ok but this kind of bugged me. how would u know (living in america) what prices are like in UK and that you would have to spend loads more than there. You can buy an extremely good gaming rig for under £1000. Of course you could spend up to about £2000 but this would be like the very best stuff.
I would suggest you get the AMD X2 4400+ get this from ebuyer they have best price at mo.
for motherboard depending on SLi or Crossfire (i went for crossfire) i would get an asus board.
have a look at the asus SLi premium from ebuyer. or the asus a8r32 crossfire 3200 deluxe from scan. (thats what i got)
for a case i got the thermaltake tsunami, which is nicest case in my opinion. have a look at either of the 3 sites.
you would probably just want to get some valueram either corsair or kingston.
tell me what u think of them and we'll go from there
