New pc

  grants10 16:48 03 Nov 2010

I know theres a few posts on here about specs of new pcs etc but im needing a new pc and im a little confused!

Basically i will be using it for general use and some gaming also, the main games being football manager and world of warcraft. In particular i'd like to play wow on relatively good settings.

I've put together a package on cougar extreme within my budget (£600) that i think will do what i need but i just wanted a few other opinions.

CPU: intel i5 760, is the standard cooler ok or should i upgrade? i dont know how or plan to overclock.

4gb ddr3 1600 memory

motherboard: asus p7h55-m, again this is standard and im not sure if i should upgrade to a p7p55d

Graphics card: Nvidia gts250 1gb

And what would be an appropriate power supply

Can you post a link to your package at Cougar?
I woud definitely upgrade to the P7P55D, the standard cooler will be fine.
Power supply, nothing less than 550W but more is you want, covers any major upgrades in the future.

hi gengis, thanks for your reply.

That is the build i was looking at. Switching to a p7p55d and reverting back to the standard cooling offset each other so its still just in my budget, comes to £615 including delivery. Thats with a standard power supply though.

Wrong link as the total comes to less than £300 on this one.

Go to your package then click on checkout then copy and past your components. Then post them here.
