    [Christmas Build] Need Help With £700 Build!

    Hello,

    This year for Christmas i am building one of my mates a computer his budget is around £700 and i was wondering what sort of parts you guys can come out with compared to what i came out with.

    I'm UK so also in pounds!


    Thank you,Looking forward to what you guys come up with!


    -Andy


    Quick Edit i would like to water cool for my friend, but no preference as i think it just makes the whole pc look really cool.

    Kinda goes over the budget plus I had to take out the SSD..
    Non K i5 = smaller price + no OC -> there's no point of spending money on water cooling.
    K i5 = bigger price etc..

    I think @Lovroman 's build is great, I'm not too good with Pounds so i don't know what's a good price for stuff over there :l
    Though I'd change the case depending on personal preference. Corsair can get a bit pricey.
    I'd also get a 760/770 over the 280x (Even though I'm a huge AMD fan)
    I have th 760 and they're developing software right now called GeForce experience which is great.
    Has an inbuilt game recorder called shadowplay and the quality is (IMO) a lot better than fraps and the file sizes are quite small.
    GeForce Experience Tweaks your Game Settings Automatically | GeForce

    Also, I'd change the HDD to Western Digital (WD) because I've had nothing but bad experiences with seagate.

    Other than that, it should all be pretty sweet
