I have recently decided to build myself a computer as my laptop is outdated and can not handle 3d software applications and games that I wish to run.

This is the first computer I have ever built and i'm obviously trying to be cautious because of this. I have had a friend to help me and I have also tried to do a bit of research myself. To find all the parts I used ebuyer.

Please look at the parts below I have chosen and let me know your views and if it will definatley all run ok.

What is it you would reccomend then? The main reason it may seem expensive is because of the monitor I have chosen. Given that all the parts are good quality i would assume that they would run very well. My budget is preferably between £500 - £600 but I will be willing to spend more if certain parts will benefit me in the future.
