Sanity Check

Been given a circa £1000 budget gaming build for a mate.. Haven't done a build in a while, I had literally 10 minutes at lunch and came up with this..



Thoughts?

Aye only the RM sticks out, but it'l be behind the back, so not an issue.

Thought about it, but took the cost up little too high, I think a 550w should be ample (get it) for this right?

Anymore for anymore? I haven't missed anything, or missed a deal on a gpu? didn't wanna get a stock 290 due to bad cooler so stuck with colour co-ordinated MSI one.

If it was me I'd get a cheaper case so you could a better HDD (a Silverstone RL04 would give you tonnes of spare cash to do fancy things) . Otherwise its a good 'un.

Maybe drop the RAM to 8GB and up the SSD to 250GB?

You can also get the Fractal R4 with or without a window for less

Looks good, but when I combinded that CPU with cooler, Tom said the H100i is overkill. It's your call, though.

They spin at 7200RPM rather than the 5400 RPM Greens do.

Also, you could go for an Arc Mini R2 which is only 60 quid.

Then drop to a 2x4GB kit of RAM and he can easily upgrade it later, without going too much over budget right now.
