It's been 6yrs since my last custom build. So I figured it's long overdue for a new one. I've been eyeing up the overclocked bundles for afew months, trying to decide which bundle. To be honest I found the overclocked bundles abit off putting as I'm not a overclocker. I guess their the more popular choice. After going round in circles, I stumbled across the forum. I realised after reading up I'm alittle out of sorts with the latest offerings. For reference I will be upgrading from a cough cough P4 machine. Planning on the build being as future proof as possible.
Budget is around £1500. After realising how outdated most of my current parts are. I'm going to need more then I thought. PC connected to Sony TV so no monitor needed, also have a wireless keyboard with touch pad which is fine still, have Win 7 as well. Use will be mainly general plus I play alot of browser-based games with multiple accounts running. Everything film,tv and music wise also gets watched on my pc mainly.
[CPU] Intel model[Mobo] ?
[CPU HSF] ?
[RAM] 16GB+, I tend to multi task alot which means many programs & browser windows open
[HDD] 3TB, I like to hoard my downloads
[SSD] 64/128GB ?
[PSU] ? [Case] ? Colour preference would be black or silver although not hugely important
[OS] Have Win 7 Pro
[Extras] Blu Ray Rewriter? Any thoughts?
Thanks to NickCPC for the helpful new build thread.
