    Right guys I'm looking at buying and building me a new gaming PC with in the next few weeks to a month, I'm guessing I want to spend around £600-£800 on it, what I would like though is if it's not much to ask, is could someone provide me with some good websites as to where I should get everything from, the more the merrier also, if you would like to provide me with your opinion on which system I should build go ahead, I am looking at going triple screens in the future, but not in the near future unfortunately.

    I will need a monitor, keyboard and mouse included in the price so if you do give me your opinion, please cater that too :) Thanks guys!
     
  2. What size of monitor are you looking at getting? That will set you another £100 at least.

    By the keyboard and mouse, do you want super sick razerlogitechcreative gear, or just a standard one? :roflmao:

    I will send you a PM later with some info on things if I remember. Gotta go out for a meal but will do it when I'm back. :p

    I guess I will set the money aside for the monitor so no need to worry about that in the price and on size, not entirely sure, what would you suggest? I don't really know :S ha

    Keyboard and mouse, to begin with I don't fancy spending a lot on them, so something ordinary and I will get gaming keyboard and mouse later on...

    Thanks though :) Looking forward to the PM :p

    I've been browsing around and have a few things in mind right now, by the way I'm looking at building an AMD System, so far this is what I'm looking at...
    Case http://www.xcase.co.uk/product-p/case-x-case-l13.htm (Should I add the 700w Dolphin PSU or get one separate?)
    Motherboard http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showp...ktdetailseite&emcs2=CP-337-AM&emcs3=MB-060-AK
    CPU http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-337-AM&groupid=701&catid=1967&subcat=1825
    GPU http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-297-AS&groupid=701&catid=56&subcat=1699 or http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-289-AS
    I know I need more components, this is what I've found so far :)
     
  5. MBO Gigabyte 970A-UD3/ CPU FX 6300(with Thermaltake Contac 21 cooler bought separately)/ PSU XFX 550W or Corsair CX 600W Bronze/ GPU HD 7850 1GB(or HD 7870 if within budget) / 1x4GB 1600MHz(cheapest you can find), you can add RAM later when prices drop again, they're rising all the time now / Case Zalman Z5, best case in that price range, no doubt.
