    Cheaper in regards to what what was your old build and how much are you looking to spend overall now. What components are you keeping or reusing. Also this build thats listed doesn't have a motherboard.

    I want to spend around £550.0 overall. My old rig was a £2200 system, but it kept freezing so I've returned it. I've changed the initial post now, to give a bit more info.

    If you have a P67 motherboard you probably have a decent 2nd generation CPU so a new CPU might not be necessary. I'm not sure if P67 supports the 3570K

    Recommend bumping up to at least a 7850: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/680?vs=549 Sapphire 7850 for $10 more: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=56&subcat=411

    The next step up would be a 660 and is the best bang for buck near your price range. MSI 660 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...14&subcat=2379

    The Corsair CX series is not recommended. Consider Seasonic S12ii 520W $55, Corsair TX550M Modular $60, Corsair GS 600 $70, Corsair TX 650 $75, PCP&C 500W Modular $60, BeQuiet! 530W Modular $67, XFX Core 450W $44, and XFX Core 550W $60.

    The case is good if old, the case doesn't come with all fan slots filled so you may need more and case dose not have ventilation on the bottom where the cpu's fan should sit.
