I have a budget of £600, this is my first time building a computer and i want to be able to play games at relatively high graphics.
Want to be sure my parts are compatible as well.

Appreciate any advice.

Thanks in advance.

Current components:

Motherboard: P8Z68-V LX


CPU: Intel i5 2500k

Case: ?

Graphics card : Sapphire HD6870


PSU: ?

Ram: G.Skill RipJaws 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Dual Channel Kit

- DDR3+PC3-10666C9+1333MHz+Dual+Channel+Kit+?productId=48204

Haven't decided on case or power supply unit, also should i stick to stock cpu cooler?
Could push up budget slightly if necessary

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)

Corsair 750W (Silver)

Coolermaster RS800 - 800W (Gold)

About the CASE, I would go for this, as it also has filters!

Antec 902 (V3) Series

I have this case before and it performs VERY WELL! :)
