  • Changed cpu to something better. You don't need one with a onboard gpu as you will be using a seperate one.
  • Changed mobo to suit the cpu
  • Changed hdd to a cheaper one that is faster.
  • Changed psu to at least a bronze rated.
  • Changed graphics card to the r9 280 which is more powerful then the 760

It's 10 pounds more but these parts are much more solid.
