Thanks More about : 850 gaming rig azeem40 a b 4 Gaming April 11, 2012 11:30:02 PM The price will be $5 more in the US, but Idk about UK. jmsellars1 a b 4 Gaming April 12, 2012 11:06:06 AM I think you can get a better system for that price. Perhaps something like this: i5 2500k - £143.94 (Ivy Bridge Equivalent ~£160) 8GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte 1600Mhz (2x4GB) - £32.39 MSI Z77A-G43 Intel Z77 - £76.79 Sapphire HD 7870 2GB - £262.79 Mushkin Chronos 120GB - £99.95 Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 500GB - £55.19 550W OCZ ZS Series - £46.79 Coolermaster Elite 430 - £40.79 Samsung DVD Writer - £11.99 Total - £770.60 on www.aria.co.uk The HD 7870 should perform similarly to the GTX 580 so it is far better than the GTX 560Ti. You also get a better case and a larger SSD. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
