What does this build look like?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
This is the build I am planning. My budget is £850. Here is the list of parts:

Intel Core i5 3570K
Xigmatek Dark Knight Nighthawk SD1283
Asus P8Z77-V LX2
8GB Corsair 1600mhz Vengeance (2x4GB)
WD Blue 500GB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB
Fractal Design ARC Miditower
700W Xigmatek Modular

Feel free to rip it apart and change it as I am looking for the best rig for my money.

I mainly play Planetside 2 and Fallout NV. I am planning to play Far Cry 3, Bioshock infinite.

Thanks.

I just put the Dark Knight on my new setup with an AMD FX-6100 and it idles around 20-25C ...Awesome air cooler. Only bad part is the bracket blocks my cpu fan connector. So I had to use the system fan....The intel brackets are a big different tho

A lot of people have been telling me that a Gigabyte UD3H is the way to go for low-end reliable motherboards. I would recommend that.

I would also recommend a GTX 660 or 660Ti instead of the AMD graphics because they will offer better PhysX performance in Far Cry and Bioshock.

Consider an SSD like the Crucial M4 to speed boot and game load times and increase reliability.

You don't need Corsair RAM. It's crazily overpriced. Get Samsung RAM, it overclocks like crazy and sips power.

Don't get a Dark Knight. In that price range, get a Hyper 212 Evo. If you want to get high-end, get a Noctua DH-14.

I would recommend to you a SeaSonic or Corsair PSU, (here the overpricing is basically worth it) because they are famous and well respected brands here on the forums for PSUs.

All your parts were well chosen and provide great value except for the PSU and HDD. You only need a 500W to power that machine. Why 500GB? The 1TB are not that much extra for twice the capacity.
