Is this for the rig itself, or do you need to get a monitor and all as well?

You should substract 10%, cause prices are higher in Europe. I don't know about Ireland.

Total comes to $1,525 in us money and the amount you said you had was 100 dollars more then that. This would be a killer machine that would play any and all games on max settings. I did a x2 for the memory so you could have 2 gig.

you should be able to get more than this with euro dollars i think your processor can go up to a 4800 and your video card go up to a 7600 or maybe even a 7950 gx2!

Personally im an ATI guy. Ive had nothing but great luck with them. The only geforce cards ive had luck with were the 3's like 5 years ago. After that I wasnt able to get max details and speed. Processor wont make any noticable difference going to the 4800 but it wont hurt to say you got one .
