Hi everybody!
I signed up because I need help with my first gaming PC, and I know that this site has the smartest people for these kinds of things. :D 
Anyway, on to the build.
Since I live in Ireland I can't use Newegg and get the great prices that they offer, so I have to shop with Scan, which is the next best thing I could find that ship to Ireland.
I'm going to be gaming on my HDTV which has a resolution of 1368 x 768.
I know it's a low res but I want to be able to play games on max settings including Battlefield 3 when it comes out and I've decided to go with the HD 6850 which I think would be enough.
As in the title my budget is about €700 (can be a bit more) which comes out in about £620. THIS IS AFTER TAX AND SHIPPING.
If there is any improvements you guys could recommend that would be great, that's why I started this tread after all! lol

NOTE: I ALREADY HAVE A DVD DRIVE AND THE OS SO I DIDN'T INCLUDE THEM, ALSO IF ANYBODY KNOWS IF I WILL NEED EXTRA CABLES TO CONNECT ALL THE COMPONENTS TOGETHER PLEASE TELL ME. THANK YOU!

EDIT: here's a link to the whole thing, just get rid of scansure and raise the shipping to £20.
