Any Help appreciated thanks Tim More about : 700 gaming metal orient June 6, 2012 7:20:55 PM Does it have to be AMD for CPU? Intel is a better deal at your budget (and pretty much any budget atm). tim_bethany June 6, 2012 7:32:47 PM 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 Related resources £700 budget - gaming PC - Forum Low $700's gaming pc for christmas. - Forum £700 Gaming PC - Forum $700-$800 Gaming PC build (My first build) - Forum First time build gaming pc around $700 - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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 metal orient June 7, 2012 12:33:03 PM Decent enough, but the motherboard isn't great for SLI, and the PSU is not mentioned so probably rubbish. tim_bethany June 7, 2012 5:53:53 PM 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 metal orient June 7, 2012 6:19:37 PM Thinking about it,you may as well keep your cpu, psu, and case. would save a lot and lose very little performance. tim_bethany June 11, 2012 4:15:01 PM 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? metal orient June 11, 2012 4:38:35 PM Only trying to help you. Yes they would all work fine together. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
