Hey Guys, im trying to help a friend build a pc but he lives in the uk and uk prices are waaayy higher then usd prices, he sent me his build and at first glance it looked good, then i tried to do better using uk prices. I went to a more GPU heavy build but stayed in the z97 platform so he could update the cpu when he had money but hes pretty strict on his limit. I know, a pentium with a 970? but hey moar frames right? Let me know if he should stick to his build, or go my route and any other comments adjustments i should make . Thanks
