Manny - that'd be great if they're going spare, do you want anything for them?

So what did that cost you all together?

Was just over £1150, including Windows 8.1 - I've since bought an LG 1080p monitor.

Really happy with it all - been gradually downloading all my Steam/Origin games onto it and bought a few new ones to try like Crysis 3.

Also stuck Half Life 2 and its episodes onto it with the cinematic mod, looks pretty amazing! Loving it so far and great fast service from overclockers.

H-hi!

I'm also looking for a pc mainly geared towards gaming just like HailToTheKingBaby! and I was wondering if anyone had any build in mind. I would like to play most of the modern games on high/max graphics with good fps at 1920x1080. I'm willing to spend around £1000 to £1300 and I would like to actually put the part together myself. I've been considering the build that Dark Dragon 64 suggested but my pc won't only be using it for gaming. I am planning of taking up a computer games development course and a media development at my college and was wondering if there was anything else I would need or any improvements I could make. (I'm pretty new at this pc building thing and any help would be appreciated).

Thanks for any replies!

You can save time by gluing it all together instead of using screws. :simper:

Best of luck.

You could have come out of it with a worse CPU. The 8350 isn't bad.

Bit depressing that it's being beaten by a chip from 2011, but whatever. Your performance won't be affected much by it, and you can hope that 8 core threading will start becoming a thing (it won't).
