Im hoping some of the more tech savvy people on here can give me any advice on the following system im thinking about building....yes another can i have a top of the range system for peanuts i guess

 

ive only got a laptop at the minute so basically i need a full system monitor windows etc..

Hows is this for the bases of a system with upgrade potential down the line when money allows??

Oh and this is basically the top of my limit at the minute thats why was looking for future upgrades down the line

Im looking at overclocking the cpu and possibly the gpu but not sure yet as i know i could just crossfire another card at some stage.

 

am i going down the right lines or totally barking up the wrong tree??

For cheap gaming, always AMD. Most AMDs costs about half of an Intel for the same performance. Only downside is you need a slightly more powerful PSU (seems to have that covered with 600 watts) because high power consumption and a slightly more powerful fan (seems to have that covered as well) because more heat.

Also do consider a larger storage. I know from personal experience that 500Gb sounds huge after having to get by with 120-320Gb for years, but you keep thinking that and it fills up REALLY quickly. I'd take 2 of the 500Gb drives if you have the space for it, or swap it out for a 1Tb version if you don't.

Yeah, you're better of with another CPU. The Intel Pentium g3258 is made simply to overclock it. Which means you'll have no use for it, unless you have the correct equipment and knowledge.

this is the rig i made for myself(not enough money right now) :(

CPU  AM3+ AMD FX-6300, 3.50GHz BOX Black Edition (95€)
MB   AM3+ 990FX Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 (116€)
HDD  SATA3 7200 500GB Seagate Barracuda (48€)
OPD  LG GH24NSB0 SATA (17€)
GPU  GeForce GTX650-Ti Asus 1GB DDR5 (120€)
CASE Thermaltake Chaser A21 (49€)
PSU  530W Thermaltake Smart SE SPS-530M (50€)
RAM  DDR3 8GB 1866MHz Kingston HyperX Fury (80€)

 

those are prices in my country(total is something about 455£)

so,if you made something like this,with monitor and OS,you should stay in your budget.

 

and two more things: why is windows so expensive,and why would you buy it anyway?
