Budget: £650-750 (excluding monitor) Main uses of intended build: running demanding 3D design software: sketchup, revit and 3DS Max (and photoshop) and occasional gaming: (hopefully) e.g. elder scrolls V: Skyrim, The Witcher 2 and Doom 3 Parts required: This is what I've decided on, but as it's the first computer that I'm building myself I am expecting to be wrong in places/ have things to modify about the set up so fire away with any criticism Processor £237.91 Intel Sandybridge i7-2600K Unlocked Core i7 Quad-Core Processor (3.40GHz, 8MB Cache, Socket 1155) Motherboard £140.07 Asus P8P67 Pro R3 P67 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard RAM £56.71 Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3 XMS3 8GB Desktop Memory (2x4GB) Graphics I'm a bit stuck on this. There are 2 that I can't decide between. £119.99 - VTX 3D ATI Radeon HD6850 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E 2xDVI-I HDMI (PCI-E) Graphics Card £125.99 - MSI GeForce GTX 460 HAWK "Super-OC" 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card Power Supply £47.99 I found power really tricky to pick! I've been on calculators that quote 400-450W for the computer and I've seen posts on forums saying more power is needed for similar PCs. Really confusing. Be Quiet 530W Pure Power PSU Hard Drive £34.31 SEAGATE Barracuda Internal 3.5" SATA Hard Drive - 500GB DVD Drives £12.29 LG GH22NS50.AUAA DVD-SM 22x Internal SATA Drive / Black Case £54.99 ASUS Vento TA-M21 ATX Mid-Tower Case Previous build information (list details of parts): Laptop... and I want to keep it. Monitor resolution: 23" 1080P TV (I believe it's 1920x1080) Storage requirements: 500GB If I go over then I intend to be using an external hard drive. Will you be overclocking: yes... eventually when I feel I need to, but while it's new I don't think I will. Any motherboard requirements (no. of USB, Xfire/SLI, fan headers): none Extra information about desired system: Total price: £707.77 That's the price I'm happy with paying, but I'm willing to move £50 or so either way if there's a good enough reason. I already have a TV that I'm going to use as a monitor through a HDMI cable, already have a mouse and keyboard, and I will also be buying a WiFi adapter and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) but won't go into prices etc because it's probably a waste of your time! Sorry if I've written too much and put you off but any help & ideas are appreciated! Cheers.
