    I have made the decision to build my on PC and I was wondering what you guys thought of this build: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2rLrP
    This is around the maximum I can spend and I figured I may as well ask you guys what you think?
    If you have any improvements, please reply with this format:
    Thanks - KoalaPandaz <3

    Dang. 4TB? Why do you need that much space? A 500GB HDD has lasted me for over a year now.

    The thing is, the most anyone needs is a 1TB, unless your build is also for a job. You could save $100 from that 4TB, or put that $100 to a better graphics card. That 4TB could literally last 10 years.

    Edit: Wait.... you never even chose a graphics card....

  7. The MOBO does have graphics on board, so the build would still work. (That is wrong, it will NOT work, left it in so Swag's post makes sense)

    But you are much better off getting a 1TB and use that $100 for a graphics card for sure. Also I don't see why you would use 1 stick of 8 GB of RAM and not 2 sticks of 4 GB.

    LOOK AT THE NOTE AT THE BOTTOM

    [​IMG]

    It doesn't have on-board graphics, but it supports Intel HD Graphics, which is integrated into the CPU. So with the i5-3350p, you have no graphics AT ALL. This CPU has NO integrated graphics. You have no graphics in any way, shape, or form.

  15. [MENTION=3837]KoalaPandaz[/MENTION] I would say that you should get 2 4GB RAM. Dunno why people say it's better but having two that add up to 1 is better than 1???? But look at this if you want http://astore.amazon.co.uk/fr013-21?node=2&page=2 ...Don't start hating but it's a pc I would want just take and pick if you want. <3

  17. It is recommended that you do get Dual-Channel for better performance. You DON'T need 4TB of data storage. You can get a cheaper hard-drive and then get Dual-Channel. Also, look at this - http://i.imgur.com/N3WUG2w.png . You do need a case with a USB 3 header. USB 3 makes your life a whole lot better. Also, the stock CPU cooler for the i5 is perfect. You're not going to be overclocking this thing at ALL. Remove this - http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/6245/3lmx.png . That is not needed. The stock cooler does include thermal paste, which the AF cooler doesn't. Also, you don't need a sound card unless you're building a home media server (which this is a gaming PC). I would always recommend to use a headset for gaming. If you message me, I can give you a copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 so you don't have to pay that much.

  20. I also have a 660 ti. Works pretty well on my pc.

  21. If I may make a few suggestions: loose the sound card. The onboard solution will be enough or better for your needs for now unless you are an audio connoisseur. Also swap out the A-Data memory for some Corsair Vengeance series which comes up cheaper and has the same specs. Save on that Artic Cooling CPU cooler, it will perform the same or worse than the stock from Intel. Instead look into the Cooler Master hyper 212 EVO. Much better cooler and very silent as well.
