and 2 USB 2 ports. should do fine.

really tempted, heat

I like the look but apparently its no good on the floor due to dust. As there are no dust filters I read using this will require very regular cleaning due to very quick build up of dust in all the heatsinks and fans

I love this, and I'm a total Mac Fanboy......... I know I could go away and do the deep research in Google, but what would it cost to put some sensible components in here? £500?

Not even really for gaming as such, although I'd be interesting in that if it was at the right price. Just to have a capable Win10 machine up on the wall as "art".

I done a build for 700£ about 5months ago.
Had a cheap case, 970, i5 processor, 8gb ram, 500gb ssd. I could have got it done for nearer 600£ but the guy it was for wanted everything from Amazon which wasn't the cheapest place for the parts.

Yes, interested. Can you pm me

+ This case. Roughly £500.

A mid level GFX card if you chose to get one later would be roughly £140.
An extra 1tb HDD would be £40.
Only extra you will need is keyboard/mouse and speakers.

You'd have yourself a mighty fine PC!

And a monitor! Wouldn't you go for 2 sticks of RAM for dual channel? And maybe downsize the SSD for a smaller disk + big mechanical storage?

Haha I always forget about the monitor! And you're right, I didn't realise that RAM was only 1 stick.

Here's a slightly different and cheaper build.

A monitor will cost you £100-150 for a decent 24 inch.

It's no good ANYWHERE due to dust! It's a totally open case, so unless you have it a clean room environment and wear a full protection body suit when you are gaming, then all your components are going to be covered in a nice layer of dust in a matter of months. And don't think a can of compressed air will help.You'll accrue a layer of that sticky dust that only a wipe can remove... which you really don't want to be doing. Such a ridiculous case, although I do like the look of it.

I wouldn't go for a CiT PSU with that build one of the main components you should never skimp on is the psu the cheaper units are generally cheap for a reason go for a quaility corsair or other main brand unit some only cost an extra £10 or so, just do the research. I wouldn't trust a £25 psu with any system less so if the cpu costs £160, around £40 will get you an decent PSU where you can add a discrete card later if needed without worrying about overloading the PSU.

This is a great looking case for a water-cooled pc. Although I would go for the larger p5 case.

Keep your rooms clutter free and wall mount it and dust won't be such a huge issue.

It's CiT with an 80 Plus cert, I doubt it will be bad but for about £10-15 more you can get a Corsair CX430 or similar if you want the brand.

80 plus cert only refers to the power efficiency of the PSU not the quality of the componnents alot of the cheap PSU's watt ratings or either on the limits of the units capabilities or with some way over stated, I would never take a chance on something that could basically take out the whole of your PC if it goes bad which happens but more so with cheaper PSU's jonnyguru is one of my go too sites to check on PSU quality which varies even within main brand units, he does a full battery of tests and teardown showing the quality of the internal components.

I agree that it's worthwhile spending a little extra more for a quality PSU. However, what people often forget is that the vast majority of PCs in the world today are run on 'crap' quality PSUs and they last for years.

Yes but broadly speaking you can't use 'cheap crap' components and make an efficient power supply so an 80 Plus cert does go some way to confirming it's half decent.

To be fair this case would need 3 mechanical drives fitted. Leaving any of the drive bays empty would look odd in such a visual case.

I have the p5 and it excellent. I actually get less dust plus it's easier to clean.
