Hey
I'm looking to buy a new PC and I'd like to spend up to £1000, I don't mind if it's custom built or I need to assemble [I'll have my friend assemble it]. But I haven't really got a clue when it comes to hardware.

I'll use the PC for gaming and watching films, so I want it optimised for playing the latest games at the best setting whilst running at good FPS. I play a range of games in the; FPS, TPS, RTS and MMORPG genres.

I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me design a build or link me a few custom built rigs within my budget.

Thanks a lot
Ryan
PS. No operating system is needed.
