Hey, for my 16th im getting a budget of £350-£400 for the 'tower' alone. In terms of actually building it, i have experienced friends, so thats no problem. Not a brand nazi- dont care so long as it works and is worth the £!!
This is what im thinking- i3 bundle from amazon... here
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3
CPU: Intel i3 2100 CPU 3.1GHz
RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1333MHz
HDD: 1TB SATA Hard Drive
GPU: Sapphire HD 5450 1GB -only about £30- wouldnt want to spend anymore than £50 on GPU- open to others ofc.
Fan: i think the 'bundle' comes with CPU fan- maybe just a small system fan? (Mobo can take 2 fans inc CPU fan.)
Disk Drive: ASUS 24X DVD Burner
And PSU: - I have no idea what power i need!!! :S perhaps here
(CIT 450W Gold 12Cm Silent Atx Power Supply)-- there is a 550W version
I hope that CPU, Ram, GPU, Mobo combination won't bottleneck too. what do you guys think?
