Hey lads!

I've decided my PC is getting a tad old for some of the new games that are coming out now and am looking for the best deal I can get for a good gaming PC!

I was hoping that if I a noted some of the things I'm looking for you guys might be able to point me in the right direction for a good deal.

I would ideally like the following,

AMD 4200 dual core processor,
Good graphics card at least a 256MB nVidia 6800
2gb memory
2 * 160gb hard drives
19" TFT
I-trique 2.1 speakers and subwoofer.
creative sound card.

and am looking to pay no more that £1350.

Any good/reputable pc selling web links would be appreciated.

LOL good job Freddog!

You obviously get carried away same as me when looking into buying a new PC - not got the time right now but had just a quick look at the website you linked - take a better look tomorrow when I am not working.

cheers mate.
