hey guys
basically, im a total newbie, this is my first build ever, ive only ever replaced and installed some hardware before, never really built a system from scratch although it doesnt seem too hard
im still 16 and have little money but i want to built a basic system with room for improvment later on i intend to use it generaly and for gaming aswell so its gota be able to keep up for another couple years at least
after searching ive decided to go with an i5-750 processor as i hear good things about it
ive basically looked at proccesor-mobo bundles because it saves alot of time and effort on my part :D 
i basically need advice on the whole thing but especialy the processor-mobo im not looking to spend more than 370 GBP all together, ive got some spare bits at home anyway
here are some of the links ive looked at

http://thecomputershop.x2tek.co.uk/product/Intel-Core-i... price: 316

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=40... price:250

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/motherboardbun... price:265


really hope you guys can help :sweat: 
btw this is a pre built rig and seems pretty good, you think i should just buy it and be over with it?
