Hello YouTube, it’s Tango Echo Alpha here, armed with my cup of tea as always! Sorry if my voice sounds different to normal, as
I’m bunged up wih hayfever! In this video, I’m specing out a £900 gaming PC build that
will play all the latest games at 1080p with high framerates and great graphics settings. All of the prices in this video are from a
retailer that I have used loads and am very happy to recommend – Overclockers UK. The
prices were taken from the Overclockers UK website on the 19th July 2016, so the prices
may vary when you come to watch this video. I’ve been doing these PC build videos for
a little while now – I hope you enjoy them and it would mean a lot to me if we can hit
20 likes on this video. Starting off with the CPU, I’m recommending
an Intel i5 4460 – a Haswell processor running on the LGA1150 socket. At this kind of price
point, I wasn’t going to recommend the 4460K because of the price difference – the 4460
is available from Overclockers UK for £169.99. To keep the 4460 cool, especially in the scorching
UK temperatures that we’ve had today, I’m recommending the Be Quiet! Pure Rock CPU cooler
at £29.99 from Overclockers UK. This is similar in design to all of the other CPU coolers
like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 etc and I really like Be Quiet! products. For memory, I’m recommending 8GB of Hyper
X Fury DDR3 RAM – this comes as a two 4GB DIMMs kit and is £38.99 at the time of recording
from Overclockers UK. The FuryX memory can be overclocked to 1866MHz if you wish. Socket LGA1150 motherboards are starting to
become a bit rarer nowadays, since Skylake has become available. But some of the older
Haswell processors, like the 4460 represent fantastic value for money so thankfully you
can still get some LGA1150 motherboards. The one I am recommending is the MSI Z97 Gaming
5 motherboard at £113.99 from Overclockers UK. The Gaming 5 supports 4 channels of DDR3
RAM, supports three way Crossfire and two way SLI, has 6 SATA connections and on board
HD audio and a Killer NIC. It also looks bad ass! For mass storage, I haven’t included an SSD
in this build, leaving you to choose your own if you have the extra cash available.
For a hard drive, I’m recommending the Seagate 1TB 7200 RPM HDD – this is an OEM hard drive
with a 2 year warranty and it’s available from Overclockers UK for £41.99. I like NZXT products as many of my regular
viewers will know and my ‘go to’ recommendation is the S340. Having said that, I want to keep
the price down a little so in this build I am suggesting the NZXT Source 210 Elite – a
basic mid tower case in black for £42.95. You can replace this with the S340 if you
have the extra few pounds – or indeed, replace it with your own personal preference. For a power supply, I’m recommending a reliable
unit – the Super Flower Green HX650W 80 plus gold PSU. This is a quality PSU from a great
brand and it’s available in black for £72.95 from Overclockers UK. Finally, for the graphics card I am recommending
the MSI GeForce GTX980Ti graphics card – their GTX 980Ti Gaming 6G variant. This is a powerhouse
of a GPU and since the release of the GTX1080, prices have dropped to clear the old stock.
The MSI GTX980Ti has 6GB of GDDR5 memory and a core clock of 1178MHz that boosts to 1279MHz.
I can speak from personal experience that you’ll be able to overclock that! The GTX980Ti
will make short work of modern games and if 1080p, high framerates and better graphics
setttings are what you want, then this card will deliver with a price of £389.99 from
Overclockers UK. Put simply, this is a bargain GPU right now. So the total price for this build when I recorded
this video was £900.84 at the time of recording on the 19th July 2016. This is a great PC
build given the heavy discounts available on the GTX980Ti and it will play all the latest
games at 1080p with great framerates and graphics settings. I hope you’ve enjoyed this video – if you
