£800ish for mainly gaming PC Tags: New Build Systems Last response: August 30, 2009 1:58 PM in Systems Share quartez August 30, 2009 11:01:49 AM APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: As soon as possible BUDGET RANGE: GBP £700-850 SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, surfing, watching movies, desktop publishing PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor (initially going to use it on a 32"HDTV but may get a monitor further down the line), Speakers PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: ebuyer.com, although I am open to suggestions if there are cheaper sites PARTS PREFERENCES: None - open to any brands OVERCLOCKING: Maybe - Have never overclocked before, but I'm open to new experiences SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe - in the future as an upgrade route MONITOR RESOLUTION: I believe the maximum of my HDTV is 1366 x 768 but would assume any future monitor would exceed that. ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I built my own PC back in 1999, but am quite out of touch currently, so the below build comes entirely from what I have read, mainly on this site.
