I do want to save as much space as possible, so even a mATX case is not out of the question. I do like the bitfenix prodigy case, but it is rather expensive for what it is. Any thoughts?

Micro atx build with bitfenix? you can do it!

Been looking at parts and then I found this deal on AWD IT.

For 500 something pounds I get a brand new GPU with the OS and better overall performance. Is this a good choice? How well known is this website for computer builds?

Thanks for your patience. I am just thinking if there is a big difference between the components that I would be getting if I kept the GTX 670. Im trying to justify the value of reusing a 670.

There's not much point reusing the 670. Not when you can get something that will kick its ass for £100.

It's old hat with old drivers .

The RX 570 is quite a bit faster(probably more like significantly faster) than that 670. You could sell your 670 for a little bit and probably buy a cheap game on sale. Not worth holding onto. It's probably only good for 720p e-sport titles. Card is 7 years old.

570 is almost as fast as a GTX 970.

It really is light years ahead.
