£600-700 build help

Was looking for any recommendations anyone had regarding components. I would rather have an intel cpu but not sure about the rest as there are so many options. Lokking for the best I can get for that price range. The PC will be for just everyday use but I'm thinking about starting gaming on the PC, thanks

For what you want, this will be fantastic: http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/xJwO

That CPU cooler isn't necessary, but I would recommend it, or at least a Hyper 212 Evo.

An alternative, cheaper option: http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/xJxzB

Both will be great for gaming, allowing you to play modern games on high graphics, and pretty much any game with steady FPS.

For your price range, I wouldn't recommend Intel. Personally, I prefer Intel because of their performance, but AMD is far better for budget builds. The FX-8320 is a fantastic processor - extremely fast; great performance for whatever you throw at it. Overall, this system will be great, but if you want to save some money, you could switch out for a cheaper GPU, such as a 7770, but if you want to begin gaming, I would recommend keeping with the 7870, or at least a 7850. Good luck - hope I helped!

cheers, the 2nd link doesnt seem to work but thanks for some ideas

No problem! The only difference with the second link is the CPU cooler - it has a Cooler Master Hypre 212 Evo instead of the Phanteks one.
