HI GUYS

i am looking to build a new pc for myself something thats fast and great for gaming and would like to know what parts i should get, i have a budget of around £800. i am looking to buy

(1) harddrive size isnt really and issue just big enough to run windows and afew games from.

(2) ram

(3) motherbaord

(4) cpu

(5) gfx card

i am currently running a radeon hd 5870 1gb do you think it would be more cost effective to buy a second 1 of these and run them as SLI or to just buy a new card as not sure what would be more powerful.

i am not interested in overclocking so am looking for fast and powerfull straight out the box,

thank for any help

i want this system to last me a few years so really dont want to have to replace parts in 18 months,

Some alternatives:

1.Hard drive click here £62.99 Free delivery with supersaver

2.Ram click here £40.96 Free delivery (8 GB should be sufficient for your need atm, can add more later)

3.Motherboard click here £152.34 Free delivery (this is an ATX board with appropriate size to fit in your full tower & twin pci-e 3.0 x16 as well as other expansion slots for future upgrade should you wish)

4.Gfx card click here £299.60+£10.19 delivery

5.CPU click here £159.99 Free Delivery ( you'll need IvyBridge CPU to fully utilise the Gtx 670's pci-e 3.0)

Total comes to £726.07 & should keep you happy without the components becoming obsolete in 6-12 months or so.
