I'm thinking of buying the components to build a mid-level gaming PC, probably sometime this week. It will be a build from scratch, so will need everything; have a budget of up to Â£1000; will be primarily used for gaming (WoW, Starcraft2, Skyrim, Diablo)
It's been a while since I last built a machine, so just wanted to make sure everything is compatible/fits/right connections, etc
Board - Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 S1155 Intel Z68 DDR3 ATX - Â£120.99
CPU - Intel Core i5-2500K - Â£169.99
CPU Fan - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 CPU Cooler - Â£14.98
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz - Â£36.99
GPU - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti 900MHz- Â£169.99
HDD - Seagate 2TB Barracuda - Â£99.99
SSD - Crucial 64GB m4 - Â£66.99
Case - Antec 300 - Â£44.98
PSU - Corsair 600W Builder Series - Â£49.99
The rest are peripherals which are somewhat secondary:
WiFI - Edimax Wifi
Optical - LG Electronics 10x Internal BD Combo Retail
Been looking around at monitors, but haven't really found anything. Been looking for a 22-ish" LED screen.
One last thing - would it be worthwhile waiting for a month or so until the Ivy Bridge processors come out? I've been toying with building this machine for some time now, so another month won't really make that much of a difference. On the other hand, there'll always be something new coming out "next month". Will the new processors be a significant enough improvement to warrant the wait?
Thanks in advance!
