New build for ~£750. Tags: New Build Systems Last response: December 7, 2012 4:14 PM in Systems Share hastro225 December 7, 2012 2:44:21 PM Hello everyone, I'm wanting to build myself a computer for the first time (Mainly for gaming, programming and general work.) and I think I have the parts I need, I'm just unsure as to whether it's all compatible or not, so here are the parts: Case: NZXT Tempest 410 http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005MMW4DM/ref=ox_sc... CPU: Intel i5 - 2500k https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Intel+Core+i5-2500... Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77-DS3H http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007KZQFOS/ref=ox_sc... Heatsink: Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0068OI7T8/ref=ox_sc... Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004CRSM4I/ref=ox_sc... Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 500GB https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/500GB+Seagate+Barr... Solid State Drive: Kingston Technology HyperX 3K 120GB http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007R67FNA/ref=ox_sc... GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008HV63NM/ref=ox_sc... PSU: 600W Corsair Builder 80PLUS Bronze https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/600W+Corsair+Build... Wireless: TP-Link TL-WDN4800 N450 Dual Band Wireless https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Networking/Wireless/Wir... Can someone please tell me if it's all ok, and whether there may be a cheaper product that suits my needs. Also, I've heard that people have had trouble with corsair vengeance modules as they are too tall and may come in contact with/block the heatsink, will this be a problem in my build? Thanks, Hastro225. More about : build 750 g-unit1111 December 7, 2012 3:45:01 PM No point in pairing a 2500K with a Z77 board as you lose the key feature of Ivy Bridge and that's PCI 3.0. You need the 3570K. There's better SSDs you could be going with other than that outdated Sandforce drive. Get this instead: http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Storage/Hard+Drives+-+SS... Get the low profile Vengeance RAM: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CML8GX3M2A1600C9-Vengea... Otherwise that looks good. Alternately you could consider dropping the SSD and upgrading your GPU to the 7950. hastro225 December 7, 2012 3:48:02 PM Awesome, thanks for the help. I've been told that SSD's are the best thing to have if you've already got a decent GPU, so would it be really worth it to drop it and go with the 7950?

If this is a gaming rig I always try to say that you should get the best GPU that your budget allows. You can always add an SSD later on but that all depends on what the primary use of this rig is. hastro225 December 7, 2012 4:14:41 PM Fair enough. I'll have a good think about that one, thanks a lot for everything. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedApproximate $750 budget.
