Please could you check this for me?

Looking for a solid basic system for a friend that can be upgraded later on.

Thoughts??


Gigabyte Z77-D3H Intel Z77 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard £79.99

Corsair XMS3 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit (CMX8GX3M2A1600C9) £29.99

Xigmatek Asgard Midi Tower Case - Black £29.99

Gigabyte KM6150 Keyboard and Mouse Set £9.98

Sub Total : £248.26

Shipping : £11.75

I'm right on budget. Have windows 7, but might upgrade to 8 for £25 also have a monitor

a few questions...

1) Will the onboard GPU for the chip work ok with the mobo?

2) is this PSU a good choice?

3) RAM appropriate for this system?

Thanks guys, much appreciated

Another question. The future might bring a CPU upgrade maybe I5, maybe I7. Also might add a modest graphics card. Nothing mental tho. Based on this... Would you change anything? Ie PSU?

Cheers

Nope, Seasonic make excellent PSU'S.

The motherboard specced can only really take one GPU (Can take 2 but the second slot is limited to 4x)
