i would suggest to start with go for a 22inch lcd (£3 more), and also a better graphics card, (£7 more) maybe a ati 4850 can be had for little more than the one you have there
and im sure someone will build you up an i5 rig, do you have a budget in mind?

The ati 4850's are ddr3's will they be compatible? Well Id prefer not to have the new stuff, I remember last year reading wait a year you'll get all the topspec cheaper if you wait.

"save 40% price getting 95% of the performance by waiting 1 year rather than getting the top spec of now paying the full whack"...

Im not saying my list is top spec of last year because I don't know but I for sure would like to see a bundle that is all about value..

Budget can go to 1k if the price is worth the performance, I do have vista ultimate but its ony 32bit.. I have changed my basket with the suggestions.. 22inch lcd, case and 4850

thanks

Too add a little umph maybe this cpu with this video card but you'd need a better power supply. Something like this or a bit cheaper this adds an extra around £150 but for the gaming you do it will definetly be beneficial aswell as general computer tasks.
