Description

Not yet completed! GPU card and case fans need to be bought and cable management needs to be altered. CPU OCing needs to be done as well! I will post more pictures and explain what's happening as I go along.

No colour co-ordination followed - this was purely based upon finding parts that fit my budget!

Many items are marked as £0.00 because I either owned them before or I acquired them free of charge - I will explain soon!

Thanks for looking!

Why not Windows 8/8.1? Would have had slightly better performance.

Nice build. Just wondering, how did you get the SSD so cheap and also, what GPU you are going to get?

Thank you!! I am planning on getting a gtx 680 (get some money back for selling the games it comes with hopefully) in a couple of months but I'm worried that it will be bottlenecked since my monitor is 22" 1050p....

the ssd is from novatech - its refurbished and i believe it might be an older generation ssd... but its my first experience with ssd and I absolutely love it! have a look and let me know if it is an older gen version - http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/harddrives-internal/solidstate/upto120gb/OCZ/OCZSSD2-2VTX100G.html?#utm_source=affiliatewindow&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=PCPartPicker
