It would be a build from scratch. I just have a laptop at the minute.

My plan is to save £1500.00 - £2000 (thats roughly $3000 - $4000) by June time. I go on holiday to Florida next month so all my spare cash is tied up into that.

The PC will be a Gaming machine. I want a high end system that I can build for this kind of money now - but can keep improving. Yes it would be wildly overspecced for playing MMOS such as AoC - but I'm into gaming and such and I would consider building/improving a PC as a hobby. A bit like modding a car and such as car fanatics do.

I''m liking these Cases :

or

Mobo

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_790i_ultra_sli.html
with DDR3 memory
or
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_780i_sli.html
with DDR2 memory

CPU

Probably http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.a ... 80562q6600

Monitor

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/130925 (maybe 2 of these)

GPU
2 x http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.a ... 8512gt0c2e

These are not definate, I need to add all the reat, HDD, Keyboard, cooling, power ect.....only just getting started and have a lot of browsing/reading to do.

Feel free to comment/suggest.

Keep in mind that I am new to PC Building/components and although I understand computing (I sell IT Storage) I'm not up to speed on whats available for home use and whats good for what.

Sorry, but your links are no worky. Go with E8400/E3110, 780i with DDR2-800mhz for cheap, then upgrade a year or so later after Nehalem is out.

Is it going to be overclocked & how much? What's the monitor resolution?
