Could push up budget slightly if necessary More about : 600 gaming computer budget advice laircouk January 28, 2012 4:48:31 PM 1.] If you are a gamer, please use custom heatsink to decipate hot air. You don't want to fry your processor if you are playing such a demanding game. 2.] Regarding PSU, I would go for a Silver / Bronze 750W ~ 800W if you are running Ati 6870, intel i3 and other components that wants to crunch power! I would recommend these: Cooler Master GX 750W (Bronze) http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-coolermaster-gx-rs7... Corsair 750W (Silver) http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-psu-corsair-hx-cmps... Coolermaster RS800 - 800W (Gold) http://www.scan.co.uk/products/800w-psu-coolermaster-si... About the CASE, I would go for this, as it also has filters! Antec 902 (V3) Series http://www.scan.co.uk/products/antec-902-nine-hundred-t... I have this case before and it performs VERY WELL!
