Default new build recommend

hi im looking to make a nice build, my current oc is a stock emachine, ive got 500 to spend im not massively concerned for gaming, the only game i play is football manager. i really only use photoediting applications such as photoshop , and also vegas.

so really for me it is a bit about performance not for gaming.


Coolermaster Elite 330 Black Case With CM eXtreme Power 460W PSU *SPECIAL OFFER* - Ebuyer

is that a good offer for a psu and case ?

im basically looking to put together a build soon

ive got 500

to spend on a build, i dont want an os or hardrive or dvd drive

i dont need a monitor

The offer is pretty good actually. The CM power supplies aren't bad.

Also, check the other thread you made last month about this very topic. While some of those parts are not in stock right now, it gives you a nice base to work with that Yami suggested:

Take out the GPU from that build and you're almost there really.

if you're after a £50-60 case, why did you ask about a bundle for your opening post?

Anyway, this is a good case:
Coolermaster CM690 Dominator Black Mid Tower Case - No PSU - Ebuyer

Actually like Yami said, that CM elite 330+PSU is not bad at all, you might as well stick with that. Good find too. Plus you can always get that one and mod it to your liking. I looked around a bit and there's not much there, and at least with that case it comes with a PSU.
