Default New pc build.

I'm looking to build a new PC. Ignore my Sig, i no longer have that rig.

I will have roughly, £600. MAYBE £700.

Id need it for gaming, and multitasking.

What do you guys suggest? Intel, or AMD?

I don't need a monitor, or mouse, or speakers, just the pc it's self

Thanks.

I sold it awhile ago, as i got busy with my new job and had no time to game, but now im only working 3 days a week, currently using a laptop. So i though i'd give myself a Christmas present, and build a new computer.

And i do not need windows.

300r? If you want to spend more money I'd say push the budget in the way of a GPU rather than case. Like a 280x.

If i was to get the R9 270X, would cost me a lil over 700.

Is there any other builds i could go with?

The 760 is better than the 270x actually, that's why I said 280x.
You could go with another FX6300 build, but it would be slower at gaming than what's there. Personally I would just go with what's linked as it'll perform better than the 6300/5870 setup anyways. You can always change the case later if you really feel it's necessary.

I'm probably the most OCD about cable management and the 200r is rather decent for it. I've built over 10 builds with it so that's why it's just a standard I put in there. You can always find a cheaper or more expensive case to suit your budget if you like which is why I left some room between 600 and 700.

Well I wouldn't recommend anything I wouldn't personally buy. That's just how I work. The 280x for the price before the shortage was an excellent buy much like the 290 which is what I want. All in all, I think the 760 will do you wonders coming from your 5870 anyways.
