Gaming system for £700 ($1170)?

Could anyone recommend parts for a good gaming system? I'll be spending around $1170 not incl. P&P.
Be playing game like Dead Space, Crysis, Far Cry 2 etc at 1920x1080.
I already have a screen, keyboard, mouse, speakers and Vista purchased.

  1. in the UK or US?
  2. I'm in the UK, and if possible I would like to buy the parts from scan
  3. How about this?

    XFX 4890 1GB
    AMD Phenom II 955
    Corsair XMS3 1600MHZ (although you could use any 4GB kit of 1600MHz ram)
    WDC black 640GB
    Noctua NH-U12P
    Thermaltake V9
    PCP&C 750w
    2x Scythe Kaze Jyuni 1200rpm 120mm fans
    and a DVD-RW

    that comes out to £702.68 plus delivery on OCUK, but it might be a bit cheaper on
  4. That's very nice thanks
    but the gtx 275 OCX is only £60 and it really does destroy the hd 4890
    and I could save that money by getting an x3 720 I was just reading about them
    would that be better?
  5. ^ the 275 does not destroy the 4890, at stock speeds they're equal, when overclocking, the 4890 kicks the 275 down to the ground.

    you could get a 720 but then you'd lose a small amount of OC potential and a core, if you want to save money on the CPU then get the 550 as they have a high core unlocking rate and overclock very well.
