Right i have been putting together a list of components with a friend of mine, spec'ing out a new desktop computer for myself. As this is my first build i would really appreciate some feedback and comments on the components and any suggestions you nay have with regards to saving money or getting better bang for my buck.


I intend to use the computer for general use, some gaming (so more recent games like crysis, homefront, need for speed) and also photo and hd video editing. This is the part that most confuses me as photo and video editing take up a lot of resources similar to gaming but i want to ensure that i will be able to use this machine for a good 5 years if not more. So either tried and tested parts that will still be rated in a few years time or some scope in which i can develop the system as time goes on.

Space wise i am not that limited so the case size is open to change and other than that i would really like to hear your opinions and ideas on this proposal.

cheers in advance guys.

There is already a few incompatible parts, which website are you using to buy the components?

To elaborate a bit:

First, I don't know what you are trying to build.

The motherboard is an LGA 1156, which for all intents and purposes is dead.

The CPU is an LGA1366.

The PSU, not even going to go there, but no one makes a quality 850 watt PSU that cheap, no one. Corsair, Seasonic, most Antecs are safe bets. Don't know what PSUs are popular on your side of the pond.

The one component that can be changed to make this work is the motherboard, ie.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128423
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131665
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131641

Having said that, building a Socket 1366 platform at this point is a bit of a waste as LGA 1155/Sandybridge systems are faster, and cheaper. A P67 motherboard combined with a 2500K, or 2600K is hard to beat. Overclocks to 4.5-4.6 are common.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627+600093976+600009016&QksAutoSuggestion=&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&Configurator=&IsNodeId=1&Subcategory=280&description=&Ntk=&CFG=&SpeTabStoreType=&srchInDesc=

Combine that with 2X4gig sticks of DDR3 1600 RAM, and you are good to go.

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

I'm a little confused as well. Remember, Newegg does not ship to the U.K.

I often have to point out the Newegg shipping restrictions just in case new members don't realize and go to buy. The U.K. does have ebuyer, which is pretty good from what I've seen.

Your motherboard and cpu is not compatible. I would change the power supply to another brand. Also you can get a faster hard drive.

I would use killer's list as a template, but replace the GPU with a PowerColor HD 6790 1GB GDDR5 DVI HDMI which will usually outperform a 550 Ti. Or, for the same price, the XFX HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 which will easily outperform a 550 Ti. Remember, AMD should be launching new CPU's in June so prices, and what you should buy, may change then.
