  1. Okay , hello there my name is Jack and I came up on this forum to ask for some help with tips/info from experienced people on how to build a proper gaming computer .

    My back story , I am not a hard core gamer playing on a high maxed settings , or spent thousands of Euros / $ on pc hardware/software .

    Recently my old motherboard broke and I decided it is time to upgrade my computer hardware.

    What I have left and thinking of using is :

    My Dvd/Cd writer
    Sata hard disk 160 gb
    Ati Radeon HD 4600 1gb

    (I Also got a free i7 2600k 3.4 ghz from a friend of mine (unused) with an TX3 Cooler)

    Now what I am looking thinking of buying is :

    Motherboard
    Power supply
    8~16 Gb ram at 1600mhz or higher
    Computer case
    x2 80mm fans and x1 120 mm fan

    I was searching the net and came up on this few items :

    Motherboard : MSI P67A-C43 (B3)
    Power Supply : CORSAIR GAMING SERIES GS600 600W PSU 80+ CERTIFIED CMPSU-600GEU
    Ram : CORSAIR CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9B VENGEANCE 4GB PC3-12800 BLUE x2
    Case : ASUS VENTO TA-822
    Fans : x2 SHARKOON LOW NOISE 80MM CASE FAN / x1 SHARKOON SILENT CASE FAN 120MM

    This all will cost me 323 Euros.

    I have a budget of 350 Euros to spent.

    So what do you guys think ?

    I'm looking to be able to play the latest FPS games like New call of duty / battlefield 3 / medal of honor on medium settings.

    Any help / tips / or suggestions of what might be better please post above , any help will be really appreciated.




    Thank you - Jack.
