Can I get some advice on this one pls? Looks real good to me for the price, wondering if anyone has any thoughts or advice on what would be better?

Thanks Smile

nice rig i wouldn't get myself as i think if your going to get a new rig i would go intel (quad) when i get my new rig thats the root i'll be taking if you let me know the max you want to spend i'lll throw a few links your way also what sort of games will you be playing ?
one last thing which is an option is building it yourself via the overclockers website but that depends on wether you like to build yourself or wether you like to but pre builds

Cheers for the info Chicken. I always thought AMD was better than Intel for gaming though? Maybe that was the old days...?!

I was going to go for a pre built one, but only cos I don't know much about the software side of things. I can set up all the hardware but when it comes to setting up the bios and all that rubbish then my lil brain gets a wee bit confused!

The only thing I'm not sure about that link is the 2gb memory. I'd really prefer 4gb as at the minute I really only play CoD and Warcraft, but I want something thats gonna be able to handle newer games over the next year or so (they don't have to run uber fast, otherwise I'll be spending close to a grand, but I would like a machine that can run them!)

In total, prob wanna spend about £500 max, so I know I'm not going to get an all singing all dancing one for that range of dosh, but I know I can get a pretty decent one and a nice upgrade on what I have at the minute (current spec = AMD Athlon 2800+, 2.09GHz, 1gb ram, 256mb gfx)

I'll have a scout about for you matey.. yeah like ya said 4gb nowadays is probably gonna be the norm.. AMD are still good but Intel are leading the market with their quad stuff..

I nede to get some spare for work today so I'll have a look for you aswell Smile

I think this would be a good system for you mate..
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=FS-087-OK&groupid=43&catid=1080&subcat=&name=%22Titan%20Spirit%22%20GT

although what I'd do is probably sell the ram that comes with it on ebay and get 4gb of this
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-022-GS

may be a little over your budget but the system will keep your head above water for a while Smile especially if you run it on XP and not that fat greedy fucker Vista Smile

Do you concur Dr Idaeus? Smile

they are both nice, the parts that I listed come out at 501.26 with delivery, and is pretty much future proof as far as the mb and processor and ram go

Thanks for the help boys. Going over budget is not the end of the world and the advise is great. I'll see what I can sort from the info about over the next couple of weeks Twisted Evil

Oh and it will def be XP, not Vista. I've heard nothing but bad things about the newbie!

put it this way, vista is nice.. very nice.. but if you have a game that needs 2gb ram in XP vista needs 3.5gb.. if you use Vista then y9u have to accommadate the 1.5gb just for the os before you factor in your games.. if that makes sense... XP is better for RAM consumption.. vista .. DX10 and other goodies.. XP all the way for me for gaming, vista a maybe in the future..

p.s. vista isn't M$ top priority anymore and they've re-opened XP support cos Vista is that bad Smile they're working on a newOS that is more efficient.. think ME and Xp Smile

Even tho XP doesn't recognise the extra, surely that won't affect any applications? They must still be able to use all the extra otherwise what is the point in having it? Or did I miss the point completely lol?!

from talking with ash i've scrapped the vista idea but he said in regards to good old reliable xp they maybe working on something in a new service pack when it comes out which fingers crossed they will do something about the ram eg it registaring more than 2/3 gig ask ash about it when you catch him on ts matey afro
