    Making a grand total of £1060

    I know it's slightly over, if you raelly have to stick to £1000 then let me know and ill shuffle about a bit

    I chose AMD because it's a lot cheeper allowing you to get better components.
    If you dont want the 3D kit and monitor then you can get in the Asus 580 Matrix which is one of the best graphics cards.
    Included you have the best AMD motherboard available, a really good CPU and i've realised that i forgot about your HDD and optical, but im guessing your using a computer now rite?
    If not again let me know and ill shuffle a bit :)

    All the best and good luck
  2. What about a mars 11
  3. And could I use water cooling and add a 3D graphics Card or is my budget to small.
  4. Your budget is too small for water cooling by quite a bit. It's not the 3D card that is way out of your price range. It's the 3D monitor.

    Noahscorp gave you a solution that includes 3D glasses, but I think it's the wrong monitor. You need a 120mhz monitor such as this one:
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/23-asus-vg236he-black-3d-widescreen-lcd-monitor-120hz-1920x1080-1000001-400cd-m-2ms-vesa

    In noahscorp's build you have a weaker GPU and CPU, so you'll have to decide what your priorities are.
  5. the mars II? Its over £1000 and pointless :P

    In my build youll be able to run BF3 in ultra/ish with a little tweek on your GPU, otherwise get the matrix and leave out the 3D for now, the matrix will do anyything you throw at it.

    My apologies about the monitor i didnt read it all, its rather a 3D "effect" :P
    And its not a 3D graphics card, you just need an Nvidia card rater than ATI and the 3D kit with a 3D monitor :)
    How much could you push your budget? If you could go up to £1150ish then get this monitor:
    http://www.ebuyer.com/243897-benq-xl2410t-lcd-led-3d-ready-24-hdmi-monitor-with-height-adjust-9h-l5nlb-qbe
    Its the one i use :)


    My suggestion woud be to get the matrix on my build, and leave out the 3D kit and monitor for a little while, maybe buy one piece a month over 2 months?

    But for what your uses are you wont need to over spen on an intel chip :)
    For my build without the 3D kit and monitor but with an asus matrix 580 it comes just under £1000 :)
    Or mix and match between me and proximon by all means :P
