#5 was where I got most parts when I built 1st tower. Used them for CPU and motherboard when I upgraded....RAM and hard drives I think was or Ebuyer

looks complicated,
is it that much cheaper than buying off the shelf, or is it just the fun of doing it?

Wasn't sure whether you would need a windows license or get 1 off muppet. Windows 8 oem is £80. A 2TB drive is £72 quid, but you can add that later.
oh and 1 of these
ok, this is a good start,

what about if I went for a 2tb drive and not the SSD, and used more money to get 12GB or 16GB of ram.
[Image: fs_overall.png]
and what sort of gaming pleasure would this give me?
I'm assuming pretty fucking good?

I would ask what you are going to do with the system, if for gaming 8gb will be plenty, or if you must be greedy 16gb, but no game will use that amount of ram yet.

Defo get an ssd, maybe scale back to a 120gb and include the mechanical drive. With a 250gb ssd, you can elect which games to put on the sdd to improve the load times. If you dont require the bluray drive you can drop that, and just install windows via pendrive.
