Just My Specs. Obv its ddr2 firstly so I gotta change that xD

Honestly I could build a i5 build with a 670 for the full 800 pounds keeping some parts since my HDD isnt half bad.

But you guys know your stuff so please post what I should get. I will be getting the 800 pounds in December. So if theres anything I need to wait for. Dont tell me :p  Im really IMPATIENT! sorry.

But yeh. Just post What I should keep and what I should dash. And links are helpful. ONLY UK! unless you know your stuff, but I mean prices. No american Sites. Thanks :D

First off what parts are you going to be reusing? You can definitely reuse your HDDs, optical drives, and operating system. I'd look at a new case, PSU, motherboard, CPU, cooler (if applicable), and GPU.

My cooler is the Arctic Cooler 7 - Cheap and cheerful. But I knew I could still use the HDD's. Thats why Im not buying a prebuilt computer. But If you guys could lead me to some nice builds to get me the bang for my buck it would be great!

Sorry I forgot to add I do a TON of video editing and multitasking. I would prefer 16gb. Unless you think its SERIOUSLY not needed. And my limit is bang on 800 pounds but I think i could make this work :)  Do you think thats the MOST i can squeeze out of my money?

OK that's fine - just take the RAM I added and double it. Or get G.Skill Ares for a bit less.
