Hi Bletch, I've had a look on amazon for the 660 ti (I think thats what you meant?) and the cheapest I've found is This for £190, thats still obviously a big bonus but I thought it best I check incase I've overlooked something or one occasionally goes on offer?
The only problem with modifying the 3XS Custom Gamer 5i is to upgrade to a i5 and get to even the 650 ti would set me back about £110 over budget.
SSD. I was thinking about that, Installing the games on when I'm using them most; I just wasn't sure if that was a practical approach but if you think that's possible?
Thanks for your help :)
Sorry about the confusion, I was planning on building it myself, unless encouraged otherwise. In the end i'll go with whichever is the best system for what I can afford. I was just under the impression that building it yourself was cheaper. However looking at that the link you sent I'm starting to doubt that.
If building it myself would enable me to get a better system then thats what I'll do, what would you recommend? Also what is the equivelent Nvidia card for the 'ATi Radeon 7770 1GB Graphics Card' just so I can understand where it stands. Only because on both systems it costs £79 to upgrade to the 'Chillblast NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2048MB Graphics Card' How much more would I need to put to it roughly for decent gaming machine?
