Sub £900 All-Rounder

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, my father has kindly allowed me to build our new PC from the base up. It will be used for standard programs (Office, etc.) but me and my father also game a fair bit, so that should be taken into account. the price must include Monitor, keyboard and mouse, speakers, etc. etc, so I realize i'm not going to get amazingly fast performance

So far i've been thinking of:

Coolermaster 690ii Lite + GX650W - £99.99 - HERE

Asus M4A87TD/USB3 - £68.25 - HERE

AMD Phenom ii X4 955 BE - £104.52 - HERE

Crucial 4GB DDR3 1333mhz - £34.85 -HERE

Sapphire HD 6870 1GB - £155.46 - HERE

WD 500GB Sata-II HDD - £34.98 - HERE

Lite-On DVD-RW - £14.99 - HERE

Hanns G 24.6" 1080p - £135.26 - HERE

Microsoft Keyboard + Mouse - £29.99 - HERE

Total - £678.29

Any suggestions welcome, but to be fair I don't want to go with Sandy Bridge/Wait for Bulldozer

Thanks in advance!

Also, please try and get the best price/performance ratio here. The money I don't spend on the build is going to charity presumably, so thank you.

6950 + shader unlock = golden. However, I'm not big on that psu, but it should be fine.
