Hi,

I'm building a PC for gaming and making video's, I want to to be able to capture gameplay from my PC and possibly xbox 360.

I'm in the UK and I don't want to spend much over £1000. I've decided on a few parts already, but if you think they're not going to be compatible let me know.

GPU - Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 3 £317.60 (scan) CPU - Intel i5 3.4ghz Ivy Bridge £172.20 (Amazon) Mobo - Asus P8Z77 - I Deluxe £131.98 (Amazon) Ram - Corsair Vengeance low profile 8gb £33.36 (officenerd.co.uk) Case - Bitfenix prodigy black £64.99 (ebuyer) PSU - ? HDD - ?, I've been told two HDD's will allow me to capture game footage. CPU cooler - ? Windows - I expect 8 comes out soon but I don't know the price yet.

Total so far: £720.12

I'd appreciate any help finishing this build.

Many thanks, James.
