HD7850 is overpriced in UK right now and all you are doing is gaming.

Here's the AMD system I put together. That way you can check the benchmarks too.

The HD7850 that partspicker had wasn't the Amazon price. It's just giving you an idea of performance with the benchmarks.

Both those set ups look really good for the money. The AMD setup would have to be with the larger case, not sure if he wants to go larger though.

Don't forget to get a SSD for your Operating System partition. (Windows 7)

I suggest a 128GB SSD and it will be the most important part of your rig.

Agreed! SSD is the best upgrade I've done in a while.

Problem is all the SSDs worth anything are 50 GBP or higher .

Crucial m4 64GB seems to be the cheapest reputable SSD.

Samsung 840 (non Pro) 120GB is running 70GBP or so , the 250GB is around 130GBP.

Crucial m4 is supposed to be the most reliable on the vote forum?
