I'm in the UK, and I plan to purchase these items maybe a week after New year. I don't need an OS, Keyboard or mouse. The Processor is Overclocked, and the monitor I'm using is 1300x768.
I plan on using this for a bit of everything, I'll be running a few games like L4D2, Portal 2, Maybe CoD and Skyrim.
I also plan on using it for photo-editing, movie editing, making music and Building things in CryEngine 3.
All help is appreciated. Thanks. :sol:

Do you already have a HDD? Last time I checked you can't install Windows on an external (or as your main drive).
