    Need help with buying new pc :)

    Hey,

    Basicly I'm thinking about buying a pc from DionPC.com just wondering if you could give me some advice about this pc and about them, I really appreciate any advice!

    I'm from the UK, looking for a pc to last about 4 years (like this one has), with good performance from games like skyrim and for future games, budget is around £1000 (this one is £1,187.69). I'm not that interested in building this pc, I will for the next one but the last one I built went quite bad so I just want to buy.


    CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
    CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Prime SD1484
    Operating System: Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX
    Memory: 8GB Corsair 1600mhz Vengeance (2x4GB)
    Hard Drives: 1TB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
    2nd hard drive: Corsair 120GB Force3 SSD S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
    Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA
    Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB
    Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio
    Case: CM Storm Enforcer
    PSU: 700W Xigmatek


    Thanks alot!

    Are you building the PC yourself, or you buy a premade one? I have to go in a minute, so I apologize for keeping this short. Here's what I would change.

    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151095

    GPU: GTX 670. A 5-10% increase in performance does not warrant an extra 100$ for the GTX 680.

    Thanks for the reply, buying a premade. Now what I got told from a friend (not sure how reliable :P) is currently they are similar preformance but later they would have more support out for the 680 which would then start pulling ahead. If I'm talking crazy I will take your advice tho.

    So that 620W would be enough for a 680/670?

    Plus I'm tempted to change to the HAF case, is it worth it?


    Really appreciate any help!

    The 620W is plenty to power a 680/70.

    The HAF cases are not bad, but there are better choices in a similar price range. I personally like the Fractal Design cases. Arc Midi is a really nice one.
