Default Building a gaming pc

Hi, at the moment i have got my mind on this set up.



I need to keep under £750 maybe stretch to £770. Do you think this setup is okay? Will it be able to play games like Crysis?

Thanks, Ben.

You will lose lots of performance with the 8600 graphics card. Yes, its DX10, but some of the 7000 series cards outperform it. I like everything else, however.

So which card would you recommend instead of the 8600 GTS?

Everything looks great except the 8600GT. Why not spend a few more bucks on the 8800GTS 320MB?

Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800 if you can find any. But I think those OCZ seem decent enough.

I could buy 2 sticks of this?

Works out £20 cheaper.
