Gaming Sandy bridge for this budget?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've got an idea of what I want but I would like to ask here to see what you guys would get for a gaming pc at a budget of £780, I will be gaming at 1920x1080. I only need a mobo, gpu, cpu, ram, case, ssd and for it to work with a 550w atx pro PSU.

Well, with that kind of budget, you could probably pick up higher wattage psu. What kind of performance at 1080 are you looking for (in your games)?

That looks great. Do you need a cpu cooler? Also, you may want to consider over the Nova. You may also want to make sure that your set-up will be fine with 550W (especially if you plan on OCing).

The write speed on that is 95Mbps while the Corsair is 240Mbps. Also the 550w should run it fine shouldn't it? I calculated the PSU power with the following calculator and it come out to 450w.
