    Only really needed if you will definitely overclock. This is a good performer in both temps and quietness. You will also need thermal paste if you buy a heatsink. Something like this: Arctic Silver 5 3.5g £6

    Case: Antec 300 £43

    If you can find something else you like better then that would be cool, but this is a good one for the price. It will need fans, so that would cost about £15 to sort out.

    Disk Drive Anything £15

    Should give you enough money to get the periperals you need. I don't have a good idea of what display to suggest, so you will either have to do the research yourself or someone else will have to suggest one.

    A good solid build.

    You'll need at least a 1680X1080 resolution for that build.
    If you intend to get a 1280X1080 then you can cut down on the GPU, perhaps a 5770.
  3. Anyone else suggests another build just to compare?
  4. I think you need to be clear with your preferences on monitor resolution, OC and above all, CF/SLI.
  5. Ok well i will overclock, monitor resolution is I dont know because the £1000 budget includes a new monitor aswell
  6. For comparison look over the Bit-Tech's May 2010 Buyers Guide Enthusiast Overclocker May 2010
    With a copy of Windows 7, speakers, a keyboard and mouse of your choice and a nice 23" LCD monitor like
    Samsung P2350 23" 1920x1080 £150 you should be good to go.
  7. Iff no CF/SLI
    take Silvune's setup,
    buy Corsair 550w for PSU,
    Corsair H50 Liquid cooler instead of the Scythe Mugen (you don't need a thermal compound because its already applied for the Corsair).
    velociraptor 10,000 rpm HDD
    You might want to consider getting a 770 mobo instead, since you won't be needing to CF.

    Mouse and keyboards are based on ergonomics, it really depends, but you can buy a set for around £15
    You can buy a monitor (with a rating) around £110. You really can't go wrong at eBuyer.

    If I were you I'd just buy all of the components at ebuyer.
    This is because ebuyer is cheaper and cuts down on the delivery costs. (I've used eBuyer and Scan, often found ebuyer better)
  8. Came up with this still need a case. Any suggestions?

  9. Actually I should correct myself, the Antec has two exhaust fans (top and rear), you might want to put two intake fans in tho.
    If you're willing to go £5 over budget, then this is a good case: Lancool PC-K58 £54
  10. £5 is fine so what you think of the build im not sure i selected the correct CPU cooler?
  11. You can read up on the Corsair Hydro H50 CPU Cooler here. It's sealed unit water cooler. A bit more work to install than an air cooling unit.
    You can also look over other CPU cooler options in the Cooling section @ BitTech or over @ FrostyTech - Look for the Top5 list

    Your parts list looks fine. Double check your RAM compatibility with the motherboard here

    What kind of case are you looking for? Functional? A bit more dramatic and aggressive?
    Antec 300 £41 Coolermaster CM690 II Advanced £80 CM Storm Scout Case £72
  12. BTW YOU NEED TO BUY 2 EXTRA SATA CABLES.

    THIS IS IMPORTANT!!! BECAUSE THE OEMs DONT COME WITH THEM.
  13. They do come in the motherboard accessory pack though.
    May need 1 Sata cable though. Im not sure if you can use an e-Sata cable on an internal HDD or DVD.
  14. Alternatively you can buy a non OEM internal DVD (which should come with a sata cable, and cost is truly marginal)
