  1. The big problem is with the power supply. It's not a trusted brand so I wouldn't be putting it in my system.

    I'd try to stretch to a 7850 2GB if you can find a deal. There's a big performance gain to be had for the extra £10-20.

    The case is poor so airflow will not be great. You could get away with a stock cooler if you don't intend to overclock.

    The link to Win 8 is an upgrade. Do you have an OS already? I don't suppose you qualify for Microsoft DreamSpark, where you could download it for free?

    This is the best I could muster for £400.

    Thanks for your answer, I don't have an os that I will be using on the new computer will this os work? - https://www.google.co.uk/shopping/product/5306983812550774675?q=windows%208&safe=off&hl=en&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.48572450,d.bGE&biw=1366&bih=667&sa=X&ei=dkzRUZeVH-vU4QTR_4CQCA&ved=0CI8BEPMCMAk

    I have found the 7850 is this the right one? http://www.saverstore.com/product/20336000/7725665/Asus-AMD-Radeon-7850-HD-2GB-PCI-Express-30-HDMI-DirectCU-II

    And for the case and power supply it has great reviews and it looks decent for the price. Thanks :)
  4. No, that's an upgrade as well. (It says under the 'write a review' button.) See my updated post above with regards to DreamSpark.

    That's a 7850, yes, but there are wallet-friendlier options. This is probably the best deal at the minute. http://www.ebuyer.com/454325-msi-r7850-2gb-gddr5-4800mhz-dvi-hdmi-mini-displayport-pci-graphics-card-r7850-2gd5-oc
