Hey guys, looking to build a budget gaming PC around Christmas. So far I have selected the following items:

http://www.scan.co.uk/products.....tx-v23-psu
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/msi-760ga-p43-(fx)-amd-760g-s-am3plus-ddr3-sata-iii-6gb-s-sata-raid-pcie-20-(x16)-d-sub-atx
http://www.scan.co.uk/products.....0-cashback
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(2x4gb)-corsair-ddr3-vengeance-jet-black-lp-pc3-12800-(1600)-non-ecc-cas-9-9-9-24-xmp-15v

I haven't included a HDD as I plan to use my current drive and upgrade to a hybrid HDD/SSD setup later when money allows. Thanks for your time and I look forward to any feedback. :)

i can't believe these prices! is there that much of a difference between Nvidia and intel prices vs raeon and amd?
Everything looks good to my eyes, if you want you could always go a bit higher on RAM, it never hurts too much, but yeah, I think this is awesome, go for it!

Can you also tell me if this website also ships to Portugal? I'm confused how low of a price this stuff is! i mean, there isn't a high difference between £ and €.

Yeah they are great value and also offer a £10 install insurance for any accidents! Unfortunately their site says UK only shipping I'm afraid though, sorry. :(

Another question, anyone know which of these two motherboards would be best for my rig? I thought the MSI because of USB 3 etc, but here they are:

sorry EvoDoom, my bad.

On the links you gave it says "404 Not Found" to me, but I think I'wd go with the MSI. Please update links and I'll tell you a closer look
