I need advise on products for a new build.

Hey, I bought a PC from a friend about a year ago and i have been slowly changing out parts to attempt to keep it up-to-date. I am wanting to upgrade from an i5 to an i7, doing so requires me to change my motherboard. This is because my current motherboard has the old 1156 slot for the CPU. However in doing that (also to fit in everything i want), i will potentially need a new case as the one i have is a micro case that fits my motherboard.

What i am asking is can somebody please advise me on a case + motherboard + i7 cpu that i can acquire. I have good Ram, PSU and a Graphics card that i know are interchangeable. I want good value for money but it isn't an issue. I would be very grateful if anyone could link me products that work well together.

Thanks alot.

Google for upgrade bundles - one result here click here The advantage of a bundle is that the seller guarantees the components work together. Have a look at PC World you can put together your own bundle, start with the case, and see how the prices compare.
