Nice build, but I wouldn't quite call it the best for £650- Could have got different parts and a whole lot more performance for similar price. But clean build +1 (Please add more pictures)

Good Build, but you could have made it a lot better just by changing a couple of things:

CPU: Not going to be mean, but this processor is really bad (for gaming / youtube) and my highest recomendation would to be to swap this out with the 6300 or 8320/8350 as soon as possible.

GPU: The 960 is a good graphics card, but judging from the videos you do on your youtube channel (EuroTruckSim / Minecraft) you will hardly never push the 4GB mark at 1080p, so you could have quite easily downgraded to the 2GB version and saved some money.

Case: I always say this is personal choice, but very pricey for this type of budget and you could have saved a lot of money here to invest elsewhere.

PSU: Other than the processor, try and change this out asap, Like Eltech has previously said "CX PSU is not recommended for gaming purposes" so changing that out would add some 'Reliability' to your build.

Overall, its actually a pretty good build. Aslong as it does what you need id call it decent, but like others have said, MOAR PICTURES PLSS :D

Hey Dude, I have literally just bought all my parts for a new build i'm doing, it cost me around £1200, ill tweak it a bit so it fits your budget but trust me, this price range is so good and the pc is a beast!

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/vC3qvK - Some things could be changed, but this is a rough idea of what i'd build with your budget. Hope this helps a little. Have fun! Cause its gonna be a beast what ever you build :P (Unless you know, you get a £10 pc and whack a Titan X into it..).

Heres a build if you want a Titan X http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/4r3qvK - :D Please for the love of god do NOT build this :D

Would have gone with an i5 over the FX ones, they don't have 8 physical cores like they say they do. PSU could be changed out although its okay.. But bad things aside, looks dope :P Gj on your first build!

You go with what you want dude, I was only trying to help. All because its an i3 doesn't mean its worse than an i5. The i5 doesn't have hyperthreading, which in games that take advantage of it the i3 can pull ahead. Like i said, i was just trying to help :/

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/qG3nf7 - Hope this helps, Do not use this as a final build, only took about 5 minutes to put it together. If you wanna go ahead with something like this ask me and ill do a more in depth build and why i chose the parts. This is just a general list of what you could buy, yes there are alternatives with AMD and such (Im NOT saying this is the best thing you'll get).

Hope this helps, Like i said if you need anymore help just ask. P.S. My brother had a build very similar to this for 1 1/2 years and he could even run BF4 1080p Medium settings so this is a "real bang for your buck." :D

Yes it would be good, but what i was trying to do is save money where you do need to spend it, and spend more money on something like a better graphics card. The build you created will play the games you want and is pretty good, I'm just saying for 800USD you could get better.

Okay, just a few things... This build will work, perfectly fine in fact, but you have put money where it is just not needed:

CPU - Great processor, but for a low end budget build, maybe a little over kill, maybe a i5-4690, still a great CPU, amazing for gaming but less money.

CPU Cooler - You have asked about the cooler, you need one, otherwise your CPU will basically explode after about a minute of powering on, the stock heatsink is good but not amazing, the cpu you have chosen is locked, meaning you cannot overclock, i would recumbent spending about $30 on a half decent CPU Cooler. That should be enough for a build like this.

Motherboard - Great motherboard, but again, for a low end budget build and little overkill, go for around $70-$80 board instead i would say.

RAM - For gaming 8GB is the standard and well enough for the games you have listed, but you may need a little bit more for photoshop and after effects, you have added 16GB which is a lot, probably a bit too much than you need, thats something you can decide :D

Storage - Fine, could add an SSD but maybe not for this tight of a budget build. GPU - If you have listened to what i have said (not saying you have to but..) you will have saved some money, put the extra money you have into a better cpu, although the 960 is great, its not the best and if you look around you have get much better cpu for only a little but more money (ask me if you need help with this part).

Case - Completely up to you, I have this case, Very good for the price.

Power Supply - WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY TOO OVERKILLLLLL. You could easily power this PC with a 450 - 500watt, change it if you want but if it was up to me i would say you are spending way too much money here.

I have pieced together a build for you, around 800USD = http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dVxhHx This is cheaper than 800USD so that you can alter it if you would like,=, but i think this would suit you.

Thanks for reading, Hope this helps a bit :D - Jake

P.S. -- If anyone needs help with their pc, if your new to it, or upgrading, leave me a message ill always be happy to help, I'm not the best, obviously, but i know what I'm talking about :D (most of the time).

Reasoning: CPU - I chose the 5960X because it has 8 cores and hyper threading which is extremely powerful, plus it supports DDR4 which is fast than DDR3 in most applications. If you wanted more processing power you could choose a Xeon, but if you were going to do that i would recommend choosing a board that supports DDR4.

CPU Cooler - You said that you were thinking of water cooling this system, and if this is game to be a machine that is ran 24/7 (all the time) i wouldn't recommend the water cooling root, this is simply because there are too many things that can go wrong with water cooling and it needs a lot of user checks regular because if something goes wrong it could take most of the components with it. In my experience for a machine that is left on for extremely long periods of time (in my case: a server) air cooling is perfectly fine and very reliable, i have chose the be quite heatsink because it will keep the processor very cool when using CPU intensive programs.

Motherboard - Nothing extremely special just gets the job done, very very reliable and supports up to 128gb of DDR4 3000mhz, this board also has 10 6g/bs Sata ports so you can have all the drives you want with it without having to use extra adapters. There are 2 ethernet ports so you can be connected to two internets at the same time, double the speed, and like every new board, USB 3.0.

Memory - Again, you didn't specifically say what you are going to run on this system, so i just took it with a pinch of salt and added 64gb of ram, this is at 2400mhz which is very fast and can power through RAM intensive programs, if you need more like I've already said this motherboard supports up the 128gb so you have that option to add more, and the other way, if you think this is too much you can take some out, adjust to your liking.

Storage - Im not sure what you are going to need for the storage so this is up to you to decide, for safe measures i have added 2 x 3tb drives from a reputable brand, seagate, some people say their drive fail on them but I've used the exact same drives that i have added and they have lasted me years. And to top it off i have added an SSD for the applications you are running, they rarely ever fail on you so they will be good if your system will be running for a long time.

Graphics Card - You have mentioned that you want to run at least 5 monitors but you will do little to no gaming, the GTX 960 is a very new card so i comes with all the new benefits, a new card is always good because if it dies or breaks for some unknown reason, the company who its made by are likely to have a warrant for it and you can get it replaced free. New Nvidia GTX cards have nvidia surround which support up to 5 monitors and can play Minecraft maxed out... Even with shaders :D!!!

Case - This is completely up to you i just chose a case that is big enough to fit everything but isn't HUGE. and plus this case is fairly new and is very quiet although you did say noise isn't a concern.

Power Supply - In a build like this the Power Supply is the most important component, if this goes (dies) if could break mostly all your components with it. So in a build that is running for a long time you are going to need a very good power supply that has great efficiency and can run for a long time without getting hot. Antec's new Earthwatts PSU's have eco mode which mean it is very economic (if your into that sort of thing) and the Platinum+ rating means your electricity bill will not go sky high. The recommended PSU for this build is around 450 watts but this 650watt will leave room for overclocking and any future upgrades.

Case Fans - Lastly are the fans, you have said that the sound inst a problem but one thing i can't stand is a noisy PC, Noctua are known for extremely quiet but extremely effective fans, 4 of them will mean 1 back outtake fan, 2 fans on the CPU cooler to keep it frosty and one intake fan at the front. This will keep the PC almost silent when you turn down the Rpm's and will keep a constant airflow through your system.

Thank you for reading through, if you made it :D Leave a comment if you hated or liked it, Hope this helped you sort out your build. - Jake
