What I would recommend is getting the X-treme R500 from MESH and customizing it slightly.

Click on "tell me more" under the X-treme R500 and then click on "customize". Then go down to memory and change it to 2048MB DDR400 Memory - PC3200 (2x1024)[upg £ 75.00], then go to the video card and change it to 256MB nVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT - TV-Out + DVI - PCI-Express[upg £ 120.00].

Its a shame you can't build your PC because you would save a few hundred quid.

I have no experience in building pc's. Is it fairly easy to put together once I have the parts?

Does it require soldering and all that stuff?

If its not all that hard in putting together I might consider having a go. Im just affraid that once I put it all together it wont work.

Thanks for the advice

THERE IS NO SOLDERING!!! All u have to do is get special screws that connect the mobo and the comp and connect them. Then but in the power supply and get it to hold then the hardrives and RAm etc! It's easy!!!
