Hi folks, I am wanting to go from the switch of Xbox to some serious gaming. I am looking to play the likes of Battlefield, this new Zday game and other FPS types at the minute but want to also think of future gaming ventures that I might get into. I am preferably wanting to go through overclockers.co.uk or scan.co.uk as they offer credit over a fixed term which means I can keep my savings. I started of by wanting to just buy a tower system like Alienware and get going but the more that I look, the more I want to understand the computer that i will be using. I am a 34 year old mechanic and a great believer in trying new things so this is where I am. I have watched a few videos from Newegg and still dont fully understand what parts would be best for this type of system.
This is what I have thought so far,
I was thinking of the i5 as from what i understand, the i7 is not going to benefit me much with gaming and is a bit of money extra ? I have a hard version of Windows 7 professional already and have contacted microsoft who say that it is fine for me to install it on my new system. I was thinking of a budget of around £1000 all in including a good monitor but i will stretch another bit of money if it is going to GREATLY benefit me. ANY help with this would be greatly greatly greatly greatly appreciated.

You are a star. Thank you sooo much for your time and patience. Fantastic setup ! Made my order last night with SCAN but very dissapointed to recieve an email at half seven tonight telling me the monitor is actually out of stock and what other model did I want. Very dissapointed with the fact that they wasted a full delivery day before even packing my items. Anyway, thank you soo much.
PS - This forum has soo much potential if it was email supported to keep people updated on posts
