Not bad mate. I have roughly the same budget as you just capping off around £900 but just wondering do you do any video editing? Here is my parts list. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/w6z46h

Haaha, I like this one. Yeah I have Vegas 13. I'm currently trying to get into recording and Youtube. I love playing like almost all games so I could bring in some people. Plus I might start doing news on games and satire for fun. That's really what I wanted this PC for.

Sorry, it's been a while since I posted. With shipping costs, and everything I spent around $1350 I believe. Was shooting for under 1300, but its been worth it!

Hi mate with that graphics card what sort of fps do you get with the latest games at high settings and 1080p ???

The only game to give me a drop in FPS so far has been Dying Light. In times of extreme combat and explosions, I get around 30-45 FPS. Walking around, not staring into fires I'll get 60. DS3- 60FPS. Saints Row- 60FPS Rust- 60FPS. If I were yo turn down the settings to medium I'm sure Dying Light would be 60 all the time as well.
