Intel i5 £750 - £800 build

Hey everyone ! :) :hello:

Fairly new here....be gentle :P

I am stoked for the new elder scrolls online coming up and i've always wanted to get into pc gaming! I have been going to college learning how to put a computer toghether and Install OS like Win7, XP and Vista. I have no doubt if i have a problem i can ask my lecturer for help if something isn't running properly.

Also he said he isnt the best to ask about gaming setup/builds, he only knows if they will work toghther.

I've been looking at parts and which parts go with other parts like intel goes to an intel motherboard and atx case needs atx supported boards and some information on PSU.

I play Need for Speed sometimes BOp2, Diablo 3 another reason for getting a PC, Portal, Skyrim, Oblivion, arma 2, Dc universe and alot of older games like GTA san adres Diablo 2 and stuff.

Here's the Build
<b>CPU</b> Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K
<b>GPU</b> Asus Radeon HD 7950
<b>PSU</b> Corsair Builder Series CXM 750W Modular 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX/EPS
<b>RAM</b> 2x4gb Corsair Vengenance 1600mhz cl9
<b>Case</b> Aerocool Strike-X GT
<b>HardDrive</b>WD Caviar Green 1TB SATA III
<b>MotherBoard</b> Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard (Socket 1155, 32GB DDR3 Support, ATX, Intel Z77 Express, USB 3.0, CrossFireX Support, Dual Intelligent Processors 3)

tried to add links but didnt work :(

my budget is £750 £800 and thats around $1150 in dollars right now check on XE

If anyone can give advice on what else i should get into this PC? Let me know!

and if you can reccomend Moniters and or Keyboards and Mouses that would be awesome

Thanks in Advance :ange: :pt1cable:

    Why two HDs? Seems a bit unnecessary. I do agree that the green hard drive will slow the system - make sure it's a 7200 RPM drive.

    The original build looks really good, you can't go wrong with 3570K + 7950.

  4. Ive noticed that with stickmansam he has got a few of my parts cheaper :O thank you for suggesting pc part picker, Noted Get an 7200RPM HDD!

    Yes. why 2 hard drive? :P
  5. its only 1 hard drive now :P
  6. stickmansam, had a look the wattage and i could use 550W power supply?

    How long will this build last before i need to upgrade anything?
  7. I put in a 750w so you can CFX/SLI later without having to get a new PSU

    I would expect the cpu/mb/ram to last about 3-4 years, with ram being needed first and cpu+mb lasting about another 2-3 years after that

    GPU would be in need of earliest upgrade, likely 2 years from now
  8. No one know anygood Keyboards or Mouses? Monitors :)?
  9. These are both IPS and LED screens

    21.5 inch one
