  1. You won't fit those parts in 1000£, since you need the os and monitor, also the i7-3770k is unnecessary for gaming.
    Here's a list within your budget :

  2. Thanks i really appreciate for the time you took and look for me this all looks great, and this will run crysis 3 bf3 on max settings? Lets say I stretch my budget so it will run those games..

    Thanks again
  3. It will max out BF3, crysis 3 will be playable also at very high quality settings, if you can afford to spend a bit more on a 7970, get a 7970.
  4. great i will get those parts maybe a more stylish case thanks for your advice, down the line can i get a second 7970 and do crossfire, is the mobo compatible for that ?
  5. Was going to comment with
    "if you swap to the 4-M board you could save yourself a little more $$ for the 7970, the 4-M will only be a hinderance if you're using 3+ cards. other than that, it's identical."

    but for some reason in the UK it's $1 difference... wish Australia was like that, lol.
    Django's build is on point for this, great system.
