  1. Does it have to be AMD for CPU? Intel is a better deal at your budget (and pretty much any budget atm).
  2. i have never looked into Intel because when i did my fist build they were twice the price, if there's a Intel CPU for the same price with better performance then id go for it
  3. If you don't have to have AMD CPU you can get this from aria.co.uk

    750W OCZ ZS Series 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply

    Total cost with P&P and VAT: £766.51

    Somewhat more expensive but a stronger CPU and GPU
  4. the only things i want to change are the ones ive got a or next to i.e. the CPU + MB im pritty set on the rest so if i kept that id be adding about £100 to it so its not bad will look to see how much better the i5 is
  5. If you were happy to not overclock you could get much better price:

    Comes with windows 7. Can run maxed out on almost all of the latest games (Battlefield 3 will run ultra settings and GTA IV also maxed) And only £25 over your budget :D
  7. Decent enough, but the motherboard isn't great for SLI, and the PSU is not mentioned so probably rubbish.
  8. not a chance in hell im buying a pre built system of a ebay store they put the shittest components together with a few good ones and advertise it well dont be fooled plus ruins the fun of building.

    the only advice i really need is will everything in my list work well together and whats peoples opinions on the bulldozer's vs 1100t
  9. Thinking about it,you may as well keep your cpu, psu, and case. would save a lot and lose very little performance.
  10. my current system is fine so if i had that attitude i would keep the lot, can someone literally just give me a yes or a no if the ram, mb and cpu work well together?
  11. Only trying to help you.

    Yes they would all work fine together.
