I just added the price of all the core PC parts I bought . It came to £558.03. That's 258 more than I intended on spending at first to be honest. Then I got myself a keyboard, mouse and xbox controller (not to mention thermal paste and sata cables which add £10.03) which all total to 70.65.

Therefore my PC in its entirety is a 628.68 build. Now I desperately need a job. Razz

In comparison, what did yours come to?

Damn guys!

What are you thinking of upgrading in the near future, if anything?

I'm thinking of throwing in an extra fan or something if I can fit it. Maybe add an SSD and a water cooling thingy :3

By the way, fucking hell, Shig. Why did you spend so much on your case (aside from the fact that you can afford it).

Either way, I only spent £25 on mine, and it's sturdy, easy on the eyes and does what it's supposed to do. Except my graphics card was too big for it so I had to tear out one of the HDD shelf thingies (whatever they are called).

Shush! I'm trying Razz

A few cable ties & good cable management, also a modular power supply is needed.

^^ Get some cable ties or use some sellotape ! You need good air flow to keep temps in your PC decent. If your GPU is dumping heat into your case I suggest sorting out those cables.

I will upgrade every 3 years if necessary. I am due one next year. So I will be switching chipsets to Intel's Haswell whenever that releases (2014 I belive) which means a new CPU, Motherboard & RAM which is basically a new computer.

Currently my SSD is the thing I want to upgrade or get at least buy another one, my 60GB isnt enough and is kinda slow only 300r/150w.

My 570 is fine for now but a new 760 or 770 are rumoured to be uber fast
