    Hi, if you could kindly suggest a i7 spec please :), my budget is £1200 pounds and I will be using it for gaming - I need a monitor as well, no OS as I have that atm.

    I was coming up with some ideas, and I am not sure if I should go crossfire with lower end ATI cards such as the 4850 or a single 4870 or 4890.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, I took the parts I found best out of all the suggestions and added them together. The graphics card is missing, I am unsure what card I should buy right now, I have heard reviews of the 4890 making whining noises - which puts me off buying it.

    Those reviews youre referring to do you mean the one thread on here thats floating round that one persons having problems with? ;)

    Looks good, just make sure you find a card before you order everything to save double delivery

    Nice spec. Most high end cards have capacitor squealing (whining) so it depends more on the luck of the draw.
