What the person posted above you from scan.co.uk:


http://www.scan.co.uk/products/amd-f...etail-10-cashb 88.09
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/antec...-(new-version) 39.96
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(...-9-27-xmp-150v 46.56
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/550w-...an-atx-v23-psu 39.00
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-x...yport-2x-dvi-i 119.62
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-...cs-on-board-at 92.26
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/samsu...sata-black-oem 13.18


Total 438.67

Also, it appears you get a free copy of Nexuiz with that 6870. I've tried the trial (on the Xbox 360) and thought it was pretty fun.

Just a note, from what I've heard, the FX series quad cores are really like Intel dual cores with hyperthreading enabled.

6870 and FX 4100 is pretty damn decent for a gaming PC in that budget I'd say.
