Default Buying a new computer

Hi my old one broke and am in need of a replacement. I am willing to spend £600-700 maybe a little bit more if you can justify it. I need it for statistics software and games like battlefield and wow etc.

Please help me as I'm lost on the internet haha!

Hi mate thanks for your time, it's a small software called SPSS but I don't know how much memory it uses. Bare in mind I'm a novice at computing but trying my hardest to learn haha! I might be slow to reply because I'm going to play some snooker soon

Well, poo. Ok gotta redo things then.

Take the 970 out and add this instead.
EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Dual Bios 2GB with ACX Cooling Nvidia PCI Express Graphics Card - 02G-P4-2775-KR - Scan.co.uk

Then add this.
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/micro...st-popular-one!

Comes in at 733.

Check out Newegg and their build videos. They instruct you on how to build a PC. It's pretty easy if you take your time.

Cool this looks nice, is this system what you would get if you were buying for that sort of money?
