£600 budget build for friend, hows this look ?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
Building a system for a pal who has £600 and I was wondering if I could get some help from the community .

He'll be gaming at 1080p, wants med to max setting at 60fps.
We are in uk and only order from Ocuk due to there amazing customer service.
I have fans he can use and we can pick up an k&m for £10, already has a xbox controller.
Any suggestions.

Thanks for all help.

It's ok I guess. Will he be overclocking the CPU?

 

Also, a good quality-made 550W PSU would be more than enough for this. That enables you to get the super high-end Super Flower Leadex Gold in black or white:

 

Black: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-038-SF&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=2463

 

White: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-043-SF&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=2463

 

It's fully modular too.

Unless he is oblivious to overclocking, you could go with 8320E and overclock it. And add an SSD. For gamer better if 240GB, but even 128GB is a must have these days. 128GB are sold for something like 50 euros these days.

And of course wait for the proposals that will advice you to buy Intel instead.

I am sorry, but that 600B PSU is kind of junk. :/ If we're going to use PCPartPicker, then here:

 

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9 for £49.98.

 

This is a much better PSU, and yet it's just the SeaSonic S12II inside of a metal case that says XFX Pro Series Core Edition on the outside.

 

Or here's a SeaSonic S12G inside of another XFX PSU for £55.56: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550gts3x (only, I don't know anything about the store that's selling it)

 

Or here's a fully modular 550W SeaSonic G Series inside of yet another XFX PSU: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550bbefx It's only £64.98.

 

Or for £67.94, the 650W EVGA SuperNOVA G2: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20650y1 This is a Super Flower Leadex, which is the best of the best.

 

The 550W G2 isn't worth mentioning because it's £67.04. lol

I sorted by 550W and up, lowest price first and it ended up being directly below the 600B.
