I'm looking to build mu own PC for university but I'm unsure of what components to pick and was wondering if somebody could help me out.
I want to use it for Minecraft, The Sims and maybe Skyrim. Also for internet browsing and word processing. I can spend about £800.
I've been looking at the overclocked bundles on scan.co.uk and also threads on here and came up with this:
Optimised - 4.3GHz Within wider safety margins for balanced thermal & acoustic characteristics.
Intel Core i5 3570k, Ivy Bridge, 3.4GHz, Quad Core, 6MB Cache fine
Corsair H60 Hydro Series - High Performance CPU Cooler fine
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H, Intel Z77 Chipset fine, normally we always recommend this good value
16GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance LP, DDR3, 1600 MHz overkill unless your gonna be doing some serious video editing
Microsoft Windows Home Premium 64 Bit - OEM fine, but remember you get no support and the serial is one time use only
650W Corsair Enthusiast Series - Modular - 80 PLUS Bronze fine
1GB EVGA GTX 560 Ti SC, GPU 900 MHz, 384 Cores, 4212 MHz GDDR5 for around a close price you can pick up a 7850 or 6950 which are better
This comes to £740.21 but I would also need a case.
Is there anything that I should change? Also, what case should I get?
Thanks for any help in advance.
