Hi guys,

I have someone who said they can put together a pc for me I just need to get the parts but the thing is I have no idea what to buy ! This is where hopefully you guys come in, could someone please make me a list for a fairly decent gaming pc that would have to work with this resolution 1360x768 and my price limit is £550 ! If anyone could help than that would be great thanks !

Cheers

Nothing wrong except a slower processor,you can get better PSU a Corsair 650 for less money. The 66870 beats the 7770 though the 7770 is not a bad GPU. You can get cheaper ram and not notice any difference. But overall not a bad build.

Ask the person whose going to build it as they should have the know how and knoledge. Or have look at ebuyer or novatech. Chromus has come up with very good suggestions.
