Hi, after a few months of internet shopping, posting on forums and using game debate I finally got my ideal system together for around £500. Please could anybody comment on it with any ideas or problems that they have found. Below are the specs.

CPU: Intel Core i5 3350p
GPU: XFX 7770 Black DD edition
RAM: 8GB Corsair 1133mhz
Mobo: Asus P8B75-V Full ATX
DVD-RW: 24x Liteon
PSU: XFX P1-450S-X29B 450W Pro series
HDD: 500GB Seagate 7200rpm
Monitor AOC E2250 Swdak 1080p DVI-I LED
Keyboard: Samsung Wireless
Case: Revoltec 66 with 2x 120mm fans

Dynamode 300mbps adapter.

The main games that I want to play are farming sim 2013 and day z. Maybe other games like The Saboteur and Mafia 2. I want to play as many games as possible at 1080p at a minimum of 30fps. A may also play dirt 3 with a xbox controller. I aren't to bothered about play on ultra but it would be nice.

Any comments about the system or just your thoughts. The whole system costs £520 and I will be building it from scratch.

Get 1600mhx RAM for starters.

Get an i3 and up the GPU to a 7850.

Get a cheaper B75 motherboard. ASRock make good ones.

For a cheap gaming build you will see only a couple of FPS difference between the i5 and the FX-8350, and you'll get the performance you want from this build.
