This build came to around £1100.
Id like to cut it to around 900- ish if possible.
First of all - the processor, he will be wanting to play new games on the highest settings, will he need an I5 6600K or will an I5 6500 work for him?
Motherboard - If he does need an I5 6600K, is this the cheapest/best motherboard for him to be able to overclock on.
Cooler - If he is overclocking, would the CoolerMaster Hyper 212X be sufficient cooling?
I'm open to suggestions, if you'd like to change anything in the list, just suggest what and why and ill keep an open mind about changes.
Any feedback is appreciated.
