Hi there, I'm new to posting on this forum but have previously used it for advice about certain purchases, so thanks to all contributors! I'm looking to build a new desktop to replace my ~5 year old Mesh PC in order to both save a bit of money and learn a bit along the way. I'll use it for gaming - but not particularly serious - and work, which involves running lots of applications at the same time (word processing, spreadsheets, statistical analysis software like STATA and SPSS etc.). From my old mesh I can salvage a DVD-RW, HDD and monitor (running at 1980 x 1080). I would also like to future proof it as much as possible, so i don't have to spend much money in the near future again to be able to play recent games! I only really want to spend around £700 but I've put a basket at scan together and gone a bit overboard: http://www.scan.co.uk/savedbasket/308015e783d04fb1aa73657e56a5924a Any advice as to if the build would work/ if i've gone over the top on any components would be much appreciated. The excess costs are partly due to unnecessary but nice extras (SSD) and attempts to keep the core pieces for a few years (motherboard, PSU, ability to overclock CPU), so if anyone has anything to say about how useful these are that would be great. Thanks!
