I'm thinking of buying a gaming pc {including moniter/flat panel screen). I've had a little look around and am a bit put off by the price. Am i doomed to spend £1200 or is it possible to buy an adequate set-up for around £600-£750.
Alternatively, would buying the component parts seperately and paying a nice man in a pc shop to put it together for me be any cheaper, or is it a good idea for a total novice to have a bash at putting it all together myself?

Also i have a hd ready tv, would it be a good idea to use this as my screen along with a cordless keyboard and mouse and keep the cpu out of the way

At one time, it was cheaper to build your own. Now, however, you get better deals from places like Dell, novatech, etc...

Try looking on the web, you may find some mice bargins if your lucky

I have to agree with mattyc_92, its cheaper to buy an entire system than it is to buy the components and build it yourself.
For the money you suggest you can get a gamers PC, you will obviously have to make some compromises but I would have a look at something like this click here and add the monitor.

The nforce 3500 looks good but could do with some more ram in it for a gaming machine.

But as others have said dell are doing some amazing machines for your budget so might be worth having a look.

From previews of upcoming games I have seen you are going to need a decent pc to run them, you may as well spend the £1200.
