For a budget build you shouldn't have an SSD really.

That saves about £70 without losing much (a few degrees in cooling with the cooler and a few less sata 6Gb/s ports on the mobo) meaning you could get a cheap SSD like this

thankyou! but i will be planning to overclock the CPU and is this cooler sufficient?

It's enough to OC I use it now with my 3570K... the Noctua is better but personally on your budget I would take the 212 and allocate the saved money elsewhere, running a single 7950 (even at stock the CPU wont choke this card) it's not like you are going to be needing any extreme OC unless you plan on some highly CPU intensive workloads

All the SSD crap all over again. If you do a clean install of Windows, don't install crap software that runs in the background, a 7200 drive is more than good enough for the system to feel "snappy". SSD are so overrated that it's not even funny. If I could go back, I'd put the money I spent on my SSD on my savings account instead. For a gaming PC it really doesn't matter. Since you're on a budget I'd definiteyl drop the SSD.

Good build from StayFrosty. I'd go with that.

Slightly over budget, but I've got a SSD, a brilliant PSU, and a great cooler.
