That spec above will get you almost identical performance to the one above but saving over £75.
yeah i could do with a hard drive tal but i should be able to get a copy of 64bit windows
Btw, this fan is about a tenner cheaper and wouldn't be much different: http://www.ebuyer.com/140478-zalman...-775-am2-am3-754-939-940-cooler-cnps9500a-led
I've used it in the past and had no problems.
Hard drives are a little weird in the pricing nowadays, so I'll leave it up to you:
500GB (£55): http://www.ebuyer.com/272944-seagat...cuda-hard-drive-7200rpm-16mb-cache-st500dm002
1TB (£70): http://www.ebuyer.com/173804-samsun...-hard-drive-sataii-7200rpm-32mb-cache-hd103sj (double storage for £15 extra)
2TB (£85): http://www.ebuyer.com/319641-barracuda-2tb-sata-3-5in-7200rpm-64mb-6gb-s-in-st2000dm001 (double again for another £15 extra)
I guess you don't have a case either?
If you don't have a case, just search through this until you see one you like at a nice price.
Tal you should go into PC sales so once ive bought all this tal are you gunna come set it all up hahaha overclock it and everything hahaha
I work in IT, so it's second nature
There's quite a few guides online and people will help you out here or on teamspeak if you get stuck. Just say when you've bought the stuff and people can give you a hand
Just remember to lick the transistors for luck.
Nah but seriously though, post when you get the parts and if there is anything your unsure of, people will help.
The overclock is simple as changing one line in the bios. Its not like the old days where nearly everything had to be changed in increments for the oc to work. On my motherboard it was as simple as changing a 30 to a 45.
Also Aspira I know the bulldozers aren't great against the i5 but it is £80 cheaper for the loss of a few fps. The demand for i5 2500k is keeping the price up.
Thanks guys, much appreciated, hopefully ill have all this stuff within 2 months tbf, have to put in some overtime at work
3 quid for thermal paste are you mad?
I am pretty sure that the boxed cpu will include one and zalman products also include their own if one is needed!
Yea but arctic silver is worth it. The stuff you get free with CPU and fans is usually quite crappy.

Arctic freezers comes with arctic silver, another reason I rate them. If only they looked good like other makes.
The thermal paste will last as long as you are building your own computers. So not exactly a bad investment of £3.
Btw, I wouldn't recommend arctic silver. It degrades too easily and you should really be reapplying it yearly at least. Each to their own though.
Also, I saved over £75 compared to the original build (that no-one seemed to comment on) giving an almost identical one, and £3 for thermal paste is a big deal?
Tal did you get my conversation? and thanks everyone, youve been a massive help
