  2. AMD is probably the best option at your budget.

    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 8MB £130

    You will have a hard time finding better RAM at any other sites, certainly for the price.

    GPU: XFX HD 5850 1GB £257

    I also found this at OCUK: HIS iCooler V ATI Radeon HD 5850 for a very good price of £232, so maybe if you can find the other or equivalent parts on OCUK then you can switch some of those items to that site.

    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache - OEM £56

    Only really needed if you will definitely overclock. This is a good performer in both temps and quietness. You will also need thermal paste if you buy a heatsink. Something like this: Arctic Silver 5 3.5g £6

    Disk Drive Anything £15

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM £79

    Total: £843
    Sorry for being ~£40 over. To cut back a bit you could get a 500GB HDD and a motherboard that doesn't do crossfire. Obviously try and order from as few sites as possible, my recommended maximum would be from two sites.
  3. Thankyou very much fella
  4. As for dust some dust filters would probably help out a bit, and of course clean inside once every few months. I use a vacuum cleaner to get out the worst of the dust in my case. Obviously use a bit of caution when near sensitive components.
