I would like to build a computer to suit my needs. Here is what my not-so experienced head put together.
i tried to look mostly at clock speeds for most things. i understand this is not best for CPU but i'm really walking blindly here. the RAM might be excessive, but i wanted to pave the way for upgrades.
Mobo: ASRock 970 Extreme4 - motherboard - ATX - Socket AM3+ - AMD 970 - Socket AM3+ £57
HD1: OCZ Vertex Plus R2 Series 120 GB Internal SSD Serial ATA-300 2.5" £58
HD2: Seagate Barracuda 2 TB Internal hard drive Serial ATA-600 3.5" 7200 rpm ST2000DM001 £50
Case: CiT N88LN Mars Midi Tower Gaming Case with 1 x Blue Fan No LCD £26.00
PSU: CoolerMaster Silent Pro M1000 Power supply - 1000 Watt £1.00
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 650Ti 1GB 19103787 £89.00
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) Memory Kit PC3-19200 2400MHz DDR3 DIMM £57.90
CPU: AMD Black Edition - AMD FX 3.6 GHz Processor £65.00
Other1: ASUS PCE-N15 Network adapter - PCI Express £12.00
Other2: 2 Port PCI Express SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Adapter USB adapter - PCI Express x1 - 2 ports £17.00
Left out a fan(cooling in general I guess), not really sure about what is needed for cooling or even if this stuff would fit together.
I am not sure about some of the prices Google threw up. (particularly the psu) but I have left price room for more bits
To be used for moderate video editing and gaming with best setting possible for price.
Extra bits (monitor, OS etc..) i'm happy to get but would like to see some money left over for them
am looking for a big upgrade from my current Advent monza N2 laptop
thanks in advance,
What's the cpu ?
Does show which FX is it, i recommend going with at least the FX-4300 or the FX-6300.
Those prices seem good.
Were did you get a 1000w psu for 1£ ?
There's a typo in there.
Also i recommend going with a better ssd like this one : http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/part/sandisk-internal-hard-d...
Sorry again for the triple post but for some reason i can't edit my replies
It seems you have good sources for parts in uk, it's indeed cheaper.
I mean you get a extreme 4 mobo for 57£, i can't find one at that price.
The ram also and the gpu, are well priced.
That xfx 450w is pretty good more than enough for a 650 ti.
It all fits, with the extreme 4 you have space for pcie cards like the wireless card.
The psu is of quality and have juice for the system.
You can drop the pcie usb 3.0 card, the asrock has usb 3.0 ports.
Ty looks like the corsair gets my vote. i see what you mean about the case now i read the specs of other ones. i thought when i put this together that the case was just for the looks and size but it seems that the other two are better.
well its pretty tight overall now, i think £20 left before the £500. That includes the current case's cost so that leaves a potential £46 for a case, although djangoringo did suggest the corsair 200R which seemed pretty good when i looked at it.
