As the title suggests im looking to build my first system aimed at gaming and media streaming but as always budget is an issue so looking at spending around the £600 mark (or $1000) for a decent furure proof set up with some quality components.
Though I used to be fairly into my hardware 4 years travelling and military service has left me massivly out the loop and so any and all advice welcome.
This is what i had in mind so far:
ASUS AMD 880G AM3 Motherboard (DDR3 1066/1333/1866(OC), SATA 3Gb/s, RAID, Micro ATX, VGA)
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Six-core Processor - 3.20 GHz, 9 MB Cache, Socket AM3, 125W, 45 nm
Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3 XMS3 8GB
Cooler Master Silent PRO 600W Modular PSU
Sapphire 11163-02-20R HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 PCIE Graphics Card
THERMALTAKE ELEMENT V ATX/microATX Case
Western Digital Caviar 1.5TB SATAII 64MB Cache 3.5-inch Green Internal Hard Drive
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
Still need to source monitor so I'm already over budget but can make use of my current screen for now.
Would also look to add wifi card and tv card in the future as well so need the upgrade room.
As I metioned any advice welcome and please correct any glaring conflicts/poor choices as I'm still playing catch up here.
Thanks in advance
