Approximate Purchase Date: Well, now but if anybody thinks I should wait I definitely could.
Budget Range: £600-£750
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Internet surfing and very light word processing.
Parts Not Required: Monitor, keyboard, speakers, mouse, OS and headset.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I would like to buy it from the websites that build it for you. I'm liking what I built on Dino PC right now.
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Parts Preferences: Sandy Bridge for the CPU. GPU brand doesn't matter at all.
Overclocking: A big yes :3
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe but not right now.
Monitor Resolution: 1680X1050

These are the parts I customised

CPU: I5 2500k
Cooling: Corsair H70
Mobo: Asus P8P67 LE Rev 3
RAM: 4GB DDR3
Hardrive: 500GB S-ATAII 3.0Gb/s (It doesn't specify the brand.)
Dvd drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA (Again, no brand)
GPU: ATI Radeon 6950 2GB
Sound Card: Asus Xonar DS 7.1
Case: Zalman Z9 Plus
PSU: Corsair 650W TX Ultra-Quiet

I plan to play BF3 and Skyrim. Along with some other games. (Nothing too taxing).
Also, do you think I could OC that i5 to 5Ghz? Kinda the main reason I went with an H70

Also sorry if it isn't the right section. It isn't made by me. But it isn't really made by a big brand name either so I couldn't put it in prebuilt.

Looks fine, and btw, when you get it could you tell me how it is?, I'm going to order from this site soon.

Actually, maybe you should consider someone else. I googled them and got mostly negative reviews. And apparently the CEO is apparently pretty shady. Maybe I'll just build it myself.

I know, it seems if your PC has problems, then your going to, but if it is built fine, nothing bad will happen, in short, they have very bad Customer Service.

Scan 3XS systems are quite good. I'm looking at one now and the only difference between the one I mentioned is it uses an air cooler and its £5 cheaper. I think I could just use them. At least I know I'll get the PC.

Not a bad build you have there...google some reviews of that Asus board though to see how it does in regards to over clocking.

Looks good. Although I don't need the OS :3 I've never built a computer before, kinda intimidated by the whole idea of it. But I suppose it can't be that hard.
May 7, 2011 10:29:48 PM

Yeaaaah. I think I'll just build it myself. Not worth the hassle of waiting 3 weeks for someone to build it for you and paying £130 extra for it.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/288241-31-faqs-build-... <--- A decent "how to guide" ...but also check youtube. It's as easy as pie. The boring part is going to be the Windows updates...that take forever. Otherwise it's a piece of cake. If you run into any problems...well that's what this board is for. :)
