Need a new build, please help?


Aug 31, 2012
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week (the closer the better)

Budget Range; £350 (i could probably stretch to £400) (uk)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (html and java scripting, browsing the internet, gameing, playing music, skype, watching movies)

Are you buying a monitor: I've already got a monitor.

Parts to Upgrade: I don't have any parts.

Do you need to buy OS: nope, i've got windows 7 pro.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (, ebuyer,

Location: uk, london

Parts Preferences: I don't really know, because i dont know if intel is worth the money, this is my first build.

Overclocking: Maybe , i like the idea of it.

SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: I have no idea what resolution my monitor is/can handle, all i know is that its an alright monitor which can display what i need :L

Additional Comments: This is my first built, i've watched my friend build his computer about 2 months ago, and it seemed alright. just have to watch out for static electricity. would like to game.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: At the moment i have an netbook and its very hard to html and java scripting. i have an xbox at the moment, and i find on some games the graphics aren't no where near the same quality as pc.

Include a list of any parts you have:
* i have an 300w powersupply, but i dont know if that will be enough.
* 120gb hhd

Thank you

Got it. No, it's more likely your 300w isn't of decent quality and won't handle the 7770.
