Hope people can give me some pointers on a computer I am planning on building. I reckoned this offered pretty good value for money, but I'm sure more experienced folk will prove me wrong.

Thanks in advance guys for the help

Thanks for that spot on the HDD. Don't see any difference in the two except on price. Ideally I will just get everything with ebuyer, unless of course there is an insane bargain to be had, otherwise it's just more hassle than what it's worth

If there are no more obvious replacements, then I will probably just go ahead and build this. I have done quite a bit of research into the processor and gfx card etc and they seem to offer good value for money

A triple core would be nice for some games that can use more cores.
