Sounds like you have ordered the above system, then amended it but it is still in pre-production yes?

We need to know what your budget is as well as what monitor it will be used in conjunction with (resolution and refresh rate or make and model). On the face of it, the spec is not the best...the PSU is the absolute minimum so would allow no upgrades in future; GPU is kind of neither low or high refresh 1080p, just kind of in no-man's land in the middle. But, without a budget, no idea what changes could be made...an AMD system would have been better though

Yes I've made amendments to quite a few things, the PSU being one of them, but it's hasn't updated yet.

My budget was around the £900 mark and I'll check my monitor details as soon as I get home.

You should always check before ordering. That's not a good value for money system at all. I would recommend cancelling, getting some advice on your uses and then re-ordering.

Below are some links that we always recommend new customers consider before hitting the ole "buy" button :)

Thanks I will have a read through those links, I've still plenty of time to cancel or make changes, much appreciated.
