  2. ohhh okay. i just assumed it was a normal SSD. Tbh they dont have a huge amount of money and i would rather just save them as much money as possible. I think ill just stick with the scorptech build without the SSD Also is it going to be better to get a ATX board or the uATX one you have listed? and the bitfenix merc alpha (which was my first choice) isnt in stock at scorptec atm, any other recommendations?
  3. Oh it will never be overclocked or anything. He is like 11 and he only really plays minecraft and other low endish games at the moment but at some stage hes going to start playing some real games :P I think the SSD would be a waste, its way to small to be able to use to load any games and hes only really a kid so he doesnt need it. Thanks for the quick reply btw :)
  4. Hey guys, Building a computer for my GF's brother who is stressing over not having a computer so im looking to get this tomorrow. There is a tight budget of about 600-700 with no room to move. I have put together a quick build that seems alright to me but just wanted to get some input from some of the experts. (I am selling them one of my gtx570's for $100) Any input is appreciated Thanks.

    I was recently convinced into buying a HP N36L by the guys here and it was definitely worth it. All i had to do was stick a graphics card into it and it just worked perfectly. I havn't tried anything 3D as i dont have a 3d display, but so far it has played everything perfectly. If you search around ebay or gumtree you can get them pretty cheap. I only paid 210 for mine brand new in box.

    He's pretty happy with it for now, so i think ill leave it as is. My 120gb ssd isn't too bad. I generally only have 1-2 games on it at a time and just swap them around when i start playing something different.

    ah yeah that makes sense. Talking to my mate this morning and he is pretty set on using the Coolermaster HAF 912 advanced. So after changing the motherboard and case i have this for a total of $1473

    I was wondering why it was so cheap! Shouldn't have done that late at night haha. Modular power supply would be good actually, I got one for my machine and it was really good. Is there any reasonably priced ones?

    Okay taking into consideration what Dasa is saying i came up with this build: Im pretty happy with what i have here at the moment, but is there anything i really should change?
