Hi All,

A few months ago i was looking at a replacement temp card for my old pc in bestbuy bristol and the bloke in there recommended overclockers when i get a new pc.

I have ordered a gtx 680 from scan this weekend then followed up an order with overclockers for the following parts

Intel Core i7-3820 3.60GHz (Sandybridge-E) Socket LGA2011 Processor - Retail

Asrock X79 Extreme 4 Intel X79 (Socket 2011) DDR3 Motherboard

G.Skill RipJawsZ 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 PC3-14900C9 1866MHz Dual/Quad Channel Kit (F3-14900CL9Q-16GBZL)

Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Full Tower Case with USB3.0 - Black

Corsair Hydro H80 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler (Socket LGA775/LGA1155/LGA1156/LGA1366/LGA2011/AM2/AM3) (CWCH80)

OCZ Agility 3 60GB 2.5" SATA-3 Solid State Hard Drive (AGT3-25SAT3-60G)

OcUK Battle 750W Dual Rail High Efficiency Modular '80 Plus' Power Supply

Samsung SH-S222BB/RSMS 22x DVDąRW SATA ReWriter (Black/Silver/Biege) - Retail

And thats pretty much my budget spent... havent built a pc in 7 years so hope this is a good setup... your thoughts ?

It seems pretty cool. You should be able to run the new HD version of OcUK at at least 60fps. I am trying to run it on a MacBook at the moment, and the lag is killing me.

Make sure you post results from the Facebook benchmark (once you've installed the latest version, obviously), as perhaps it will inspire me to upgrade.

Also, welcome! I will be back in Bristol at the end of the summer. :)

If you're spending that much on a system then you'll NEED a better power supply, (I'm not talking more wattage either). One crucial component of the system that is always overlooked. If you buy cheap ones you risk the rest of the system getting damaged.
