I'm looking to build a gaming pc within the next few months (will probably do a bit more saving for it first)
I'd prefer it to have a pretty fast processor and to be reasonably quiet. It will be used mostly for gaming but i do tend to like to have several programmes open at once, something which my poor 5 year old computer is struggling with nowadays ^_^.
I dont need a monitor but if anyone has some reccomendations they would be very welcome since mine is quite small, but its not something im desperate for. I have a nvidia 9800 gt graphics card i can take out of my current pc, but again any good reccomendations are welcome. I would like it to have windows 7, and as i live in the uk would prefer uk based websites and such so i dont have to pay huge amounts for postage.
And also a decent sized hard drive since WoW takes up a fair bit and i like to watch movies and such. Not in need of keyboard or anything like that.
Any help would be great, since im not sure where to start really.
@mfb236, i think my post does have that info in there since i did read that thread, although didn't think that it was a suggested format to set it out.
And thanks a lot silvune i look foward to seeing your idea =)
GPU: Recycle the 9800 GT for now, and then get one of these when you have enough/more money HIS HD 5770 £120
Total: £402, with GPU £522
The above system isn't capable of crossfiring because the mobo doesnt have enough PCI-E slots, so if you do want to crossfire then change to this motherboard:
Mobo: Asus M4A79XTD EVO 790X AM3 £87
Which would take the total to £442, & £562 with GPU. If you wanted to keep the crossfire capable system closer to £400 then change the processor to this:
CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 435 £65
Also if you're not crossfiring then you can safely change down to a 500W PSU, however at most you are likely to save £10; so not really worth bothering about.
I'd say that decent gaming monitors could be bought at around £150.
Just remembered that Windows 7 is needed, that is around £75. So save up to at least £500 without changing any of these other suggested components.
