Because firstly the I3 goes to 4ghz pish. It's dual cored with hyperthreading too. For example.

£229. That comes with a good board, good cooler and ram.

Obviously the reason many around here would go I3 on your budget is because it leaves far more headroom for a better graphics card

At that sort of level to match an I5 overclocked you would need a 470/570 to get the most out of it. Putting a 460 in there wouldn't squeeze the performance out of it. Don't worry about that bundle being pre overclocked, it's all under warranty.

BOOOM.

PSU

HDD

DVDRW

Case

And that should be everything. £566. Get an SSD for about £60, laughing. Will absolutely blow you away
