I'm in the process (i.e. looking on the internet) of building a computer and think I have decided on this system detailed below
i5 760 2.8GHz
MSI P55-GD65 Intel® P55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 PCI-Express 2.0
4GB PC3-10666 1333Mhz (2X2GB) Dual Channel
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5850 TOXIC 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express
Xigmatek Asgard Pure Black Case
Samsung HD103SJ SpinPoint F3 1TB SATA-II 3.5"
OCZ StealthXStream 2 500W Power Supply
however, I'm a novice at this so have a couple of questions.
1. Is each component in this system compatible?
2. I'm looking at spending around £500 ish... should I be focusing more money on certain areas?
3. Following on from 2, is this balanced, i.e. there isnt one or 2 awful components dragging it down/ a component which is overly good and not being used?
4. Would you do it any differently? Is there anything I've missed (apart from OS/ screen etc)
5. Shogun on top spec?
