Looking For A Price Drop?

Hi all!

I have recently enquired into building my own pc.
I have found pretty much all of my parts.
But I am still not satisfied with the price, just wondering if the Tom's Hardware community can help me out?

Here are the specs:

Cpu - AMD FX6300 Black Edition 6 Core (3.5/4.1GHz, 8MB Level 3 Cache, 6MB Level 2 Cache, Socket AM3+, 95W, Retail Boxed)

Graphics - Asus GeForce GTX 650 Ti Nvidia Graphics Card (1GB GDDR5, HDMI, VGA, 2x Dual-link DVI-D, PCI Express 3.0, OpenGL 4.3, GPU Tweak, DIGI+ VRM with Super Alloy Power Technology)

Motherboard - ASRock 970DE3/U3S3 Motherboard (Socket AM3+, AMD 770, DDR3, S-ATA 600, ATX)

Case - Aerocool Syclone II Screwless Gaming Case with Blue LED Fan - Black/Blue

Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATAIII 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive OEM

Psu - Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Unit

Ram - Corsair (CML8GX3M1A1600C10B) Vengeance Low Profile 8GB DDR3 1600 Mhz CL10 Performance Desktop Memory Module Blue

Sound Card - Dynamode PCI 6 Channel Soundcard

Please no cheaper alternatives, just a price drop on these items.

  1. im suggesting better alternatives even if it costs more or less. i never suggest junk

    -remove the sound card. its not needed
    -id sugest a asus m5a99x r2.0 board over the asrock. no more crap components

    -get this ram instead. single modules are slow

    -get this case instead. dont get junk

    -much better psu. costs more but is more reliable

    -better video card

    -hard drive. its cheaper but is the same thing inside

  2. another thing id suggest getting is a coolermaster hyper 212 evo for overclocking. you will need it given fx doesnt perform that great
  3. Not going to overclock the cpu just yet.
    The motherboard is way over my budget at £92
    The Sapphire is £158 way over my budget plus i want physx because i do blender and the rendering is a nightmare, with the much quicker particle effects.
    Good choice on the psu
    I will follow your advice on the ram
    the hard drive's are identical, and i'm not interested in the seagate software
    I'm keeping my case
    I shall scrap the sound card

    Thanks very much!
  4. A bargain isn't what you pay it's what you get.
  5. would have been nice to know right off the bat what you were paying for listed items, your actual budget and what your monitor size/res was and if you own an operating system and what it specifically was.
  6. -given you are in the uk get this board

    -ram

    -id suggest a gtx 660 if you are going to get work done. the 650ti is pretty bad for the price

    -there is no software on OEM drives. your brand selection doesnt make much sense in that perspective

    -lowest price for psu
