  2. This would be pretty decent, while keeping to the £600 budget.

    Intel Pentium G620 - £45.46
    4GB Corsair DDR3 1333Mhz - £18.64
    Asus P8Z68-V LX - £76.37
    Seagate Barracuda 500GB - £65.00
    HIS IceQ X HD 6950 2GB - £194.99
    Coolermaster Elite 430 - £39.65
    Be Quiet Pure Power 530W - £44.95
    Philips E-line 21.5'' Monitor - £102.20
    Samsung DVD Burner - £12.99

    Total - £600.25 on www.ebuyer.com


    The CPU there may seem quite weak but you actually get similar performance to an FX-4100 or FX-8120 in games for the moment and then you could upgrade to an Ivy Bridge i5 in a few months if you want. You can even overclock it since this has a Z68 board.

    EDIT: Just to add as well, my friend has that monitor and it looks amazing. I would highly recommend it.
