Gaming PC Setup - £600 - £850

Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as I know what to buy!

Budget Range: £600 - £850

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming - I would really like to play WoW on Ultra at around 60 FPS +, as well as WoW I would preferably like to play a few up to date games such as Diablo 3, CoD's etc

Parts Not Required: Keyboard , Mouse , Speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Anywhere, as long as the website can be trusted.

Country: England , United Kingdom

Parts Preferences: Anything that will do the job, I would like a monitor that is relatively cheap and any size really but can play WoW on Ultra at 60 FPS +

Overclocking: This is my first ever time building my own PC so I probably won't overclock.

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: I would like to buy a monitor, any resolution, any size, as long as it gets the job done.

Additional Comments: This is my FIRST ever computer that I have made so bear mind that.

Thanks

Rosza !

    This comes in at the low end of your budget, £622, but if you want to spend more go for an Intel i5 and a better graphics card. I would wait till Ivy Bridge comes out though. These websites also are UK and trusted.
  3. Hey , thanks for the reply I was thinking I may get the i5 but apart from that the spec you have suggested seems very good for the price thanks for all your help :)
