    To avoid compatibility issues I recommend using sites such as http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/ or something similar to give yourself a framework and work from that.

    The build looks ok and should work but I would not rush into it mate - I would do your research on the product you are buying and also you could post how mush you would like to spend and let some of the members give you options as I am sure we have some tech guys/girls on here

    I'd go for an 'older' CPU and also 'downgrade' it to an i5, since the hyperthreading isn't going to help you in games, the newer CPUs wont have any signifigant defferances AND to keep costs down. The Haswell series of CPUs are also known to get very hot so if you still decide to stay with what you've chosen i recommend you to get a new cpu cooler.

    By getting an 'older', 'downgraded' CPU model (Sandy Bridge?) you could probably get a better GPU, this would result in a better computer overall.

    You could also get a 'weaker' PSU since 750W isn't needed for this rig. :)

    Ok here is the rundown:
    For the biggest bang for buck:

    Get an i5 processor thats 3ghz+. i7's are mainly for people who require a LOAD of processing power ala rendering videos or 3d animation. If it's purely for gaming then you're looking for something like this:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Graph...gy/dp/B00CV3E3WK/ref=pd_bxgy_computers_text_y

    Gigabyte is a good motherboard brand and that one seems fine.

    That ram seems fine - never heard of that brand, but apparently its not bad. Personally I prefer corsair as they're the best, but then you pay for it.

    I don't recommend anything lower than a geforces 660gtx, preferably 670 or 760 (but those are expensive)
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-NV...qid=1381256755&sr=1-1&keywords=gigabyte+660gt
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-NV...qid=1381256755&sr=1-4&keywords=gigabyte+660gt
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GV...qid=1381256755&sr=1-2&keywords=gigabyte+660gt

    That SSD+your 500gb hd seems fine, however I'm not that fond of samsung for SSD's. If you have money left over then look at OCZ, Intel and Corsair. They're a lot more expensive, but give the best performance.

    The psu is a good choice
    The dvd rom doesn't really matter as who uses them these days, you just need one in case you need it.
    and the casing is mainly an eyecandy platform :p
    If you are a person that prefers good looks above functionality then choose a casing you like (Med tower). If it's for functionality, then read below:

    A casing supporting 120mm fans vs a casing supporting 180mm fans is louder, as the fans have to rotate faster to provide the same amount of cooling. Also you need fewer fans thus making dust less of an issue when you clean out your pc. Also the "fan speed" dial is just a gimmick and in my opinion an extra cost. I have linked my casing and has been one of the quietest casings I've ever had. Also has an air filter in the front to help with dust. The screw less functionality for drives and dvd rom is also awesome and it has an amazing cabling system in regards to the HD's.
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Coolermaste...1_5?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1381258375&sr=1-5

    Lastly for optimal gaming performance I recommend actually getting a soundcard as well. Onboard sound is horrible and also causes performance issues. This is a really good choice for bang vs buck:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Express-Nor...qid=1381258015&sr=1-1&keywords=asus+soundcard

    I hope this helps ;)

    hm...i've said i never reply to any of those posts again..but...

    stay with the samsung m8... out of 55 ocz vertex and agility ssd's we stocked customer pc's in the last 7 months we got 21 back until today, all broken (2 just today)... not one single samsung 840 so far and we build 42 machines with those...
    i'm running one by myself and theyre ok. Dont see any difference to my kingston v300.
    to the point of best performance i can just say: at a certain point you don't see any difference...and best performance is 0/0 when your hardware is broken..

    my 2 c
