I have decided on the 550W, but i still aint sure bout the gfx card. my ATI choice wasnt on the link given, which is 512mb and DDR3, whereas they only showed the 512 DDR4's, which were FASTER than the Nvidia by quite a way. This makes me suspect that my ATI choice would be barely slower, if at all, and i am just not sure if that 25 quid id worth it for such a miniscule performance hop.

Ide get the 1950pro.. there will be hardly and performance diff at all between DDR3 and DDR4.. And the 1950 will play all the games u want it for.. then for your birthday or w/e you could get a new GFX card..

Thankyou VERY much pat, that means i am finally decided on what to get. The total cost is £540-ish. Thats with the 1950 pro, and the 550w PSU. So, that means a tenner to spend... but on what? better RAM, different case?

Lets see your reccomendations!

Which one? with a fan on the side panel they would be fine yes. I dont know if they have a slot precut for one. but when u add the window, you can drill four holes for a 120mm fan on the side panel.

well, i like the coolermaster best. I think i would slap an antec 120mil in the front or back, then an antec tricool with blue LEDS in the side. then get meself some blue cathodes.

But wouldn't the vents on the side get in the way?

No. It will get enough airflow through it, but, with it being a cheaper case, could probably do with a fan replacement on the front, something abit more powerful... With a fan on the side it would be fine.

P.S. imo that case you linked to looks tacky. Would look better if you got a nice clean case to start with and modded it yourself. I prefer the gigabyte as its aluminium, But that personal preference.. get w/e you want. + the gigabyte has space for a fan on the side panel
