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.
Thanks!

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

    XFX 4890 1GB
    AMD Phenom II 955
    ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO
    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 scan.co.uk
  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?
    thanks
  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.
