    Hey! I have finaly nearly finished building my gaming PC. I want all you guys out their to tell me your thoughts. the reason I say nearly is because the computer has no memory! This is because the website has not delivered the item say it is out of stock despite being in stock when we ordered it. However everthing else is finished. Here are th specs:

    Zalman Z11 Plus ATX PC Gaming Tower Computer Case
    CiT 750UB Power Supply
    GEIL 8GB DDR3-1600 EVO CORSA Series PC Memory x2
    Intel Core i7 2600K Sandybridge Proccesor
    Sapphire Radeon HD7850 XFX Radeon HD 7850 Core Edition
    LiteOn iHAS124 DVD±RW Internal Optical Drive DL DVD RAM 24x SATA Black
    Seagate Barracuda SATA 6Gb/s 1TB Hard Drive
    Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Socket 155 Intel Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard
    Arctic PRO 7 Rev. 2 CPU Fan & Heatsink
    Samsung SyncMaster 21.5” PP2270 HD TV/Monitor

    Altogether including the ram it has cost me £763.64. The reason it is a great price is because things like the CPU fan & heatsink came free with the motherboard. And the monitor I got for under £95 on ebay (new), and the monitor is worth around £200.

    UPDATE: RAM has arrived and my computer is working quite fast. Windows rating is 5.6 because of the hard drive. Processor and Memory are 7.6 and graphics is 7.9.

    The art of irony is lost upon you.

    A SSD and damn you will never look back at installing windows on a puny HDD or whatever OS you intend to use.

    I've got a SSD and I'm strongly considering reverting back to HDD for Windows. That SSD could be better served as a Steam/Origin drive!

    Or, you know... I could always buy another SSD... the Samsung 830 (best one in the market) has had a price crash (similar to Crucial M4 before) and is now very well priced.

    Not quite sure what you meant, Originality...was that an insult?

    Not an insult. Don't worry if you don't get it - some jokes are too subtle for everyone to grasp.

    Something to do with needing an i7 to play everything? i7s are overkill. A good i5 with a good card will run everything.

    I was gonna go with i5 2500k but I found a price for the i7 at just a few pound more than the i5 which I though was great.

    You can get 120GB for £70. That's not so overpriced to me.

    Hopefully they will drop even further, to 50 cents per GB.

    My 1TB har drive cost less than that. So when comparing the two the SSD does look expensive. I may get one in the future.
