opportunities to upgrade for around the same price give or take £20 to £30?
With my motherboard, ram and cooler will I be able to buy an extra two modules and have it fit? The ram looks quite high.
Can anyone recommend a good PSU that would go with my build? With the peak budget of around £60.
Any other comments on my build please feel free to let me know.
