  1. well for around 800 bucks your really getting into budget intel range. you can build a very decent system around the i3 2100 for 800. and if your primary interest is gaming. even the i3 out performs the top of the line amd cpu's. should i include mouse/keyboard in a build or can i assume you have that laying around?
  2. I don't have a mouse and keyboard, the £500/$800 was for the tower only :)

    If you recommend any good mice/keyboards for gaming that are not too expensive I'd be very happy :) These do not need to be in the £500 budget, they are seperate

    Thanks

    Um, maybe outperforms in many areas and certain games, but I wouldn't go as far as say it is incredibly elite. For one, AM3+ would give the option to upgrade to bulldozer later. I have intel myself, but the performance per price of AMD is pretty good.
