    Looks fine but honestly don't get the amd bulldozer, get i5 2500k or i5 3570k, with a intel compatible board.
    CPU i5 2500k MB Asus P8Z68-V PRO Ram Mushkin 8gb
    GPU Asus R9 270x CASE Antec 300 PSU Seasonic 520W
    SSD Kingston 240gb HDD Seagate 500gb OS Windows 7

    It's not bad. GPU could be better - Radeon 7770 is only $10-30 more then the 6850 and it's better.
    ASRock 990FX - FX-8320 @ 4.2 - G.Skill Sniper 8GB 1866 - Radeon 7770 - Raidmax 850 - WD 1TB - WD 500GB

    Yeah I had a good look through what the best GPU's were, and settled for a 6850. I will have alook at other CPU's though, thanks

    If you're not buying a premade computer, make these changes:

    Processor - i5-3570k ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116504 )
    Ram - Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB @ 1600MHz ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233186 )
    Motherboard - Any of these three with your brand of preference: Asus, ASRock, Gigabyte.

    Probs around £800-£900. Bit of WoW, Bit of D3. Looking to have a system that can run BF3, Arma 2, Skyrim etc pretty nicely.

    Bulldozer chips are very, very poor performers. Go for an equivalent Intel selection.

    What are these like for changes?

    Intel® Core™i5 Quad Core Processor i5-3470 (3.2GHz) 6MB Cache
    ASUS® P8H61-M LE/USB3 (NEW REV 3.0): M-ATX, USB 3.0, SATA 3.0Gb/s

    The H61 chipset motherboards are last-generation boards. While it will work with your system, you're better off getting something from the 70-series of chipsets.

    Also,it's worth noting that you don't need to go for a full 6-core Intel chip to compete with a 6-core Bulldozer. A 4-core will do just fine.
