Hi everyone

I need a new computer, which I would like to design from the ground up so I can play all current games and any new releases. I don't know an awful lot about them and have a budget of around £1250 ($2,000).

What would everyone recommend in terms of processor and especially graphics cards etc.

Could everyone please post suggestions of what is the best specs and make/models of everything I need which will last for ages. Also, which computer manufactures are best (ie Gateway/Tiny/Dell).

Thanks Guys :)

You should be able to fit that all in your budget.

And if you want to get a nice computer that is already built. Try Alienware. I dont know if the are available in the UK though.
