Advice Needed Please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all.

Firstly, I'd like to let you know I don't really know what I'm talking about when it comes to gaming Rigs, but I own one. I bought it pre-built off ebay about 2yrs ago. All I know about it is It has Q6600 processor, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD, and nVidia 9800GTX GFX card.

However, my beloved computer is dead...first thing to go was the gfx card, it was a BFG Tech 9800GTX...they were gonna replace it for me...then the company went bust...right after they accepted my RMA claim. So I replaced the card with a cheap card as I was skint.

All was fine for a while, then one day I went to turn on my PC and nothing happened. Nothing at all. So I'm assuming I need a new PSU.

Here's where I need help. I need a new PSU a GFX card and maybe a case on a cheap ass budget of £150 - £200...and I need advice on what one's I should consider. I'd quite like the case to have a side window and maybe some led fans..but it doesn't have to be top spec or anything.

So there is the challenge find a decent PSU/Case/GFX Card for under £200.
Can it be done?

Thanks for reading.

Thanks for the suggestions friend. I'm liking the first two links, but the case was a bit plain for me, I was looking for something with a window and LED's, the case is only for visual effect.

Cheers mate.

Hey, Welcome to OCN, I saw your "Hello" post which is what Directed me here.

As I live in Australia I am not sure about the store you like to shop from over in Europe. Although I remember someone on my steam friends list saying they shop at Novatech so found the items on there.

Cases are all personal preference so I left that out.
This is alright on your budget or this ... or if you can add a bit more money and get one of these.

For the psu's I never like going too cheap seeing thats whats powering my system.. Under your budget I would go for something like this or this

I think I may have gone over your budget.... I have a habit of that
If you can link me to a local shop you shop from I can customize it better for you.
