    theirs some bundles on ebay i7 motherboard +8gb ram between 350 and 500
    or ask local pc shop for a barebones set up and then put your own windows on that will save a bit
    if you want one built for you i would save up a little more do it your self you can save alot more than having a shop bill you to do it

    What do you plan on using it for? Have you considered AMD, they will match Intel performance on many aspects, with the exception of heavy video editing and a few benchmarks. The money you save with AMD you splash out on a better hard drive and motherbaord, also the new AM3+ motherboards will be more future proof than Intels. A decent graphics card is a bit hard to determine unless we know its intentions, at base level for a decent graphics card your want atleast a 5850 for ATi and 460 for Nividia or higher. Also if your building one yourself don't go cheap on the power supply either, oh and lastly the best Hard drives for 1TB storage that you can get are Samsung Spinpoints amazing and very reliable.

    I've had both AMD, and Intel, neither have a problem and my current AMD phenom II x4 965BE has been in my system for 2 years overclocked and over volted with no problems and over-volting an unreliable processor would be sure to cause a problem. They are honestly solid, and in regards to gaming there is nothing between them.

    http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/c...ng_sweetspot/3

    That shows there is no difference, the only Intel worth the extra money for gaming is the Intel i5 2500k.

    Just because a processor is cheaper doesnt mean its not as good or reliable, it actually outperforms Intel in many area's. intel just charge the extra, because its Intel same as Alienware do with their laptops.

    This is an AMD build - http://orders.ebuyer.com/customer/sh...c2hvd2NhcnQ%3D

    It doesnt include windows as I wasnt sure if you needed if you do add £70. Its a tad over £550 when windows is included, but it will last, the power supply has plenty of juice. The motherboard will support AMD's processors in 2 years times even their newer releases. Going Intel will cost you around £50-£100 more for the same performance where your going to have to sacrifice the quality of graphics card. For gaming the quad core is fine, and a black edition so can be overclocked easily. 8GB of Ram which will is plenty, these days you want to aim for 6. Or add £35 for a Hex Core (6) Processor.

    Just to add mine is similiar with a slightly lower powered graphics card and I can play everything maxed or very close on a 22" monitor such as Bad company 2, Crysis 2, Left for Dead 2 etc..

    anything new is going to be fine for you to be honest i thought you were going to be a extreme gamer or do a lot of video editing
    if the last pc was a 10 year old one then anything you buy will be faster
    just think of a computer like a car buy cheap you get cheap buy quality you get quality that last
