My budget for the new computer is:


£1000 (  $1527.61 )

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? 


Playing video games / web browsing.

What software do you intend on using on the computer? 


Skype, Steam, Chrome, video games such as Battlefield, GTA 5 etc.

Do you play games? If so, what type of games?


  Batt  lefield, League of Legends, CS GO, GTA 5, DoTa 2. 

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? 


I normally have a lot of programs working in the background while playing video games.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?


Normally a lot of music.

Will you be overclocking?



Location for online shopping/shipment/prices?


Any store which will ship to the UK / has the lowest prices for the parts.

How many monitors are you planning to use?


2, 1080p monitors.

Do you need peripherals? OS?


No. I have both.

Any particular reason why you are upgrading?


My PC which I bought 3 years ago, is already starting to struggle with new games, and getting really hot with AMD hardware. I want to go with Intel and Nvidia and build my own computer for the experience, the parts I chose are http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/6DZZdC 


Any thoughts on this?
