Hey guys,

Here's some specs I have made up;

Ivybridge Ready Asus P8Z77-V LX Intel Z77 Socket 1155 Motherboard
Corsair HX 650W Professional Gold 80PLUS® Power Supply
Intel Core i5 3570K,1155, Ivy Bridge, Quad Core, 3.4GHz, 5 GT/s DMI, 650MHz GPU, 6MB Smart Cache, 34x Ratio, 77W, Retail
8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Jet Black, PC3-12800 (1600), Non-ECC, CAS 9-9-9-24, XMP, 1.50V
256GB Samsung 830 Series Slim 7mm SSD Basic Kit, SATA III, Read 520MB/s, Write 400MB/s
4GB Asus GTX 670 DirectCU II, 28nm, PCIe 3.0, 6008MHz GDDR5, GPU 915MHz, Boost 980MHz, Cores 1344, DP/DL-DVI/HDMI
Pioneer BDR-207DBK Blu-ray & DVDRW Writer 5.25" SATA
CM Storm Stryker White Full Tower Gaming Case Cooler Master
Corsair H100
Avermedia C985 Live Gamer HD
Sharkoon 1000 "Golf Ball" Quiet 19 dB(A) Case Fan - 36.7 CFM - The Best of the Best x4

Total: £1,416.65

The only problem is is that it is very expensive as I require a build of £1200 by march next year so unless the prices really go down something needs to go.

I think that my graphics card is too expensive for me as it can run crysis 2 on two screens max settings fine when I will only be using one for the same thing.

So basically I require a suggestion about you guys on what components to get bearing in mind I won't need a hard drive or windows.

Thanks.

you will have new ati cards and intel cpus out by then
so prices will fall for the same performance
670 4gb is overpriced, nice card but overpriced :)
