Building a pc that is being used for alot of 1080p gaming and alot of Sony Vegas/cinema 4d/ after effects rendering. Parts i have: 500gb hdd, 250 gb hdd, cd drive,windows 7 ultimate pci wireless. Need: gpu, cpu, ram, psu ,mobo, case. I can however go a little over £300 and i don't care about which vendor the parts are.

There isnt much you can accomplish with 300$ unless there are big sales. If oyu want good 1080p gaming you would have to spend 400+ for cpu+mobo+graphic card. Unless you can find used parts.

My suggestion is a i7 2600k, a cheap p67 board if u can find one and a gtx 560 ti (around 200-150$)
If you can spend abotu 300+ for just graphics card alone, then get gtx 480 sli. It consumes abit of power but it nearly as strong as a 670.

Something like this would do you fine for med/high 1080p gaming:

Why put £300 and not $300 just curious?

In that case maybe an AMD A8 APU which has an integrated GPU which is good for 720p gaming though you will be hard pressed to buy a discrete GPU and CPU for that kind oif budget.

I am different from xfxrising, im trying to find a build for usd. The image you show showed a pretty decent build for around 4xx$. All it needs is a case.

Before you decide to open up shop. I strongly recommend you do some studying/reading and gain some knowledge in hardware and software troubleshooting as well as PC building as it helps youre reputation if you are able to support the people who you sell to incase anything should go wrong with your builds.

If you know what you are talking about and doing, theres no reason why people who buy your systems wont recommend you to their friends and family.


Get good at building your own pcs first before you decide you want to build machines to sell...

Also given the current economy and some excellent budget deals that bigger well established retailers come out with, its a fight between david and goliath.

There is money to be made, but very little especially if youre gonna focus on budget builds.

I really like your advice, the problem with me is understanding some of the software issues. But when it comes to hardware related stuff such as building, replacing, upgrading pc parts. i have no issues in that area. I've built an ivy powerhouse before, just 1 month ago.

Sold it on kijiji, i believe in my opinion as long as the system is built brand new. There should be no errors, they have atleast about 2 and half year of using the pc before they can say "i've encountered a software error what should i do", and by that time they would be on forums like these(techpower).

I know it probably sounds unethical, but i leave those sorts of problems to be dealt with by error experts. Im a student, i do this for fun its not really my choice of business career.
Its soemthing i find fun and i do on the side, incase i need some pocket change or so.

HD 6670 is not fit for 1080p gaming whatsoever, it's an entry level GPU. It's nearly always better value to source the parts seperately than going for a so-called "bundle deal".

My build (2nd post) say's you're wrong, ok not quite £300 but at £325 inc delivery it's a lot closer to his budget than £400, it can be done and quite easily by shopping around and/or buying used parts as well. Not arguing, just saying ;)

I understand your point and i respect it. but occasionally some components are unfortunate enough shall we say to suffer a critical failure which means it needs to be RMA'd and you being being the guy who used your account to buy those parts and put it into the build are responsible for them for at least a year.

I made builds for people that have tested perfectly but then suffered a hard drive or PSU failure within 2 weeks or 6months and its my responsibility to fix it because i take pride in what i build, be it some £300 system or £100 system thats mainly made up of parts i pulled out of the trash.


Its alright if youre building a one off PC and sell it, but you are planning to make a small business out of it.

No warranty will seriously effect your sales and people will lowball you because theres no garantee that what you build will last 2-3years like you planned.

reguardless if you do it on the side or as a hobby. There are responsibilities and forfeiting those responsibilities leaves you liable to be taken to court and even sued for breaching the sale of goods act.

you are selling a brand new machine with brand new parts not a secondhand one. and there are rules/regulations that everyone needs to abide by when buying or selling goods. and it doesnt matter if youre selling on ebay, gumtree or any other internet site.

but i digress...If the price is cheap enough there are people that dont care about warranty because its cheap. but to make that possible it has to be stupidly cheap which means that you either operate at a loss or make enough for one or 2 pints at the pub at the end of the day and youre not gonna be happy with that are you?

Im not trying to argue with you, I do things differently and have a different opinion on the matter but thats just because ive been there and ive done it. Im just trying to impart some useful advice to you based on what i have learnt/experienced doing the same thing.

There is never anything wrong with a little business advice, knowing you're probably more experienced with what you do. I 100% agree with what you say, but then again if an item was to experience technical difficulties, thats what warranties are for right? I purchase these items under warranty, obviously i dont tell them how much i bought them for.

But as long as the item is still under issued warranty the problem is in their hands, and like i said; E.G lets say a graphic card stopped working or a usb port on the board stops being active. I have no problem helping them renew it as long as they're willing to pay the labour fee or they pay for a new one. After all, it did not get messed up in my hands.

Its like buying a prebuilt pc off ncix/ newegg, they do not give you a life time warranty on a prebuilt, but they give you a store's certain amount of day/time to return the product if not satisfied with the product under certain conditions. (sorry to cut between the examples but il use a t.v remote for example, you purchase it and you get a store warranty, but once a certain part of the product has been broken such as the seal, the warranty voids. Its rather a b-tch move but its a way to make profit and keep the business healthy.)

In my case, if they were to purchase a prebuilt from me, i test it in-front of them. Make sure it works like new, brand new installed os and everything. I benchmark, (believe or not, but not all of them are interested in the benchmarks), and i do about 30 minute stress tests on the system to show them that nothing could possibly wreck it unless the parts ware out. (upon request of course) And as long as the parts are still under warranty any sorts of software issues can be easily fixed by replacing or heading over to the expert's store.

Some vendors refuse to allow direct RMA's through them (sapphire and Powercolour as well as a handful of other vendors do this) and will only accept returns if its through one of their certified retail partners so again the customer looks to you to deal with the RMA. If you want to charge them a small 'administration/handling fee' for it, by all means go ahead, all im saying is as a system builder who is buying new parts that come with warranty its your responsiblity to honor it.

Im not asking you to offer lifetime warranty. Its not your job to do that. All im saying is give the people the same 1year warranty as any other retailer would normally give you otherwise you'll end up with a lot of pissed off customers and probably a lot of other trouble too.

I once had a guy threaten me over the phone because I sold him a Xonar D2X and he had no idea he had to plug in a 3 pin floppy drive power cable to power it. so in his head he thought id sold him dodgy hardware. after he calmed down, the problem was easy to sort out.

HAHA that guy must be lacking somewhere in his head. But then again i really like your business ethics, i would like to work/do trades with individuals that not only care about their business but they see through that their costumers keep coming back. (in a good way)

At £10 more than a i3 2100 it's a great deal would go nice in that build I did earlier if the OP can stretch to £335 he will have a very capable gaming rig :toast:
He might slice to 4gb Ram now, and add later if need be ;) should balance out pretty nicely
