Ok, in my terms, that's around 298 GBP...which to be honest will struggle to play, and i'm presuming here...the latest games you wish to play?

Would i be right in thinking you want to play the latest and best games, like Crysis?

That puts you at 536 before shipping, and that doesn't include case, os, mouse, keyboard, monitor or optical drives. So if you need any of those you can try and fit them into the 64 bucks you have left over, or if you don't need any of them you can upgrade any of the components for a bit more.

also that price is with the 73 dollar cpu, and that cpu will overclock like a beast and will match a lot of higher end cpus. not like q6600's or anything but its an extremely solid cpu. Nos can attest to that.

well, the wd should be a 7200.11 which last i checked were faster then the seagates. BUT IF THIER NOT! then no biggie and replace it with a seagate. also i just remember the 320gb one's being extremely cheap.

and thanks verny its a wonder what tf for almost a year will do to you
