Hi guys

My house mate has asked me to build her a gaming PC and she has a budget of around £700. For this she will need a monitor as well but no PSU as she has a 650W PSU which I think will be fine to use.

No need to include a Windows license in the budget either.

She mainly plays WoW but it needs to be able to run newer games as well, such as SWTOR. :)

I was thinking of going with an Intel i5 CPU, please can you recommend some specs? :D


Cheers
Steve

with another case option and the sapphire HD7850, which is too popular for its own good. The MSI 7850 Twin Frozr also great, but also over budget.

In any case, shop around.
