Lastly what brand of Graphics would you suggest in the £100 range?
Please tell me if I've missed anything and a massive thanks for taking the time to check this out!
Everything looks ok other than wouldn't sli or crossfire and the power supply will not work it says it only has 1x PCI-Express 6pin Connector and any gpu for gaming uses 2 my gtx 460 uses 2 and all cards newer do for a gpu. i would shoot for a gtx 550 ti they seem like a very solid card and its around 120 at newegg. the dvd drive idk about it not running game disks but it probably does case question i dont know what that means lol.
That psu is not good 450 with a higher end gpu will not work he needs 600 at least not to mention it only has 1x PCI-Express 6pin he needs 2 6 pins to run a newer gpu and even year old 1s use 2.
also stick with the asus mobo. asus is a good company and the mobo he suggested wont run the corsair vengence which i have and its very nice ram.
^^Seconded, 6850 with an Antec 430W here. 600W would be a bit on the overkill. And I'd agreed, if you can find it in your budget somewhere, the leap to an i5-2400 will make a significant difference over the i3-2100 (4 physical cores>2 physical cores+2 virtual cores)
