Hello! 

 

I've decided to change my rig from my ye olde' Intel Core2Quad / Radeon 4850 and 3GB DDR2!

 

 

I'm looking at purchasing - 

FX-4300/FX6300

4GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM

MSI XFire mobo

AMD RADEON 7870/7850

1TB Seagate barracuda 

750W psu (incase I buy another gpu in future for crossfire)

Corsair Carbide 200R / Zalman Z11

 

 

I'll be using the PC for office work and gaming (BF3 BF4, Medal of honor, Dota 2, Crysis 3)

Any links or help will be appreciated,

Thanks!

Hmm, 4gb of ram is a little low. I reckon this would be good for you, with the maximum share of money on the GPU (7970) and it has 8gb of ram. It's £477 which leaves money for the case and things I didn't include.

Make sure you have United Kingdom in the top right selected btw

Would you guys recommend the FX-4100. Heard some stories of it running very hot?

I really wouldn't go lower than a FX-6300.
