Thanks for your reply ive about £400 saved and over time will probably spend another £150 or so. I had a terrible experience buying a gaming pc on ebay and ended up sending it back and am now considering building my own.
What parts would you recommend could you possibly list them i used to be in the know when it came to pcs but that was a long time ago.
I have looked on overclockers.co.uk the prices seem good is there an other good sites for parts i would imagine postage would be cheaper if buyin most parts from the same site.
Ideally i would like to play bf3 on high at a good frame rate. im not expecting miracles for the money im spending and would eventually get a really good gpu.
