you are asking for too much.

Id say wait until you have atleast 700 and have a much better build.

he is paying in pounds, which is almost $1000 US dollars....

https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/M...px?ID=10247168

Look at that, i put it together. It cost almost $800 USD, so just look for similar parts on a website that ships to you

EDIT: leaves room to add another 4850 at a later date. This rig should be able to play COD4 on max settings really well

again, it's a US only website...so you'll have to find these parts at a good UK website (sorry, i don't know of any)
Nice build... check Scan.co.uk or Overclockers.co.uk for that stuff
