    This is a very solid build that will do everything you want it to no problem.
  2. I like tiny voices's build because you won't be able to get both a good GPU and the i5-3570K at that budget. You may also consider the HD 7950 now that they come with free games: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/3gb-xfx-radeon-hd-7950-double-d-5000mhz-gddr5-gpu-800mhz-dvi-dvi-hdmi-mdp

  3. Wow! thanks for that build tiny voice, that is actually the GPU i wanted, but couldnt fit :D, any idea what the fps would be on the listed games?
  4. Max settings in pretty much any games at 1080p.
