    Hi, planning a new build in the next week or two. Will mainly be used for gaming (BF4, Arma III, Fallout 4) and also as a media centre for netflix, amazon etc. Any advice for this build, anything that might not be compatable together or cause problems, haven't built for quite a while so might be a bit rusty. Would ideally like the price to stay the same or even go down if there might be cheaper alternatives with similar performance anyone can suggest. Need everything except a monitor.

    Edit: Forgot to add an optical drive, not something I'll really use a lot with exception to installing Windows. Would I be able to install it from an external DVD-RW if so would pick up the Samsung SE-208GB/RSBD USB2 External DVD-RW without adding much to the budget.

    Hi Bud, that system looks good to me. Also as you probably know, the non k series intel cpus are now overclockable so you should have plenty of headroom for overclocking as well!!
