How does this setup look?

Thanks peeps.

After a little research, and assuming I can borrow the money, I have come up with this setup. How does it look? Any potential compatability problems?

  1. Cool. What elese? :)
  2. If thats your general budget I would drop down to a 3800+ and buy 2gb of ram with the saving instead of 1gb.

    I think dual cores more than any thing will take advantage of 2gb.
    You can easily overclock the 3800 to the higher speeds.

    The graphics card is a way over priced for what it is now, you could get a 7800gt for the same price or a x850xt for £165 both of which are better cards than the 6800ultra.

    Hope that helps
  3. Just like like the other guy said, get 2 Gb of memory. It would be a lot better for gaming.

    Is what I'm planning to get. I hope it will keep me going for a few years :)

    If it's got any compatability problems, or setup difficulties, please let me know. Thanks.
