Hi,
I'm looking to build a computer with a budget of around £1500-£2000
I want to play a lot of games on there such as BF3 CoD WoW Crysis etc all on ultra graphics, and I was hoping someone could give me some feedback on the build I have selected and pick out some improvements and guide me in the right direction.

TOTAL OF - £1335 Approx. Not including Postage etc


I took most of these components from a different site suggestions this sort of build, I am unsure of the 850w power, I was thinking it might be a bit too much but I dont really know much about computers so I couldnt say so myself.

I changed up the 1tb seagate HDD to a 2tb and thats about it excpet for the Case change as well, cant remember what the other site suggested.
So yeah that is my build I am planning on making, don't know much about PCs as i've already said so I just wanted to know if I could go any better around about this budget and if all these components will 'run' together nicely.

Also you might notice that this build is a little short of £1500, that is because that extra £500 which would bring me up to nearly £2000 is for accessories such as a new monitor, keyboard, mouse + mat.



Thanks for your time :)

What monitor(s) would you playing on? Because I have a 23" and a Radeon 7950 with 3GB of VRAM and it's never used more that 1GB of RAM. So if your playing on one monitor, or two that are under 23", you'll be fine with the 2GB version of the GTX 670 and you can save some money that way. But other then that everything looks good.

I was looking at a Samsung 23" HD 1920x1080 something I cant remember specifically so yeah I will go down to a 2gb thanks :)

Also maybe consider a 7970, has 3Gb of VRAM and has the same (if not higher) performance as a 670. Similar prices too.
