thanks gudlucker.i took a quick look at the site...it really is competitive.You can also choose to remove or add some of the hardware.
Now the specs i referred above need any update or remove ?Im not sure for an nvidia or an ati card.And i dont really know which of the motherboards is good... Any help on that?

from cougar extreme.. seriously powerful computer and should be able to play games for the next few years on med/high settings (would probably get to gfx cards)

that is all for £833

id advise getting a motherboard which can support 2 gfx cards and also quad core.. if you are thinking of upgrading in future

I was thinking about an sli motherboard but im almost sure that im not buying a second gfxcard.The prices at cougar are really good but im also thinking about the display. Im thinking of buying a samsung instead of the ones available at cougar..
