    hello there guys :D

    thing is i got £500 as my budget and i was wondering could you lend me your knowledge in building the new PC, what i will use the pc for is Gaming, and i was hoping i could hook it up to my tv 32" supports HDMI

    so if it's not too hard for you could you advise me on what hardware to get, thanks in advance ;)

    [edit (Kennysevenfold) just the desktop, so CPU, motherboard, RAM, GPU, PSU, case, fan ect.]

    lol.!! :D

    That would eat most games for breakfast never mind W7 :p

    TBH i wouldnt see much point in overclocking that to more than ~3.0Gz tbh, anything more would be a waste unless video encoding etc.

    that motherboard and stock cpu cooler is more than capable of such a mild overclock.

    :D
