Gaming performance will be on the mediocre side. The fx is a decent processor when overclocked and the 6670 is a weak gpu for 1080p. I would consider the 6850 for the bare minimum for 1080p. The networking is a wired ethernet port.

Have you considered building yourself?

Thanks for the reply :) 
I have considered but in truth it looks rather daunting, am I likely to save a lot of money if I choose to build myself or are we talking saving 10's of £s?
