Use these for parts if I was you, just what I always go with:

www.ebuyer.com
www.novatech.co.uk
www.overclockers.co.uk
www.dabs.com

Do you need a case, monitor, keyboard, mouse speakers in that £500?

Do you want Intel or AMD, and do you want nVidia or AMD(ATi)?

www.scan.co.uk good for parts to

You dont need to spend a lot of money for a good rig but I would go with G.Skill Ripjaws, asus mobo and a SSD for windos then install your programs on a HDD and you will get gr8 speeds, as for your cpu you dont need super high end to play games I still use my Q6600 and I have not even had to OC it yet :)

b4 you get your rig you may wont to look at Onlive it coming to the UK at the end of the week and could be the beginning of the end for graphics cards

Personally for your budget and what you want to do I wouldn't do the above, you don't need it running super fast, just to play games well hence, an i3 dual core will be fine, I'd get an ASUS mobo as suggested, I only buy Corsair RAM personally, you need to spend decent money on a PSU, this is what powers your system, if you cheap out it WILL come back to bite you. SSD's are great but you can't really afford one and quite a lot of them have reliability issues. You will be fine with a standard 7200rpm drive from WD or Seagate. Case is personal preference it doesn't really matter. Graphics wise my preference is nVidia and then from EVGA since they are pretty much the best. You can get a fast EVGA GTX 560Ti for about £200.

A lot of it is personal preference but that is just what I'd do. Focus on getting quality components from the above manufactures. If you go for decent manufacturers cheapest models you might end up with a bit more to spend on the graphics (what matters most for you), but it is doubtful.

Im with Devastator on all points but one the cpu dont go dual core go quad core my reasoning is simply most gamers use there pc as media players, web browser and more and all at the same time (I know I do) on top of that more and more pc games are designed to utilizes a multi core processor

If you dont like that reasoning try this even gaming consoles have more then to core :P


Edit: Devastator I was the same Corsair RAM all the way but not only are G.Skill Ripjaws cheaper thay out proform corsair dominators look into it and give them a go sometime :)

Doubt you'll need the sound card with that motherboard, as it has all the sound outputs you'll need.


Mildly on topic (to those who tried to help me solve surround sound), I managed to solve my problems :). Problem was, I hadn't changed settings on the surround sound itself!

When you're building it, don't do what I did with mine and almost blow the thing up.
I connected two cables wrong - one should have blown the motherboard, graphics card and processor in one, if it had started up. The other would have blown those if I'd used an SD Card. The second one stopped it from starting up, so saved me there. My mate's uncle sorted it for me and works okay now, although there's something wrong with the network.

Get someone who knows what they're doing to watch over you, check it when you're done or build it for you.

You have a MASSIVE problem there. You have picked an AMD socket motherboard and an Intel processor (a now ancient one too). That will never ever work :lol: I don't rate the PSU much either.

Let know how much you want to spend and I'll put a build together for you with that case if you want.
