Trying to put a £550 build together. Need advice please.

I am currently trying to put a hardware list together for a £550 build.

The hardware that I will be using so far:

I would love some input, and mostly I need a good motherboard to complete the build.

Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

Cheers

  1. Get the pro 4
    Power supply sucks. Get a good brand like seasonic 80+ or antec
    Case looks cheap,try cooler master haf 912
    Ssd get mushkin cronos deluxe,ocz vertex3,corsair force gt,Kingston hyper x,patriot wildfire/Pyro or Samsung 830.
    Get the ivy bridge i5 3450 for about the same price
  2. SSD: Intel, any of the brands allanitomwesh listed above except ocz vertex 3 (STAY AWAY)!

    OCZ's "3" series e.g. vertex 3 and agility 3 have had high return rates which is why you would want to avoid them.
