This is a simple stock/No OC 1155 Ivy + GTX 670 based gaming config sub 700 quid off ebuyer UK

Use this as a core/reference and edit/add as per your needs/wants :D

Lol allot cheaper than what i was looking at and is that card better than the 7970, and whats SLI and Crossfire? don't mean to sound like a noob i just have no idea about this kind off stuff :lol:

SLI/Crossfire are just multi GPU configurations by Nvidia/AMD where 2 or more GPUs combine for better performance - anyway a single GTX 670 suffices for 1920 x 1080 gaming

Stay away from OCZ Vertex 2. I've got the 60GB and I credit it as my last OCZ purchase ever.

I also have a 160GB 7200rpm or 10000rpm drive (Velicoraptor) and can say that they're faster than a normal harddrive, but nowhere near as fast as a SSD. Get something like a 128GB SSD and a basic hard drive with enough GBs or TBs for all your media and data. That's what I'd do.
