Need some help on this rig

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello, OC! My friend wants me to put together a computer for him, his budget is somewhat low, (£300-£400ish)
I have so far gotten (just a draft idea, to see what you all think)


GIGABYTE GeForce GTS450 - £115.91

i3 2100 - £86.48

Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 (rev. 1.0) - £54

Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333MHz Non-ECC (9-9-9-24) 1.50V - £20.00

Coolermaster Elite 330 Case With Coolermaster eXtreme Power 500W PSU - £49.98

he only wants it for playing World of Warcraft, and Minecraft. Would this be a good system?

(Keeping this updated on my latest opionions on what to get for him, so may change)

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor (£88.88 @ Amazon UK)
Higher clock so it's faster and only £2 more

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 (rev. 1.0) - [/url] (£54)
Can't find the one you listed at that price but if you found it at that price buy it.

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£32.00 @ Maplin Electronics)
For MC you basically need ram that's fast (1600MHz) and more GBs.

Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card (£83.62 @ Scan.co.uk)
Much better then the 450 and it's cheaper. (Benchmarks)

Case: NZXT Source 210 Elite (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case (£35.98 @ Scan.co.uk)
Higher quality case.

Power Supply: XFX 550W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (£49.99 @ Amazon UK)
Much better 550w 80+ bronze PSU.

Total: £344.47

Do you have a HDD or will you need one?
