Thanks Technicalben. I wanted an Asus but I couldn't find a good one at a reasonable price from the z68/z77 chipset I think they've got rare with age. The ASrock one I got is well reviewed and it the...

Derp double post only just noticed. Sorry about that.

Hey guys sorry about the lack of updates. The past few days got busy so I haven't had much time to work on my PC. Got as far as stripping everything down and reseating the processor and CPU cooler...

Just noticed while I've been disassembling the 24 pin cable came out really easily just now. I wonder if I nudged it when trying to insert the card. I did check this last night though. I'll keep...

Right I'm about to start testing.
In reply to Technical Ben - no I'm not overclocking.
Another quick note I've been using an anti static band while touching any of the internals (even though...

Computer specs at the bottom of my post.
So I recently got a new motherboard to replace a faulty one. I then had to replace a faulty hard drive as well as it wouldn't detect on my new board.

Right so I have the issue resolved. It was a faulty hard drive which I've now replaced. Unfortunately I have a major new problem which probably warrants it's own thread.
If any of the mods want to...

Thanks for the advice so far. I've checked out quite a few sites along with ebay and this board seems to be out of stock in most places. Ebay had some but I'd have to import them and with the import...

Wonderful, the day after I posted that it got updated to say it was only one developer using them. I had assumed from reading the original article it was Microsoft itself doing it across a wide range...

Turns out Desktops aren't dying, they're just hiding in cupboards and pretending to be consoles.

Fear not I have not betrayed the high pastures of PC gaming nor the noble steed (desktop) on which I ride through them and which you helped me build.
But there are some exclusives I wanted a ps3...
Just thought I'd give a quick update.
First the fan uh... ahem. Turns out I'd blocked it. My powersupply came with a load of dual 6 pin wires - with an extra two pin on a splitter so they can...
I ran a quick test today, unplugging the non working fan from its connection and testing a sharkoon I'd bought separtely and have yet to fit. The sharkoon runs fine so I'm guessing its a bad fan....
I finally got it built. Took me about 4 evenings, and a lot of cable management but other than a brief problem (RAM wasn't seated properly) its now running fine.
Thanks for all you're help and...
After much research I've come up with these as a much tweaked draft.
Can anyone spot any glaring errors, incompatabilities etc?
CPU: Intel Pentium i5 2500k
CPU Cooler: Be Quiet! Dark Rock...
My recent search has been for a case that doesn't look horrific and can also keep things reasonably cool. The best I've found so far is the Fractal Define R3 ...
I know most of what I want now but a few questions remain.
First is it worth going for a GTX 570? I've heard great things about the GTX 560 ti both here and from tech friends. Is there any major...
Thanks for the advice.
My specs have slowly started to take shape - though as before these are just an idea subject to change.

Being desirous of playing modern games and also to have a (non borrowed) working PC I’m currently researching building a new one. I would like to build it myself to learn the process but I’d be...
So I want to build a new PC. I’ve never built one before but reading about how much more bang I could get for my buck makes me think it’d be a good idea and its something I‘d like to learn to do. I...
