Just had another look, at my budget and think i can maybe extend by another £80-90, and so have has another look and this is what have come up with.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4GHz 1066MHz) Socket 775 L2 8MB Cache Retail (any real advantages over dual? just going on price looks good anyway!)

Asus P5N-E SLI 650i Socket 775 Onboard Audio ATX

Corsair 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL5(5-5-5-12)

Antec Nine Hundred - Gaming Case with 200mm Top Fan - No PSU

2x BenQ FP92WA 19" widescreen TFT Monitor 1440x900 700:1 300cd/m2 5ms

Not sure if i should be spending extra on a CPu or graphics, although hoping to some time later on maybe to increase to SLI.
