hey guys I am new to the forum just wondered if you could help,


I am planning to build a new pc for gaming/ general web surfing ect. The specs I have thought out so far are:


Intel Desktop Board DQ57TM Executive Series

GIGABYTE GV-N440TC-1GI NVIDIA GeForce GT 440 Graphics Card

Intel Core i5-750 Quad Core 2.66GHz 8MB Processor



I don't need anything too fancy just want to play latest games without difficulty, I would like to keep the cost below £400 and I already have case DVD/CD drive and HDDs, but will have to buy ram and psu. Any advice for any improvements?

Budget? Check out my build for 450$ or 600$, give you way more performance.

The GT 440 is utter crap by the way.

Ok well what graphics card would you recommend for around the same price (approx £80 - that's British pounds not US dollars)

Youed, what processors would you recommend for about the same price and I usually prefer Intel if that's possible.
