With his budget he can afford a 4870 no problem. 1000 pounds is like 2,000$ (USD).

Looks good, check Scan.co.uk or overclockers.co.uk for this stuff

I recommend the Asus P5Q Deluxe because of its 8 phase power, Cases are personal preference, if you want you could buy 1 HD 4870 and 1 HD 4870X2 when it comes out for a rig that destroys every game out there (maybe not Crysis)

Use Ebuyer - Cheap Computers, Laptops, Digital Cameras, TVs & more! over overclockers, they're not very reliable

and &#163;1k = $1800 approx
