Upto now I have this is mind

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ £322.97
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe £134.25

All I need now is ram so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

erm theres no point in getting a SLI board especially one with 32x PCI-Express (gimic) when u want a ATI card.

Im a fellow UK'r, so il help u anyway i can, you need to find out what PSU you have, and tell us wat the AMPS are and all the other necessary specifications.

For the Video card, i have the X1900XT which is best value, you can OC it up to X1900XTX speed easily, so get XT.

For motherboard id get DFI lanparty Ultra-D.

and for CPU id get Opteron 165 Dual core.

Id probably get a new case depending on what yours is.

Ok i made a small list, id recommend:

Hiper Type-R 580 watt PSU £ 60
DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D £ 95
G.skill 2GB DDR500 PC4000 £ 160
512MB Sapphire Radeon X1900 XT PCI-E £ 327.83

Total £ 902.80

Plus shipping costs add 50 quid, and Windows XP home - 65 quid.

So thats my recommendation
