Budget Range: Max £600 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Listening to music, watching HD films, gaming. Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, case Case: Silverstone GD06 Motherboard: Must have USB 3.0 as the case comes with two 3.0 ports. Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Ebuyer Country of Origin: UK Parts Preferences: i5 Sandybridge Overclocking: No Would love some input from you guys. Thanks More about : 600 gaming htpc ps3hacker12 a b 4 Gaming June 14, 2011 6:11:36 PM heres a kickass gaming system with a 60gb ocz ssd boot drive (will give great boot times), it can be removed or downgraded if you want to save some cash tho: wjonesy June 14, 2011 6:51:55 PM Looks a good setup, I think I need to be more specific. The case I want costs £100, this has to be factored into the budget. So perhaps cheaper graphics card.

A Silverstone GD06 GD05 or GD04, probably will end up with a GD04 on further thought. http://www.scan.co.uk/products/silverstone-gd05b-grandi...(takes-std-atx-psu)?utm_source=google+shopping&utm_medium=google+shopping vz7 June 14, 2011 10:33:18 PM I'm not sure you need an i5 for what you're looking for. i3 should be plenty for gaming and you don't even need a graphics card if you don't game. If you're willing to switch to i3 you can get some savings that way. wjonesy June 15, 2011 9:49:50 AM I thought an i5 was overkill too, but I'm looking to do a little bit of future-proofing.
