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?

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

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.
