I am looking to build a new PC soon and will have around £500.00 to spend, this could creep up a little.

This is the list, all are subject to change if you guys suggest better etc.

MOBO. Gigabyte GA-M720-US3 AMD Nvidia 720D Socket AM2+ 7.1 channel audio ATX

GPU. 1GB Sapphire HD 4870, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), 3600MHz GDDR5, GPU 750MHz, 800 Cores, 2x DL DVI-I/ HDTV, HDCP

CPU.AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000 2.2GHz 1MB Socket AM2+ 45nm Deneb

RAM. Kingston ddr2 1066 PC2 8500 X 2/3

HDD. Maxtor DiamondMax 10 6L300S0 300Gb 7200 RPM SATA drive X 2

I have a Tagan TG-480 power supply and this cpu cooler, click here

I am looking to stick it all in one of these cases.
Coolermaster Storm Sniper Tower PC Computer Case.
CoolerMaster Storm Scout Mid Tower Black Case.
Thermaltake BLACK ARMOR CASE WITH 25CM WINDOW.

Thanks folks.

Give Cube 247 a try - my mate has just bought a pc from them recently, they are reasonable priced but still use top components. have a look on their website, but if your wanting advice give them a call. My Mates system is ace, im going to be replacing my old computer at beginning of next year, im looking at the Tucana system they advertise.

Gengis,

Gigabyte's are good mobos and that one supports most functions / processors

For an extra £30 i'd get the 4890 card.

The processor seems a bit weak. At minimum i'd go for the 6000.

You'll be wanting 4GB of 8500 ram for best bang for buck (even 6400 will do), assuming you use 64bit O/S.

Make sure your power supply has 2 pcie connectors for the graphics card.

I've always been a fan of the aluminium Antec cases myself.

Also, overclockers uk do a good range of pre-built and mobo/processor bundles, standard and overclocked.

Best of luck

Thanks will take a look, but although these days its questionable to build your own, I do get a lot of pleasure in putting one together.
