Default Check my build please.

Hi, just hoping someone could check over the components of my prospective build. This is my first time building a computer. I want to spend about 300. This build comes to 316. I already have a screen, mouse and keyboard. Are the choices I made ok? Anything I've forgotten? Thanks!

well that's pretty much it, but what would be the main use for the pc? we could see if theres some better parts for your money depending on your needs.

Thanks for replying so quickly. I really just want a fast computer that will last me for a while and something that will be easy to upgrade in the future. I will be using it for games but I'm not a hardcore gamer.

If you can spend a little more you can get a ATI 4770, which will obliterate the 9600, well worth the money spent.

I had another look and if I spend another 50 I could get this graphics card and PSU, would it be significantly improve the performance? Should I go for it?

i managed to squeeze in some better parts but still keep the cost low. the total for these is 349, including VAT and their approx. shipping cost.

this cpu will work faster than the one you chose. the 4850 is faster than both the 4770 and the card you had picked and this power supply will also handle everything in this rig, it is from a very good brand, dont worry .

oh, and if you can, buy an extra case fan to help exhaust the hot air, since the case only comes with one intake fan.
