Hey guys, he set the bar at £800 pounds, and said he wants to be able to upgrade in the late future with no worries, so heres what i just ordered for him



Rate it out of 10 for me please
And i know the PSU is extreme overkill, its just this is going to be extremely future proof

You dont need nearly that much PSU for extreme future proof. The current build could be run on a 400W PSU, so I assume that even a 600-650W PSU would be extreme overkill. And it will save you money.

Not to mention that coolermaster isnt renowned for its high quality PSUs...more like lower quality.

Everything else looks good though.

Yeah i know, but this was also slightly based on his judgement too.
My first proposal was to get a 600W...

Ditch the 1000W and use the few extra bucks to get some decent RAM.

Dual Core i5?.. should be getting the quad revision.
too much overkill on the PSU.
why get a 5770?.

you should have picked a better GPU. don't think he'd like the 5770 much.

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/226553 think this is better
or

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/227172
with the money you'd save by choosing a 600W PSU, you could easily upgrade the GPU.

there's no point going with a dual core i5, go with a Quad. the blu ray drive isn't needed.
don't know too much about RAM.

but tbh the PSU is way overkill. get a 600-700..
the GPU needs to be upgraded.
the CPU should be a quad.
and the Blu Ray drive needs to be thrown out.

overall.. 5/10

You wont need anywhere near 1000w with that system, it would be best to swap that for a 600W and spend the savings on getting a better motherboard. 1000W is way overkill for that system even with furutre upgrade such as 2 6870's, I'm running a very overclocked AM3 system full watercooled 6870 and 2 hdd's plus an SSD of a 600W, I prevously ran the same system on 520W without problems.

I chose the 5770 as he's only gaming at 1360x768 on his TV
