That is a pretty solid system.

It is definitely getting a little old, and the dual core isn't great for modern games (BF3) but nevertheless it is a solid computer.

Gigabyte is a great manafacturer and the E6600 isn't really anything to shake a stick at.

Also the DDR3 RAM is pretty decent too.

As a pretty basic entry level gaming PC it is a pretty good start, just don't expect to play crysis or BF3 maxed out at high res.

i did think it was a good board, deffo better than my ddr mother board,

yes getting on a bit read that the socket 775 for cpu are ending this year but can hold quad core so can update that down the line.

dont no what brands are best for motherboards so looks like i have found a desent brand lol.

yes the ram it what court my eye first. my pc has 2gb @ 400 mhz :heink: 

im not a massive gamer but do like the odd games like call of duty/fifa 11 but mainly linking it to my 42" tv for films/bluerays

cheers for your info. did not no if its worth bovering with :hello:

The second one is a little cheaper, but also a slower processor, I personally would spend a bit more and go with the faster CPU.

Gigabyte and Asus are the 2 best mainstream boards.

Either of those kits will be a huge upgrade from your current system ;)
