Budget: £600 for hardware but £900 max with keyboard/mouse/monitor

Purchase date: This weekend latest 2 weeks from now

Usage: Gaming is my main use for this computer also slight multitasking for everyday use (two monitors)

Websites: I would prefer to use Scan but if any other websites support paypal then im happy :) 

Preferred parts: LGA 1156 socket motherboard would be ideal for my uses from where i can see with future upgrades going to be easy especially within my budget. Also the 5770 Is a must :) (XFX Preferred by miles)

Other Info: Overclocking Will take place also in the future i can see Crossfire most powerfull cards would be the 5850 in crossfire.



So what do you all think i could get within my £600 budget :whistle: 


..Well i get carried away in my dream of a supercomputer... So any ideas are welcome thanks!

If you don't like that price you can go AMD and save a few euros.

Was thinking of AMD when I get there ill end up using the phenom x6.

And thanks for the reply looking through the items right now and I noticed the I5 750 (Had my eye on it for quite a while). The system you chose Is really good thanks again also I love the mobo got upgrade potential.
Thanks yet again.

Just a side note in 2011 1156 will be replaced but the i5 750 is really powerful so you wont need to upgrade. Glad I could help!
