£600 build questions?

Is it possible to build a £600 gaming pc, I have tried but I always end up going about 2/300 over.

I would like an SSD and all in on watercooler but somehow I just cant get it into the £600 range.

If someone could help it would be much appreciated.

Buddy for 600 pound if you want watercooling and a SSD it would be better not to go with those since you wont relly need watercooling and SSD's are just for starting up windows and programs faster so thats relly not needed for gaming. If i would go for a 600 pound build:

I've already got some stuff from my existing machine (SSD, another HDD, Mouse, Keyboard Speakers)

Just waiting for the case to come in to see the clearance for the CPU cooler, both water cooling units and mechanical ones I'm looking at are around ~£50-£60



Hi there, for the best performance up to £600 I would go with this build :  https://www.aria.co.uk/WishList/neuQHkEbP0qOCMgN46aFbg,,

or if you can squizz an extra 50 quid than this will be a bonkers pc :) https://www.aria.co.uk/WishList/PE0PdFxWB3tH9RjxngMSKg,,


Ps. once added to basket it will know off all reduced prices and the first build is £600.10 and second £657.10


just a thought, but how about a progressive build

do a £600 build with out water cooling, and just run it of a stock cooler then say in a month or 3 time buy a watercooler and oc the balls of ya rig.

I have decided that I will go for this http://www.ebuyer.com/lists/list/138909 

Its over 600 but it has the pheriphal devices included

meh not a ocz fan personnaly but its your build dude

Is there something up with ocz that I dont know about? 

I am new to buidling a computer, what would be a better option?

well if your asking me hypotheticaly if you were to insist on staying with on ocz i would be like well at least get a vector, otherwise dont bother.

it's been known before now that ocz ssd's have died after like a year, like the agilitys impaticular.

i would say get a intel, mushkin, samsung, corsair,kingston, or even adata

also check out aria.co.uk, they got some good rates on ssd's theese days
