Hey this is going to be my first build I have a £1500 but stretching to £1700 isn't that much of a deal, what is the best possible set-up I will list my preferences below.


Approximate Purchase Date: A little later this year 8 months maximum

Budget Range: £1500 - £1700

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Watching Movies, Surfing the internet

Parts Not Required: Keyboard and RAM

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: novatech.co.uk, aria.co.uk, overclockers.co.uk

Country: United Kingdom, England

Parts Preferences: Preferably Intel CPU but AMD is fine to

Overclocking: Maybe some minor overclocking

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future

Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional Comments: I would prefer a windowed case, also must have rather good airflow.

Thanks in advanced

Also seeing as I have to wait a few months for the money should I get a Sandy Bridge or wait for Ivy Bridge.

Same with Kepler should I get that instead of an 5xx series?

Yeah I know, I've read that Ivy will run a lot cooler than sandy and they will have an i5 3570k for around the same price and keplar... well its nvidia its bound to be good to some extent unless you prefer amd GPU's
